Wisconsin Primary

The Great State of Wisconsin joins Hawaii and Washington state for te next round of primaries. Not quite as sexy as Super Tuesday or not as catchy as the Potomac Primaries, this is a very important primary contest. If Barack Obama can continue his winning streak, that will mean the Hillary Clinton will not have won a primary or caucus since Super Tuesday three weeks ago.

plezWorld is in Milwaukee, WI this week and the Obama Campaign is making a serious push to win the state. In the last 60 minutes, I have seen four Obama commercials and zero Clinton commercials. According to the state's governor, Clinton has only shown up in the state for two days while Obama has had a presence in the state since Super Tuesday.

Obama should win the contest and continue his momentum that began in South Carolina. If Clinton pulls out a win, it will be a pretty big upset and could pump new energy into her campaign. We'll see what happens.

I feel good about Obama's chances in WI. We're pulling for him from out here in the Northwest!!

It feels good to see how much he is winning by. His average victory margin is 33% in the past ten contests. The 17% point win in Wisconsin is the smallest victory that he's had during this winning streak...

I'm predicting that Hillary will concede nomination to Obama on March 5th (smile)...
