Well stated, Mr. Amos.

What GG is absolutely clueless about is the ground that Obama made up in the weeks leading up to Super Tuesday. If the polls were to be believed Clinton should have virtually wrapped up the nomination on Tuesday. As it was Obama made New York a contest, and was steadily improving in CA. Clinton may have won the states with the largest delegate totals, but she won with a smaller percentage, meaning a strong Obama hurt her significantly.

If what Q said is true (and I am not doubting, I was wondering what the delegate totals remain) then this will be a convention for the history books. I seriously doubt whether Clinton can win any state remaining with a large majority. Perhaps neither can Obama, but he has won far more states with a 65+% than has Clinton.

By the way, I just read an article on MSNBC that some Clinton staffers are foregoing their salaries. I knew her funds were tight, but for staffers to work gratis this early in the game speaks of dire circumstances. The same article pointed out that Clinton loaned her campaign 5 million dollars with the hopes that she could get it repaid quickly. Obama raised over 31 million dollars in January alone. ONE MILLION dollars a day.

Who has momentum, GG??
