NBC calls Wisconsin for Obama. Sorry, Wisconsin….you’ve now joined the ranks of states that officially don’t matter. Clinton started speaking and again didn’t congratulate Obama. Gotta wonder if that’s why he took the stage early and cut her off. (on second thought, it was probably done to preempt her “major” speech planned for tonight)
Clinton has to win huge on Parade Day or it’s over for her.
Polls were predicting a +4% margin for Obama, but with 90% of the votes in, he’s got about a +17% lead. These are New Hampshire-like levels of poll wrongness.
Wisconsin (99% reporting), 74 delegates
Obama: 58% 42 delegates
Clinton: 41% 31 delegates
Hawaii (100% reporting), 20 delegates
Obama: 76% 14 delegates
Clinton: 24% 6 delegates
Random tangent. Today me and 200+ other people received an email from a major NJ Clinton fundraiser that attacked Obama by showing photos of Obama’s volunteers in front of a Che Guevara banner. That was apparently evidence of “how left/liberal Obama and his supporters are.” It’s a six-degrees-of-separation-type attack that smells of desperation, but it’s more silly than anything. I bet even Hillary would agree with that.
