Clinton wins big in Puerto Rico (BEN SMITH & KENNETH P. VOGEL | 6/1/08, Politico)

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s decisive win in Puerto Rico demonstrated that her electoral coalition has at least temporarily survived the blow the Democratic Party dealt her campaign Saturday in denying it an infusion of delegates from Michigan.

The cable networks called the island territory for Clinton the instant polls closed at 3:00 p.m., indicating a landslide; exit polls showed her winning virtually every group, including young voters typically loyal to nomination rival Barack Obama.

Here you see why Senator Obama's too close identification with just the one cohort of the coalition party is so deadly going forward.

No surprise. Americans of African and mixed-African descent have made it quite clear that they welcome all the hyphenateds to join their grand "minority-majority," but also that they have no intention of sharing the racial spoils.

Where was Bill Richardson? He made such a splash endorsing Obama, and then disappeared.

Tough times ahead, with Hispanics/Latinos joining up with the white racist underclass.

I wonder if CNN will have an encounter show between Begala, Brazile, and Roland Martin. Would be great fun.

Watched a little bit of coverage of the primary today. You almost have to feel for the lefty MSM as they try to put out the meme that Obama is the Dem nominee and will stomp McCain in the fall as Hillary is stomping Obama in the late primaries as the delegates are openly feuding.
