KO and Tweety are interviewing Howard Dean... not hearing to much...



Dean talking about rules and such and says that no back room deals should be happening... I hope not dude.

Gawd... tweey saying ALL the polls show that McCain will win agaist either Hillary or Barack...





UM... No tweety. that is not true.



PLUS none of those polls mean a DAMN thing. They are hypothetical polls asked of people who have LAND LINES.



I dare the pollsters to start calling those that have cell phones only. you will see a much different result.

Comment by Raine on 05/06/2008 22:21:36
OMG... they have had THREE exit polls results about the REv. This is CRAZY!!!!

CRAP.



Reports of people being turned away at polling places in Indiana.







Comment by Mondobubba on 05/06/2008 22:25:24
Wow how can you have 0% reporting in Indiana and Clinton have a 2-1 lead? :scratchhead:

Nuns turned away as well... they lacked proper Voting ID.



Indiana nuns lacking ID denied at poll by fellow sister

By DEBORAH HASTINGS – 8 minutes ago

About 12 Indiana nuns were turned away Tuesday from a polling place by a fellow sister because they didn't have state or federal identification bearing a photograph.



Sister Julie McGuire said she was forced to turn away her fellow members of Saint Mary's Convent in South Bend, across the street from the University of Notre Dame, because they had been told earlier that they would need such an ID to vote.



The nuns, all in their 80s or 90s, didn't get one but came to the precinct anyway.



"One came down this morning, and she was 98, and she said, 'I don't want to go do that,'" Sister McGuire said. Some showed up with outdated passports. None of them drives.



They weren't given provisional ballots because it would be impossible to get them to a motor vehicle branch and back within the 10 days allotted by the law, Sister McGuire said. "You have to remember that some of these ladies don't walk well. They're in wheelchairs or on walkers or electric carts."



Nonetheless, she said, the convent will make a "very concerted effort" to get proper identification for the nuns in time for the general election. "We're going to take from now until November to get them out and get this done.

======================================



Gee, thank you voter rights advocates. Good thing you stopped the sisters from voter fraud.



F*ckers.

They did that with Pennsylvania too. It's based on exit polls, not the votes.

There is a very large part of my brain that says this is not unintended.



"they" don't WANT people to be able to vote. :grumble:

1% in Indiana... 61%-39% Clinton... this is the Eastern portion of the state. the EST portion.



I believe the Chicago TV portion of the state closes at 7 pm EST. 6 pm CST. oofda.

Comment by Raine on 05/06/2008 22:41:45
The new math...



Asked at the Indianapolis Speedway this morning, Hillary confirms that she views the threshold for delegate victory as the count that includes Michigan and Florida.



"I think it's 2,209," she said.



It's the logical extension of her demand that the states be seated, and also a gambit to push off the drumbeat of inevitability that Obama is trying to establish with a countdown to 2,025.



Clinton also declined to associate herself with Terry McAuliffe's prediction that she'd win Indiana.



"I never make predictions," she said.



Obama, slightly more boldly, says he feels "good" and that it's going to be "close."

===========================================================



:thud:



This is getting totally insane. We have been hearing 2025 for a billion years, and now THIS?!?!?!?

Comment by Raine on 05/06/2008 22:46:17

I voted based on the candidates' stances on puppies: cute or super-cute?

After scrolling down through the other comments, it seems that I am lucky to be tied to the Ref Desk - I hate all the Rev Wright sh*t and the stories about people not being able to vote - makes me so angry

Looks like it's gonna be another long night :yawn:

Al Gore Speaks about '08 race...



Al Gore did not rule out an endorsement in the Democratic presidential race, but all but ruled out a speculative scenario some have spun out as the battle between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama goes on and on -- namely, that he would emerge as a compromise nominee with either Clinton or Obama as his running mate.



In an interview today on National Public Radio, Gore at first laughed and was somewhat at a loss for words when he was asked about the scenario.



"In a year of remote contingencies, that's about as remote as you could possibly imagine," he replied.



He also expressed confidence that a nominee will be decided soon after the last nomination contests on June 3. "There will be a nominee before the convention," he said.
