Warren's calling it for Obama

I tend to agree with Warren Kinsella's analysis... Clinton is finished.

Obama looks to beat her by a whopping 14% in North Carolina, and she's only ahead of him by a sliver, at 4% in Indiana.

All the analysts were saying that Clinton had to win Indiana by double digits in order to have a hope of hanging on.  The big question is, will she hang on, and hope the Super Delegates will hand her the Big Prize?

Stay tuned sports fans...

UPDATE, 10:39pm:  She's not backing out... listening to her speech live on CNN, and she's continuing on with her pursuit of the White House.  She's giving her victory speech right now in Indiana... wouldn't that be embarrassing if once all the polls are counted, she ends up behind!

The CNN Ticker reported on Rush Limbaugh’s "Operation Chaos", raising the question of whether or not his call to GOP supporters to vote for her in the primaries has had an effect on the outcome.  I was listening to Rush all week when I went down to Florida in March... he's encouraging Republicans to vote for Clinton just to keep her in the race.  Is it having an effect?  Who knows... but it did make for entertaining radio while in the States.

UPDATE, 10:59pm: Off to bed, but an interesting note... my wife noticed a comment on the Facebook page of a friend, but she didn't realize what it meant until I reminded her of this... the note said, "I participated in Operation Chaos".  And yes... the guy's a Republican.

UPDATE III: Wow... looks like I'm getting pounded with visits from CNN... I'm one of the blogs they're reporting as having linked to the story. I think some in the States reading it may have been mislead by my headline, thinking I was referring to Warren Buffet... no, I'm referring to Warren Kinsella, a political aide to former Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien, and author of the current political handbook "The War Room"... which in my opinion is a great overview of political and media strategy in our modern era. (and might as well have been the playbook from which the Ontario Liberal Party was reading from during their win last year)

    "Warren's calling it for Obama"

    Warren? ..... Warren who? .... Crap! You mean KINSELLA!!??


    You mean the late "Dino" Chretien's
    favourite weasally, little fart catcher?

    The guy who roams around men's rooms with a digital camera? THAT WARREN?

    HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA snort hmmph! snicker Ok Ok .

    Really, CC who cares? This guy isn't even the man to go to now on Canadian politics! Heck the Nat. Post eased him out because he no longer had his ear in the backroom meetings.

    So come on, if he isn't even the answer man for OUR politics who cares what he thinks about the internal party politics of ANOTHER COUNTRY?

    Word of advice to Warren --- Borrow Micheal J. Fox's DeLorean and set the time coordinates for 1999. Then you can actually find people who give a crap about your opinions. (Other then poor, desperate-for-friendship C.C. here)

    I think that you would be hard-pressed to find anyone that believes that Sen. Clinton has a good chance of winning the nomination. However, the debate comes because of the fact that the race is so close that it is also hard to say that Sen. Obama has it wrapped up. I believe that in the end we will have a Obama vs. McCain general election.

    When Clinton wins, it is because of Operation Chaos but for OBAMA it is because the republicans love him. You know I don't trust chicago politics. Indiana and NC are reporting just like in the caucus states, alot of hanky panky...

    President Obama?
    It is getting close to being a reality.
    It is not over yet, and we still have a chance to see another President Clinton, although it is a slim chance.
    One thing is for sure ...
    McCain has no chance.
    In fact, every Republican must be shaking in their paid for out of your pocket shoes.
    If you think the Republicans took a beating last time, just wait until November!
    The brooms are coming out again to sweep up the Republican mess.

    The Democrat Party is being damaged by this crazy woman. She knows she can't win but is trying to sabotage Obama's chances.

    She will jump ship and probably run as VP with McCain. Knowing that he is old, she will bide her time and wait for 2012 to take the spotlight.

    She only cares about herself, NOT the nation.

    So does this blog think McCain is going to get whipped by Obama? Cause basically everyone else does

    When Obama wins the nomination, I'm going to have a tough time deciding who I want to win.

    I've always liked McCain's maverick independent-mindedness
    (reminds me of me sort of) but am leery of his hawkish stances

    I definitely prefer Obama over Clinton but Obama's musings about re-opening NAFTA concern me. While I'm confident that Obama is a good man, I fear he will have a larger government than McCain.

    Regardless, IF Clinton wins, a big if, I'll definitely support McCain.

    There are no words I could use to desribe Hilary without getting barred from this site.
