Why Clinton may have lost the nomination
"We didn’t put any resources in small states."Among other reasons. But it's a good vindication of the Dean/Obama concept of the "50 state strategy."
-- Clinton Finance Chair Hassan Nemazee, quoted by the New York Observer, on why Clinton might lose the Democratic nomination.
Clinton's people stayed largely on the sidelines during the 2004 election, and we ended up with four more years of Bush. During that four years Dean and the DNC have been busy redeveloping the party organization in every state possible. The Clinton camp saw Howard Dean as a threat, then turned it into self-fulfilling prophecy by putting down his highly successful leadership approach.
Democracy for America (DFA) spun off from the Dean campaign after the scream scene. DFA has been backing causes and candidates ever since. The Clinton campaign may be in righteous trouble. We'll see.

Maybe Cynthia Mckinney will win the Green Party nomination?
How utterly idiotic to think that you could coast on New York and California alone.
Arithmetic. The one who comes out of the primaries with the most delegates will get the superdelegates. She would need 60 percent wins in all of the rest of the states to catch him.
But..but..but..Eric said she had a lock on the nomination last year? What happened, could the high and mighty Mr. Kirk have been totally flat wrong? Makes you wonder what else Eric is flat wrong about.
Yes, I was flat wrong. Makes you wonder.
