For Both sides, The Information is trickling in But this Much is certain….Oh hell nothing is certain at this point. For The Democrats, Senator Obama has gotten projected Victories in Illinois, Georgia, Alabama and Delaware. Senator Clinton is the Projected winner In New York, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. There are several states that are Very close. The total count for the states that are finished voting goes as follows: Senator Clinton is leading in 7 states, and Senator Obama is leading in 9 states.
On The Republican side, It is a Little more cut and dried, but not much. 8 states have been called On the Republican side. John McCain has Won 5 States, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Connecticut and Illinois. Mike Huckabee has 2 states so Far, West Virginia and Arkansas. Mitt Has One state, His Home state of Massachusetts. There are 15 states that are done at this point and the leads go like this. McCain Leading in 9 states, Mike Huckabee in 4 states, and Mitt Romney In two.
The early story was Mike Huckabee winning the First state to finish, That being West Virginia, but it was reported that A lot of people who were polling for McCain Dropped McCain to vote for Huckabee, and it was said, but not in any official way, that The McCain people did it to Take Delegates away from Mitt Romney. Apparently McCain knew he could not win the state, so his people decided to go Over to Huckabee to keep Romney from winning. I don’t know about that, sounds a bit funny to me, but I guess anything is possible. Huckabee looks to be the big winner in tonight’s republican run. We Knew McCain was going to do well, But Huckabee winning two states and looking like he could take four and maybe more, That is a fair bit more than anyone thought he could get. That amazes me, but, ya know…. They don’t call this presidential Selection process a Horse race for nothing.
Wow! Massachusetts has Just gone To Hillary. This despite the fact that Obama had The Kennedy’s behind him. Dayum! This Is One Tight race! Hillary is taking The Women’s Vote by and large, and Obama is Taking the Black vote, in some places by a 9-1 margin. Not entirely Unexpected. I am done with politics for now. The Number Crumnching will be done tomorrow, at least my number crunching. If you want Political coverage go to : http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/
One More Thing. Just for the Record. I Voted for Hillary Clinton and My Wife Voted for Barack Obama. She said she liked his message of Hope. Kewl. I need a Little more. Admittedly I Like his plan to reign in the Credit card Companies. I Hope that even If He Doesn’t win the Democratic Nomination, that His plan for The reigning them in is taken up By the Democratic party and put on their Platform. T’would be nice.
That’s about it for me… Wait, I didn’t do music or exercise stuff here….
Didn’t run or workout. Busy day. A Lot of running around. Food Shopping, going to the dentist with my wife, Voting, cleaning up around here with the wife. And I had to play guitar. Which I did, but Not much. and It looks like I won’t be getting much playing in. I am glued to the XM and cnn checking the results. It’s gonna be a Fun Night.
That’s It for me. Go Jam! Play a few notes for me, please! Thanks!
Today’s Nuggets: A good government implies two things; first, fidelity to the objects of the government; secondly, a knowledge of the means, by which those objects can be best attained. John Story
But with respect to future debt; would it not be wise and just for that nation to declare in the constitution they are forming that neither the legislature, nor the nation itself can validly contract more debt, than they may pay within their own age, or within the term of 19 years. Thomas Jefferson
