Well, after all the slinging from the right and the Reverend Wright, the media hacks and the Hillarites, Obama pushed the turbo engines and came out looking awfully electable after last night's key primary races in North Carolina and Indiana.
Like Ohio, which Hillary won only by losing more than half her initial 20 point lead, Mrs. Clinton's Indiana victory lap turned into a photo finish where her blonde bouffant was good for about 23,000 votes. Meanwhile sunny, high tech NC went to Barack by a margin of nearly 250,000.
This replicates my commentary from Super Tuesday - when Barack wins, it's big, when she wins it's small. Some pundits have described her so-called success as a backwards momentum - she gains sympathy votes when it looks like she'll be crushed but when she starts to win her arrogance and pandering turn people off and her support falls back again.
This will not be a brokered convention and Hillary will drop out. In the general election, Barack will win with well over300 electoral college votes.
Indeed, I wouldn't be surprised if he won in an FDR/LBJ/RR landslide of 400 or more.
