Understatement

Obama, in his victory speech: “Yes, there have been hurt feelings on both sides. Yes, both sides want their candidate to win very badly.”

Indeed, as Instapundit would say.
Marc Ambinder notes: “Nearly six in ten Obama supporters in Indiana say they would be dissatisfied if Clinton were the nominee — that’s (I believe) the high percentage of Obama supporters who have ever said that. In both IN and NC, two thirds of Clinton supporters say they’d be dissatisfied if Obama were the nominee — I believe that’s the highest number recorded for that question, too.”
He also notes the percentage of Clinton voters who say they’d choose McCain over Obama in a general election is approaching 40 percent in Indiana.
UPDATE: Hmmm. During the course of a seven-minute conversation with Cam Edwards, Obama’s lead in North Carolina shrunk from 20 percent to 16 percent.
ANOTHER UPDATE: 9:46 p.m. Eastern, Obama’s lead shrinks down to 14 percent, 56 percent to 42 percent.
YET ANOTHER UPDATE: Nearly three hours after the polls close, no results from any precincts in Lake County which includes Gary, Indiana, a likely Obama stronghold. How convenient.

Are We on the Verge of Civil War?

Americans keep dividing into two hostile camps. It seems the country is back to 1860 on the eve of the Civil War, rather than in 2018, during the greatest age of affluence, leisure, and freedom in the history of civilization. The ancient historian Thucydides called the civil discord that tore apart the ... Read More
