Post Debate Perspective..Las Vegas II

Barack Obama stayed on message tonight explaining his Economic stimulus package and his consistent position on ending the Iraq War. I think he did a great job communicating his vision and plan to lead America and move the country forward.

The debate began with the race issue which has dominated the news lately and all three candidates condemned the tactics and reiterated the importance of respecting race and gender during the campaign.

Sen. Obama spoke clearly and with confidence and showed why he is the best candidate to solve issues bring people together and move this country forward in the 21 century. To read Sen. Obama\’s plan on tackling the issues tonight like energy, foreign policy, and education take a look at the Obama website http://www.barackobama.com

MICHIGAN PRIMARY…

BTW….CLINTON THE ONLY DEMOCRAT TO ACTIVELY CAMPAIGN IN THE MICHIGAN PRIMARY ONLY GOT 55% OF THE VOTE TO THE UNCOMMITTED WHICH GOT 40% OF THE VOTE. THATS OVER 225,000 MICHIGAN VOTERS THAT DIDN\’T HAVE A CANDIDATE TO VOTE FOR AND CHOSE TO VOTE AGAINST HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON.

From CNN

(CNN) — Hillary Clinton faced a grim statistic in Michigan tonight, despite her primary \”win\” there: results revealed that she may have reason to worry about her grasp on the African-American vote.

The Michigan primary vote was essentially meaningless: the national party stripped the state of its delegates because it held its contest too early in the election season, and Clinton was the only major Democratic contender whose name appeared on the ballot.

Even so, roughly 70 percent of Michigan’s African-American voters — a group that makes up a quarter of Michigan’s Democratic electorate — did not cast their votes for Clinton, choosing the “uncommitted” option instead. Yet these voters weren’t uncommitted at all: in fact, according to CNN exit polls, they overwhelmingly favored Barack Obama, whose name did not appear on the ballot.

Had Obama’s name been on the Michigan ballot, CNN exit polls show that he would have won an overwhelming 73 percent of the African-American vote, in contrast to 22 percent who say they would have voted for Clinton under those circumstances. If South Carolina’s large African-American community votes as Michigan’s, Hillary may not be feeling much ‘southern hospitality’ in that state.
