The petition demanding that Hillary Clinton release her tax returns has reached 500 signatures! We need a lot more signatures to get noticed by the press and convince Senator Clinton that she needs to release those returns today; not April or whenever she secures the nomination. Please email everyone you know and ask them to sign the petition.
I imagine these days Hillary will happily accept support from anyone, even from Rush Limbaugh and his followers. Rush Limbaugh and other right wing talk radio hosts have asked their audience to cross over and vote for Hillary so she can keep spending money attacking Barack. Looking at the exit polls, clearly Rush’s plan worked. Hillary won both those voters identifying themselves as very conservative and somewhat conservative.
So is this Tuesday going to be the promised Super Tuesday where the Democratic nominee is finally chosen? TX, OH, RI, and VT are voting today. If you live in one of these states and you are voting for Obama please remember to vote! Also, if you live in TX remember to vote in the primary and then show up and vote in the caucus. If you’re not voting for Obama then remember to vote on Wednesday. 😉
There are still undecided voters out there. Please help them out. Recommend the candidate you want them to vote for.
Poll: Who do you suggest people vote for?
UPDATE: Well, maybe it wasn’t a sweep but we still lead in delegates and it doesn’t look like that’s going to change. YES WE CAN!
The Republican smear machine is still working hard to try and attack Obama so they don’t have to face him in November. Currently Jack Kingston, right wing hack from Georgia, is going from show to show discussing Senator Obama’s decision to move away from displays of fake patriotism such as wearing a flag pin on his lapel. Jack Kingston appeared on Bill Maher’s show and also on MSNBC – without HIS flag lapel pin.
John Whitesides writes, “Democrat Hillary Clinton narrowly trails rival Barack Obama in Texas and the two are virtually tied in Ohio ahead of critical contests that could decide the fate of her presidential bid, according to a Reuters/C-SPAN/Houston Chronicle poll released on Sunday.” He continues, “Clinton, a New York senator and former first lady, has seen big poll leads disappear in both states over the last two weeks as Obama seized control of the Democratic race with his winning streak.” According to this article Obama is ahead in Texas 47 percent to 43 percent and they are virtually tied in Ohio with Obama at 46 percent to Clinton’s 47 percent.
CNN mentioned today that John McCain is taking the weekend off. Very odd for a presidential candidate. Especially for one that has important contests this coming Tuesday. The Kentucky Post reports, “Analysts say Ohio will be a critical proving ground for Senator John McCain this Tuesday.” It goes on to say, “Many families in the Tri-State have either sent loved ones to Iraq, or worse, lost those serving in the war.” So why isn’t John McCain in Ohio campaigning this weekend?
The Billboard Liberation Front strikes! The ACLU has the story. It looks like “truth in advertising” but AT&T wouldn’t be that honest. President Bush is still pushing to grant immunity to the telecom companies that allowed the government to listen in on U.S. citizens calls in violation of the law. He already ordered NSA to listen in on calls without court orders and the telecom companies allowed it despite the fact warantless wiretaps were unconstitutional. President Bush is pushing for immunity for the telecom companies.
