Candidate results-watching parties tonight

For those who like to put the party in Democratic party primaries, here's where to go, starting around 7:30 p.m.:

Barack Obama folks are gathering at Cadillac Ranch, 38 Fountain Square. Mayor Mark Mallory - aka Superdelegate Mark - will be there, as will Sen. Eric Kearney.

Hillary Clinton fans are gathering at O'Bryon's Irish Pub, 1998 Madison Road in O'Bryonville

And if you're a zoo fan...

The Friends of the Zoo Campaign Committee is hosting an ELECTION NIGHT WATCH event at the Cincinnati Zoo from 7 - 11 p.m. tonight at the Harold C. Schott Education Center.

No matter how Clinton's supporters try to spin the results, the fact is that Senator Obama was more than 20 points behind one month ago in both Texas and Ohio, was more than ten points behind two weeks ago in both states, and now is neck-and-neck in both states. If Clinton was the one surging in those states, I am sure her supporters would be crowing about how great she is doing.

The fact is that the establishment candidate, gifted with tens of millions of dollars from corporations, immense publicity and media fawning, and universal name recognition will, no matter what happens today, still be losing to a once-unknown candidate whose race is a handicap, whose name elicits bigoted suspicion, who has to scrabble for every dollar of support he receives. That is the story.

There are many reasons why Clinton should not be the nominee. A lack of integrity, a consistently negative message ("the audacity of hopelessness, someone called it), a ridiculously embellished resume, a record of failure and bad judgment. Without being related to Bill Clinton, it's a wonder she should have been the frontrunner at all.

And what a contrast Senator Obama presents. Running with integrity, delivering a positive message while holding his supporters accountable to be positive and responsible, a solid resume with impressive legislative achievements in the U.S. Senate and in the Illinois Senate, a record of solid, reasoned judgment based on moral principles. The difference is vast, and as time progresses, only more people will know the story of, and the difference between, the two Democratic candidates and, eventually, between Senators Obama and McCain.

Obama has outspent Clinton 2-1 in Ohio. (Just look at the cincinnati.com homepage for an example). If he doesn't win here or in Texas, he's got problems.

I voted for Obama today, because we need to end this divisive primary and get down to the serious business of uniting the party. We need to UNITE against the Repugnicant slime machine that will soon be turning its twin hoses of smear and spin against our nominee.

We need to work hard and stay focused against the special interests, who are going to becoming increasinlgy more desperate as they see their hold on the White House and the American worker and taxpayer disappear.

The Repug-Nazi smear machine gave us a sneak preview when right-wing hate merchant Bill Cunningham took a break from fouling the public airwaves to smear Barack Obama in a public forum. Even the right-wing corporate media barons found this to be horrible an, allegedly, and rebuked the Republican smear artist.

Wink, wink, nudge, nudge. They are just going to becomemore anonmyous and move their smears into direct mail and the internet.

We need to get the Repugnicants OUT of the White House, OUT of Congress, OUT of the state capitol. We need to end this illegal war costing us trillions of dollars, and stop the bleeding of services beneficial to working American families. We need to take health care back from the insurance companies and return it to the people. We need to stop giving companies tax breaks for sending jobs overseas, and then using those tax breaks as a justicfication for cutting services the unemployed wrkers need to survive. We need to stop the shredding oof our Constitutional liberties. We need to make sure we rebuild New Orleans and prevent another Katrina. We need to stop giving tax breaks to the oil companies and tax breaks to corporations that buy SUVs.

Most of the Repugnicant politicans should end up in jail, but I'd settle for simply removing them from office.

Is there any way to move up the election?

Demcorats need to WIN in November, however long this primary takes.

Contrary to the media spin, Hillary is by far the more electable candidate in the states that matter.

1:02am- sounds like someone is a sore (and sleepy!) loser.

Kabaka Oprahbama is a sleeper candidate who wants to spring Socialism upon America. Good luck with that! We've seen this type before- can anyone say "racial reconciliation"?
