Having had a day to digest yesterday's primary.posted by The Vidiot @ 7:37 PM Permalink Here are my reflections:
- Hillary was supposed to kick ass by like over 20 points and she didn't. She only won by 9.4 points. That would be spun as a loss if it were 2000 and it was Al Gore vs. GW Bush.
- Once again, the election was unverifiable. And once again, the exit polls didn't line up with the results. Will the American public ever "get it"?
- As Kos pointed out, Hillary had the weight of the Pennsylvania machine behind her. As annoying as that is, it does make a difference. (If anyone has the free time, it would be interesting to compare what state machines backed Obama and which ones backed Clinton and line them up with wins and losses.)
Overall, Toast said it best:
Hillary Clinton emerged from her hole in Pennsylvania yesterday, looked around, and saw her shadow of a chance at victory. Sorry, folks; looks like six more weeks of primary season.
