If Hillary Can Ask You to Pay Back Her Debt Then So Can I

Hillary Clinton went some $10-15 million into debt just to finance her own charade of a much-too-long campaign. Now, with the help of Democratic nominee Barack Obama, she hopes that those who already donated to either Obama or her campaign will pony up yet again to help her get out of her self-prescribed debt.

Well, aren’t we all in a little bit of debt these days? Me? I’m not looking for millions, but even a couple hundred would help me stay in the black. And what’s more, I’m not asking anyone to pay me on top of some publicly paid salary — I actually do all this blog stuff out of the kindness of my narcissistic little heart. But you can PayPal all your pennies to andy@netzoo.net or hook me up with something from my Amazon Wishlist. I’ll let you read it when I’m done if you’re nice. So there! I’ve got nerve too, Hillary!

Obama vs. Clinton: V-O Day is Here. Or is It?

barack obama to clinch delegates but will Hillary Clinton Concede?The AP made the grave mistake last night of putting words in the mouth of the never-say-die Clinton campaign. She’ll acknowledge his undeniable clinching of the delegate total, but that is not the same as conceding the race. Not even suspending her vacuous money pit of a campaign as Mitt Romney did. Even Clinton’s campaign staffers are mincing their words. There is no question that this campaign season, extended to the final day of primaries (the 1 million or so registered voters in South Dakota and Montana) on Clinton’s insistence that SHE is the chosen one, will end only on her terms and nobody else’s. But will it end? And when? And how?

10 delegates to nomination for ObamaAccording to The AP delegate count, the race is already over. Victory Obama. A sweeping wave of superdelegate endorsements have finally tipped the scales and even more will announce tonight. In essence, the number 32 at right is all but irrelevant. Eleven state governors initially supported Clinton and now, as the good ol AP writes, will they flip the switch just like that?

What exactly is the Clinton campaign thinking? She’s not really still thinking about an RFK-like June surprise, one must hope.

Video: The Empire Strikes Barack

Another great YouTube mashup to entertain as we look forward to another O-Day, in which Barack Obama will move closer to securing the democratic nomination (although Hillary Clinton will likely stay in the race for the next two weeks, regardless):
