WV primary Blog... AKA: Mountain Momma
Author: Raine    Date: 05/13/2008 23:00:21

Almost heaven, West Virginia,
Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River.
Life is old there, older than the trees,
Younger than the mountains, growin' like a breeze.
Country Roads, take me home,
To the place I belong:
West Virginia, mountain momma,
Take me home, country roads.

All my mem'ries, gather 'round her,
Miner's lady, stranger to blue water.
Dark and dusty, painted on the sky,
Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye.


Country Roads, take me home,
To the place I belong:
West Virginia, mountain momma,
Take me home, country roads.

I hear her voice, in the mornin' hours she calls me,
The radio reminds me of my home far away.
And drivin' down the road,
I get a feelin' that I should have been home yesterday,
Yesterday.

Country Roads, take me home,
To the place I belong:
West Virginia, mountain momma,
Take me home, country roads.

Take me home, country roads.
Take me home, down country roads.


Tonite, we all expect Hillary Clinton to win the WV Primary. Some say it will be a blowout. I dunno.

There are a few other things to watch tonite, particularly Mississippi and Nebraska From a DCCC email:
After losing the last two competitive special elections for Republican seats (IL-14 and LA-06), the NRCC and its conservative allies have gone all out to try to hold MS-01. Republicans have had to spend nearly 20 percent of their cash on hand on a reliably Republican district. Democrats have spent only 4 percent of our cash on hand. The conservative group Freedom’s Watch spent at least $460,000. In total, Republicans have spent at least $1.7 million on MS-01.

Vice President Dick Cheney, Governor Haley Barbour, former Governor Mike Huckabee, Senator Thad Cochran, former Senator Trent Lott, and Senator Roger Wicker have all campaigned on Republican Greg Davis’ behalf in what Politico calls, “one of the safest Republican areas in the nation.” Additionally, President Bush, Laura Bush, and Senator McCain recorded automated calls that were sent to voters throughout the district.


There is also a race in Nebraska... They (the Dems) are choosing a candidate to replace the retiring Chuck Hagel...

So, with that... I say...

:usa: VIGILANCE :usa:

Well according to Terry McCauliffe as WV goes goes, so goes the nation.



Heya Scoop!!!

McCauliffe is a slick speaker, i'll give him that. But he is a true fertilizer salesman.

We love everyone, right? The Clinton campaign decided to act like the entire party is WV.

Raine - just popping back in to say that Hill should definitely retire the debt to herself - the "loan" she and Bill made to the campaign. If nothing else, she owes it to that kid who sold all his stuff to give her money. For shame. eta: and she should cover what is owed to Penn, too.

IF she can do that legally, I think she should.



I have no problem with teh Obama campaign paying the VENDDORS who the Clinton campaign has not paid...



But I have a real problem with paying off HER OWN PERSONAL DEBT.



Too many people who have donated to the obama campaign did not do so to pay off an 11.4 million dollar loan to the Clintons.

So, how big is the victory? CNN called it for la Clinton when I was at the gym based on the exit polls.



Speaking of CNN Howard Wolfson seems to have a bad grasp of the facts. He seemed to have said that the elections in Michigan and Florida were held before their delegates were stripped by the DNC. Oh? Really? :headscratch:

Muy importante. When you look at the crap that Penn has been involved in... David is a breath of fresh air.



Well, I believe also that Obama has actually had a major hand in his campaign. Unlike Hillary, who seems to let Wolfson, McCauliffe, Penn, run her campaign.

So, how big is the victory? CNN called it for la Clinton when I was at the gym based on the exit polls.



Speaking of CNN Howard Wolfson seems to have a bad grasp of the facts. He seemed to have said that the elections in Michigan and Florida were held before their delegates were stripped by the DNC. Oh? Really? :headscratch:


O.O

all hail Wolfson, master of the spin.

I am reading good news about the Mississippi Race.... Childers (D) 60% - Davis ® 40% 39/462 of Precincts Reporting





Still early, I know... But important. Considering all the people the GOP sent down to that state.

Looking at the numbers, there's 80K votes total between the two of them, and about 1/4 of the precincts reporting.



So all of this hullabuloo is over 320K votes???



At the end of it all, Hillary will close the popular vote gap by 100K. She'll add 13 pledged delegates and Obama will add 5.



This late in the game, it's nothing.

And so I have a question... WHY couldn't hillary clinton seal the deal without those 2 states?

I don't know where I heard it, but on one of the shows, they said tha tthe Clinton campiagn is searching furiosly for dirt on obama. I personally think that this was spin from the campaign and I don't believe it for a minute.



I think the worst about comments about this, especially since she brought up RFK the day after Indiana when she gave a speech in WV. I spoke about it on the blog. I know it makes people uncomfortable.



But... here it is. They ARE saying that they think he will be assassinated. They are using that as a reason to make people scared.
