Hillary Clinton - The Great Comeback Story











Will this be the headlines come Wednesday, March 5th? What an amazing time to be a political junkie in the Red State of Texas!! Never before did I even know that we caucused here in Texas and I've lived in this state all my life!! Never have I caucused. I only remember one time in my life that Presidential candidates even came to this State during their campaigns. I remember standing on a street in Beaumont, Texas to watch who I think was Nixon go by in a motorcade. Obviously, I am a Hillary Clinton supporter (ever since Edwards dropped out) and my hopes are that tonight we get to watch The Comeback Story develop. Being outspent something like 8:1, having the media against you until about one week ago, and being able to even come close to victory after the enormous butt kickings Hillary Clinton received in the last 11 primaries, this will truly be a night of celebration if she even comes close to winning Texas & Ohio, tightens the margin in Vermont and takes Rhode Island. I say she's in it to win it at that point! I predict that Clinton got the weekend bump and will take Texas & Ohio, tighten the margin in Vermont and take Rhode Island. Yes, I will be celebrating tonight.

I hate to say it, but we Democratic Texans have had our day in the sun. This will now become solid McCain country and we will take our familiar place at the back of the bus. It's not cynical, it's true.

Yes Steve, I agree. Wow, that was a short lived "day in the sun," you must be talking about Texas right before the primaries when the candidates were stumping thru Texas. I'm still grieving from my caucus experience and reporting it to the Tarrant County Dem office then calling back the next day with no record of my complaints to be found. I'm so disgusted with the Democratic Party. I think I am leaning more away from the party each and every day. I will always work hard for Hillary Clinton, but I think this is getting near my last Democratic vote. I'm simply sickened by so much in the Dem party, I can't "go there" anymore. Thanks for reading.

So, if Clinton and Obama both go into Texas and Obama leaves with more pledged delegates, who won Texas?

I wonder if the media will report the truth on that when it comes out...
