WHICH IS WHY McCAIN/OBAMA WOULD BE A WALKOVER:

Nevada tussle signals rancor for Dems (Ben Smith, Jan 19, 2008, Politico)

The vote was also a devastating crash for former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards, who had won substantial portions of the vote in Iowa and New Hampshire, but was headed toward winning less than 4 percent of the delegates in Nevada.

The vote also reflected the key demographic realities that are coming to define the primary contest, according to early exit polls and observations. Exit polls showed 65 percent of Hispanic voters supported Clinton, while 83 percent of the state’s smaller number of African American voters largely backed Obama.

That’s a trend that is likely to favor Obama in the next contest, on Jan. 26, in heavily African American South Carolina and in some large states, like New York. But it could bode well for Clinton in other upcoming states with large Hispanic populations, notably California.


The most pro-immigrant Republican vs. a black nominee is pretty much what Karl Rove dreams about.

Mormons Give Romney Big Vote in Nevada (AP, 1/19/08)

About a quarter of Nevada GOP voters were Mormon, and virtually all of them preferred Mitt Romney. Overall, about half of Romney's Nevada votes came from Mormons. Among non-Mormons, he had a slight lead over Ron Paul.

Looks like Lt. Arthur Branch is a good wing man.

Obama won South Carolina, and is trying to make race an issue in his quest for the White House.
He will do anything to win.
He plays dirty, and will not win.
New York will laugh at him, and people will get sick of him.
Super Tuesday will break him, but he will try to lie his way to some wins.
See through him, and vote for another candidate.
I am,
