Any Democratic candidate who cannot win California andNew York should call it a day.Obama could not win a single Electoral College megastate vital forany Democratic candidate, with the sole exception ofhis own home base of Illinois.OBAMA TROUNCED IN THE MEGA-STATES He proudly lists Alaska, Idaho, Kansas, NorthDakota, and Utah. What do these states have in common?They are states which a Democrat could never win in ageneral election. Delaware is a perfect state for Obama ri hVolvo-driving, chablis and brie elitists in thePhiladelphia suburbs, but it does not look likeAmerica. Colorado is another Obama state where thewell-off suburban voter can be decisive in aDemocratic primary. True, Obama won Connecticut, whichhas some union voters, but it looks like Greenwich,Cos Cob, and Yale carried the day. Missouri might fallto Clinton on a recount; in any case, the race wasvery close. Minnesota is a special case because of theDemocrat Farmer-Labor Party; this was in any case astate that went for Mondale, for various reasons nota good bellwether.Love your liberty? Why add amendment to the constitution? Love your liberty? Why support warrantless wiretapping? And a smoking ban.Shalom,--- Prof. Leland Milton Goldblatt, Ph.D. ®http://drgoldblatt.blogspot.com/
Ok, so what about South Carolina, and Iowa, Maine, Washington State and of course Louisiana? Your argument makes no sense at all. California and New York will be in the hands of a democrat in the general anyway. What difference does it make? Democrats are clamoring for something new, not the same old politics.
