If Obama Went 0-for-10…

There is an excellent (and for a change, non-demonizing-Hillary) objective column on the status of the nomination race in today’s Washington Post at

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/02/21/AR2008022102159_pf.html

with the title “If Obama Went 0-for-10 . . .”.

While I have been, and remain, a strong Hillary supporter (I find I agree with Samuelson’s recent column about the “delusion” factor), I have to admit his logic about the actual state and history of the campaigns is irrefutable.

I especially found this paragraph compelling: “But it’s stunning that the battle-tested Clinton machine allowed itself to be outsmarted and outhustled at the arcane science of winning delegates in caucuses. And it’s even more surprising that the campaign has been so careless with its money that it now is resigned to being outspent anywhere and everywhere.”

It does seem that Obama has simply out-campaigned Hillary. A shame!

Good column though…
