Did I Miss Something? A Clinton Win

Did I fall asleep and miss something?  The media keeps saying that Clinton won Pennsylvania and will be a boost to her nomination attempt.  OK, she won and won pretty darn good, but she only get a bit more finds, not an automatic nomination,–the math does not favor her–well real math not that new math that the Clinton camp uses.

Just looks like the media is determined to keep her in the race, of course she will not bitch about it.  And the media gives her every avenue to use her “new” math and make her appear to have a fighting chance–she does not, unless Obama has a complete meltdown.  I realize that she is hoping that will be handed to her on a silver platter.

My problem with the reporting is that all I saw and read was telling me she should win Pennsylvania by 7-12 points.  She won by 10, but all the reporting seem to indicate that she won by a landslide or that she somehow had pulled off another upset.

Look at MSNBC, they use Harold Ford, Jr as a panel person, he is a Clinton supporter but also beyond that he is the chairman of the DLC a group that is strongly behind Clinton.  I just thought that Obama had gained the lead and somehow lost it.  But all reports of the primary were as predicted, so where was the excitement?

Ok, I have a problem with the media reporting on this election cycle.  IMO, they are in the tank for Clinton.  To use Clinton supporters as neutral analysis is not giving the voter a good overall view of the campaign.

    Now it’s the math:

    A few months ago the Obama campaign was talking about transcendence. Now it’s talking about math. “Yes we can” has become “No she can’t.”

    This wasn’t the way things were supposed to play out.

    But the message that Democrats are ready to continue and build on a grand tradition doesn’t mesh well with claims to be bringing a “new politics” and rhetoric that places blame for our current state equally on both parties.

    And unless Democrats can get past this self-inflicted state of confusion, there’s a very good chance that they’ll snatch defeat from the jaws of victory this fall.

  1. won by 9.? but the media likes the two digit loss better. Cracks me up that the Clinton’s keep talking about the media abuse they get and yet….
