The Case of the Spin Meisters

When BARACK OBAMA won Iowa, the Clinton campaign said it's not the number of states you win, it's "a contest for delegates."

When BARACK OBAMA won a significant lead in delegates, they said it's really about which states you win.

When BARACK OBAMA won South Carolina, they discounted the votes of African-Americans.

When BARACK OBAMA won predominantly white, rural states like Idaho, Utah, and Nebraska, they said those didn't count because they won't be competitive in the general election.

When BARACK OBAMA won in Washington State, Wisconsin, and Missouri -- general election battlegrounds where polls show Barack is a stronger candidate against John McCain -- the Clinton campaign attacked those voters as "latte-sipping" elitists.

And now that BARACK OBAMA has won more than twice as many states, the Clinton spin is that only certain states really count.

And with BARACK OBAMA's overwhelming victory in the Mississippi primary on Tuesday, his lead in earned delegates is now wider than it was on March 3rd, before the contests in Ohio and Texas.

But the facts are clear.

With all of the Clinton Spin Meisters' attempts to discount, distract, and distort, BARACK OBAMA has won more delegates, more states, and more votes.

Meanwhile, more than half of the votes that Senator Clinton has won so far have come from just five states. And in four of these five states, polls show that BARACK OBAMA would be a stronger general election candidate against McCain than Clinton.

BARACK OBAMA is ready to take on John McCain. But he needs to build operations in places like Pennsylvania, Indiana, North Carolina, and Oregon that will hold their primaries in April and May.
