The Democratic Tribes at War:

Exit polls have shown that the contest between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama has produced deep divisions among Democratic constituencies. It looks something like tribal warfare. Whites have voted, if you average the results from the states, 53 percent to 39 percent for Clinton; blacks, 80 percent to 17 percent for Obama; Latinos, 58 percent to 39 percent for Clinton; Asians, in California (the one primary state where they're numerous enough to gauge), 71 percent to 25 percent for Clinton.

The differences in voting by the young, overwhelmingly for Obama, and the elderly, overwhelmingly for Clinton, are as large as any I can remember in either a primary or general election. Upscale voters are heavily for Obama; downscale voters are heavily for Clinton.

As the contest has continued, increasing percentages of Clinton and Obama voters say they wouldn't vote for the other candidate against John McCain. Michael Barone

Obama's Dimestore 'Mein Kampf'

April 2, 2008

If characters from 'The Hills' were to emote about race, I imagine it would sound like B. Hussein Obama's autobiography, 'Dreams From My Father.'

Has anybody read this book? Inasmuch as the book reveals Obama to be a flabbergasting lunatic, I gather the answer is no. Obama is about to be our next president: You might want to take a peek. If only people had read 'Mein Kampf' ...

Nearly every page -- save the ones dedicated to cataloguing the mundane details of his life -- is bristling with anger at some imputed racist incident. The last time I heard this much race-baiting invective I was ... in my usual front-row pew, as I am every Sunday morning, at Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.

Hillary challenges Barack to bowl for delegates

Want real hope and change? Try Louisiana

Keep an eye on this guy.

I think he is the "next Reagan"

"There once was a man who campaigned on a message of hope and change. In his victory speech he promised never to succumb to a worldview in which “lobbyists begin to look larger and the people begin to look smaller.” In exchange, he asked voters to help him “defeat cynicism” by believing in him and themselves.

For schools, for government, for business, “change is not just on the way…Change begins tonight,” he proclaimed, his quick grin and young family breathing life back into a process gone sour, his unique life story bringing voters from unexpected backgrounds.

Governor Bobby Jindal waves to the crowd during his inauguration ceremonies in Baton Rouge, Louisiana January 14, 2008. Jindal is the first Indian-American elected Governor of a U.S. state.

Sound familiar? It should. You’ve heard the media tell the story a thousand times a day. They’re just telling it about the wrong guy.

These days, Bobby Jindal is working for change in a city that could eat the ethical foibles of Obama’s Chicago for breakfast, like so many shrimp upon a bed of grits. Elected governor of Louisiana in 2007, he replaced the politically deflated Kathleen Blanco, who did not see"

Superdelegates are Another Dysfunctional Liberal Fix

The most striking thing about the Democrat's superdelegate fiasco is how typical it is of liberalism. If modern liberalism -- the style of liberalism that has existed since FDR's New Deal -- is characterized by anything, it's the fixation on addressing "problems" with massive, grotesque, Rube Goldberg schemes that simply don't work.

Patriot Post

"What, really, is Mrs. Clinton doing? She is having the worst case of cognitive
dissonance in the history of modern politics. She cannot come up with a
credible, realistic path to the nomination. She can't trace the line from
'this moment's difficulties' to 'my triumphant end.' But she cannot admit
to herself that she can lose. Because Clintons don't lose. She can't figure
out how to win, and she can't accept the idea of not winning. She cannot
accept that this nobody from nowhere could have beaten her, quietly and
silently, every day. (She cannot accept that she still doesn't know how he
did it!) She is concussed. But she is a scrapper, a fighter, and she's doing
what she knows how to do: scrap and fight. Only harder." ---Peggy
