Repeat after me...

O-BA-MA! O-BA-MA!

That is the sound of old man moe. The momentum has shifted my friends and Hillary is starting to take some serious damage here in the middle rounds. Fundraising questions, several lost primaries in a row, unless she can score a big win in Ohio or Texas, she is in trouble.

Now, that being said, this is still a very tight race and you should never count a Clinton out until the votes are counted. But if I were her campaign staff, I'd be looking for post convention work now...just in case.

The momentum that Obama is building is real and far reaching. Last Saturday while waiting for results in Louisiana, Nebraska, and Washington we were watching some coverage and Joe (my 5 year old) started asking me who these people were. I explained that they were running for President and he wanted to know their names. Well, they were showing McCain at the time, so I explained who he was. Then they showed Huckabee, then Hillary. Each time I told Joe who this person was, what party they were with, etc... Finally, they showed Barack Obama and I said “That is Barack Obama...” Joe interrupted me and said “Barack Obama? He is going to be the next President!” I was a bit surprised by this because we talk plenty of politics around the house, but I have never been a sure as he sounded. So I told him that Obama may well be the next President but that I wondered why he thought so. He said “That is what the kids on the bus say.”

Now, this is no contested primary, or even a straw poll. But, if my 5 year old is hearing this on the bus then there are plenty of households in my area that have decided that he will not only win the nomination, but will be the next President.

Interesting comment from Phil. I wonder if Obama will be able to close the big gap in Ohio. And I wonder what tricks the Clintons have up their sleeves. If they have a plan B now is the time to use it. PS. I'm an Obamaniac.

I don't like what his health care plans are and I've heard he's leaning anti-gay. Is that true? I voted for Hillary in our Super Tuesday Vote.
