    Obama won. He won on superdelegates, he won on pledged delegates, he won on the popular vote and he’s won the nomination. I’d argue he’s the stronger candidate.

    He’s also the favorite to be the next president. If you don’t think the favorite is viable then you’re not using the word right.

  3. Phil,

    Im talking relative to Hillary and relatively to the relative strenght of the Dems and GOP this time around.

    Hillary would have had it easier against McCain. And, generally, the Dems would have had it easier against McCain with a candidate that was not Obama. Still, it will be great if Obama wins. And I do accept that Obama starts the contest with McCain as favourite. What my numbers show is, i think, that Obama is putting the presidency in play, why in this political climate the presidency should have been locked for Dems. that’s my thesis, and i think the numbers do suggest that.

  4. This whole thing confuses me. If she is ahead in all of these things, then why is the press, saying it’s all over and Obama is the presumptive candidate? The Dems and their weird rules.

  5. Hilary was probably the stronger candidate (We will never know), except that the U.S. doesn’t have laws against calling her a bitch and a cunt. We DO have laws against slurring Obama with the “N” word. Notice I can’t spell out the “N” word, but I can write bitch and cunt with impunity. Regarding women and blacks, this is the civil rights status in the U.S. It’s more acceptable to be a black MAN than to be a woman of any color.

  6. Качество друзей тоже надо учитывать. Дональд Трамп, например, на двадцатку потянет.
