Potomac Primary Tuesday 12.2.2008 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
Potomac Primary Tuesday Any questions about Virginia, see this post from (h/t ) . We’re looking at 83 pledged delegates. District of Columbia and Maryland have a total of 85 delegates. Obama has big, double digit leads in all states. It’s going to be a very good day for him. The turn out continues and is good for all of us.

Barack Obama will have a hard time ducking front-runner status after today, though that should not be confused with being the "winner," because again, this nomination battle is far from over. ...

" 60 Minutes" on Sunday night ran back-to-back interview segments with Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and while Steve Kroft's session with Obama provided a friendly forum in which Kroft admired how ???through twelve long months of mind-numbing, muscle-aching, adrenaline-fueled monotony and exhaustion, there has been barely a misstep??? by Obama, it was devoid of anything approaching the giddy girl talk about mainlining coffee and high school boys Katie Couric put into her segment with Clinton.
