With 42% of the precints reporting, the American media heavyweights felt comfortable enough to report the feisty Hillary Clinton as the winner in the Pennsylvania Democratic Primary.
This means the New York Senator is very much in the running to be chosen as the Democratic Presidential candidate over the charismatic Barack Obama of Illinois.
Washington Post has more here.
And a look at this map tells you how the score is between Clinton and Obama so far. (Not inclusive of the Pennsylvania results). No prizes for guessing who is leading, but the US is funny in terms of which electoral college counts more. Baffling.
Must say though that this will be a tight race…and it gets tighter as the weeks advance. Some zippers are gonna burst soon 🙂
Personally though, I don’t mind either of them at the helm.
It’s that GOP hawk that does the Bomb Iran jig that scares me. Yeah, the fact that John McCain was a Vietnam Vet makes it all the more unforgivable for him to take the stance he does.
Americans though, are a strange lot. Some (hopefully not that many) are so willfully insular that you get statements like this.
Who knows, they might decide they want neither a skirt nor a coloured in the White House and decide to choose McCain. In which case, America would have regressed.
But that is just the opinion of me, a humble Netizen. One, in an ocean of 75 million blogs (and growing).
