Please remember, I’ve already come out as a supporter of Barack Obama. The following post is tongue-in-cheek humour viewing the nomination process.

Translation… please don’t flame.

I wish I were a better writer so I could flesh this out as a submission for the Onion.


It struck me today looking at some of the press on how the Clinton campaign is fairing sounded vaguely familiar. Looking up an old article with which I’ve borrowed liberally.

Senator Hillary Clinton Unwilling to Set Exit Strategy on Democratic Primary Conflict

Senator Hillary Clinton said Saturday that pulling out of the Democratic Primary now is not an option, rejecting calls by some super-delegates and many people asked in polls to start bringing the campaign to a close. “The Obama supporters and media are trying to get us to retreat. Their goal is to get us to leave before we have had a chance to show the democrats what a government that is elected and truly accountable to its citizens can do for its people,” Clinton said in her weekly radio address. “We will settle for nothing less than victory” , she said later.

Clinton’s latest recommendation includes a new “surge” approach. Increasing the potential number of winnable delegates thus assuring final victory in the theatre of operations. At this point she does not see reason to let up on the campaign for the democratic nomination for at least 9 to 18 months.
