Pennsylvania is should-win state for Clinton

Filed under: Elections,Politics — Tranimal @ 2:48 pm

From Politico:

Pennsylvania, where the Democratic campaign heads on April 22 for a dramatic and possibly decisive showdown, is another must-win state for Hillary Rodham Clinton.

But it is also a should-win state.

I am beginning to see the immature and wish-washy backlash on Obama right now, after his “losses” in Ohio and Texas. Everyone was saying that everything is practically over for Hillary unless she wins these two states, which she did, but if we are to look at the PLURALITY of the number of states that Obama has won, he has won 12 straight states so far. Is that not a majority of states that overwhelmingly want him in office? Hillary is still in the race due to her wins in the most populous states.

I just find it interesting that the media is now dogging Obama after Tuesday’s results…. just to show that American mainstream media is just as shallow.

  1. I don’t think number of states is that big a deal personally; I mean, all the people are in just a few states in the U.S. pretty much. California has the combined population of hella states.

    What i heard is that Hillary needs to not only beat Barackstar but blow him out by huge margins, which is not looking likely. But that’s what I heard yesterday or sumthin…this crap changes all the time. =)

  2. You have to understand the nature of the political-media game. About all posts pre- Junior Super Tuesday wrote Hillary off as dead as Obama closed in in the polls, with talks of knock-outs, badly run campaigns, and spending $1200 at Dunkin Donuts. The media’s objective is to take stories and weave them into some narrative that is as provocative and sensational as they can get away with, so the audience won’t think to themselves, “Who cares?” It has less to do with the truth. What if Hillary had done well the first Super Tuesday? Then the $1200 at Dunkin Donuts would have been reported a measure of the campaigns gratitude to its supporters. It just goes to show the media just takes what’s first provocative, then “justifies” their reports by seeking stories that bolster them. As misleading and duplicitous as that is, it’s actually intelligent and necessary at a time when subscription to major news outlets is increasingly waning. They’re simply looking after their interests, even if at the cost of the truth and their readers. But they aren’t the ones being shallow.
