I'm keeping my fingers & toes crossed that Obama takes an even more solid lead here. I would hope is taking the high road is the winning approach. Hillary and her supporters are getting awfully snarky.

Fran said...

NBC news said it's too close to call re Wisconsin, but Obama has the lead at this time.

Fran said...

They also said Hawaii would not be called till after Midnight to 1am Pacific time.

enigma4ever said...

enigma4ever said...

NBC is saying that Obama is the projected winner ??

Fran said...

CNN has declared Obama the Wisconsin winner. 5% counted 56% to 43 %-- here we go again- they are basing it on exit polls.
TWO major networks doing this-- CNN has it up as Obama wins. NBC was calling him the projected winner.

enigma4ever said...

All the Channels have cut away from Hill's Speech to Obama in Houston, Texas. ( HUGE crowd, Hill 's speech was suposed to be an hour ago...they were not supposed to be overlapping)

enigma4ever said...

Fran;

Fran said...

With 6% of the votes counted, CNN posted it as "McCain, Obama the winners in Wisconsin, CNN projects"

As more votes get counted the win gets even stronger! Awesome! I think Hillary will have a hard time getting back any momentum after this.

Let's hear it for America's dairyland.
They are saying the blue collar workers really came through in support for Obama. That was what Hillary had considered her solid base.

I have to say, I;ve not liked the negative twists of her camp, and I am glad the dirty tactics are not working.

A grave complaint has been received by the Central Election Monitoring Cell- PPP Islamabad from the above titled constituency. It is indeed sad that due to the non-partisanship of the Election Commission of Pakistan it has miserably failed to ensure a free, fair and transparent election. Mr. Manzoor Wassan, a PPP candidate from the aforementioned constituency is being constantly harassed and intimidated by the police officials in connivance with the district administration; both actively working against the PPP candidates/loyalists. The ‘Kings Party’ candidates are on a rampage and their henchmen have assaulted several workers of the said PPP candidate; notwithstanding causing severe injuries on several PPP workers. This is only to create panic at the polling stations so that the voters refrain from exercising their right of franchise as guaranteed by the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan.

This is the home home constituency of former chief minister Dr Arbab Ghulam Rahim, who had claimed that if he was defeated in Thar, he will quit politics. He arranged police and polling staff of his choice at polling stations.The complaints of PPP candidates were not entertained by the election commission.

No foriegn observer or monitor was present in the Tharparkar district. Even media also ignored this backward area and did not send any team. They left field open to Arbabs for rigging.

PPP polling agents were not allowed to sit at over one dozen polling stations including Gogasar, Goongio, Meghwar Muhla, while police disembarked a number of voters from the vehicles while they were on their way to cast vote in different parts of Tharparkar district. Earlier a large number of polling staff of different polling stations of taluka Chachro on Sunday late night refused to go on polling duties due to inadequate security arrangements.

A grave complaint has been received by the Central Election Monitoring Cell- PPP Islamabad from the above titled constituency. The aforereffered mentioned constituency is considered to be a PPP strong hold; however, it is quite distressing to enunciate the fact that 67 ballot papers were snatched from women at a polling station number 297. The concerned presiding officer Mr. Jalaldin Abdul Waheed is most certainly biased and working in the interest of the ‘Kings Party’ as no action whatsoever has been taken by him. More specifically, ballot papers 163401 to 163500 were issued for the national Assembly and 372801 to 372900 were issued for the Provincial Assembly and most startlingly only 33 votes had been cast. Upon interrogation, the said presiding officer casually whisked away the happening of the incident and instead verbally communicated that the Election Commission of Pakistan had been intimated; which in turn is a biased/non-neutral/non-partisan organization working under the auspices of Mr. Pervez Musharraf. Such grave mischief kindly be immediately dealt with; notwithstanding the fact that such illegal acts are not only violative of law but most certainly go against the very code of conduct set forth by the very Election Commission of Pakistan. Kindly take necessary remedial steps to ensure a free, fair, and transparent election.

Our candidate Mohabattualh has reported that MI and FC are letting the voters of Mohammad Khan of PML-Q only to cast their votes while his voters are not allowed access into the polling stations.

We had already complained that 20 million extra ballot papers had been printed and now it appears the same are being utilized for the worst rigging of elections.

Polling Day Rigging – PS- 114 Tarri Mir Wah Constituency- Incident Of Violence By MQM

A grave complaint has been received by the Central Election Monitoring Cell- PPP Islamabad from the above titled constituency. The afore-mentioned constituency is considered to be a PPP strong hold; however, it is quite distressing to vocalize the fact that the ballot papers are being snatched from the voters from both male and female polling stations and allegedly stamped and stuffed the ballot boxes in PML Q ‘s candidate favor. It is also complained that the security cover is absent as no police and rangers is seen around the Rasul Pur Polling station where all this is happening. Moreover, the PPP agent are tied up and severely beaten up. This type of violence is quite rampant in the aforementioned constituency which is completely violative of the law of the land and negates the very concept of a free, fair and transparent election. Such grave mischief kindly be immediately dealt with; notwithstanding the fact that such illegal acts are not only violative of law but most certainly go against the very code of conduct set forth by the very Election Commission of Pakistan. Kindly take necessary remedial steps to ensure a free, fair, and transparent election.

Poll day rigging/ Shikarpur

It has reliably be learnt that our provincial candidate Arsalan Khan visited PS-186 Kot Shahu, where he found two provincial assembly booklets and two National Assembly booklets lying on the ground. All these leaves were fully stamped in favour of Jatoi, the opposition candidate. The serial Nos of the two booklets were 280601-700 and from 279001-100. This was brought to the notice of RO Shikarpur and the RO also spoke to the presiding officer who admitted the same. Later Abid jatoi, Provincial Candidate eneterd the polling station with his goons and forcibly took away the booklets. This was followed by the arrival of rangers who closed the polling. This is for your reaction and record.

Balot Boxes snatched in NA- 202, Shikarpur, Sindh

Mr. Aftab Shaban Mirani, our canididate from NA-202 Shikarpur has reported that 300 NA and 300 Provincial Assembly ballot boxes are missing at polling station no 75 GPS, Hazar Khan Chandio, Thay Rais Wah. Reportedly the seal of the ballot bag was open and it was discovered at 6:45 am. The presiding officer Mr. Illyas Ajjana admitted handing over 6 books totaling 600 votes to an ASI who took the same away.

I am having email and blogger trouble- both are crashing on me- I will try to get back to you though.

Fran said...

WEll you are a brave soul to stay up so late for Hawaii results. I have to go to work tomorrow, early so I'm calling it a day.

A good one at that!

I think this trend will continue, and I'm happy for We the People.

I thought the US elections were a mess- Pakistan is a whole 'nother story-- just glanced at Renegade's list.

Whew!

Castro is passing the torch to his brother in Cuba. Bush won;t extend the Olive branch....
but ending the embargo in Cuba would be great for Cuba, and maybe even help the US as well. Time for us to be neighbors with our neighbors again.

I thing it will take regime change to have a leader who is not living in fear & terror.

I read an article earlier that for the 3rd time in a row, Hillary has failed to publicy acknowledge Obamas wins, as has been traditionally done.
So unlike Hillary, I am going to congratulate the Senator from Illinois, give him a big shout out of joy and do a happy dance!

Not only had the media been telling us Hillary was the winner since 2007, but I'd had heard troubling comments along the way, about race, the middle name, and trying to do word associations of Obama & Osama- baseless, indirect fearmongering mind games. But I found them very disturbing. I am just so glad to see his numbers coming in with flying colors. All of that garbage goes away (and it was foul garbage).
His campaign is on a positive track, and he is doing so well. I think this 10 state win trend will have a positive effect on Ohio & Texas. I also think Obama will handily win over McCain- especially with his new stance on pro-torture.

Clearly, the people are not responding to to the low down & dirty tricks campaign Hillary was running. I really appreciate that Obama has taken the high road. We really do need to turn this country around, and am really happy he is getting such a good response.

Laurence O'Donnell! That is who was making those scurrilous remarks about the possibility of ANYONE getting health care passed through Congress. I totally could not remember his name last night.

He does not believe it is possible, but like I explained last night with Obama in charge it can be done. But not with Hillary!

Now i have to go over and read Christopher's post before I get ready for work.

CNN says the total delegate, incl supers, is NOW (2/20/08):
Obama = 1315
Clinton = 1245

(note: since I last looked, Obama has had a net gain of 1 superdelegate & Clinton has a net loss of 1 super; I'm still working on the 2 uncommitted supers from my state)

you two take ccare and I look forward to hear everything. You might be interested to hear Ohio, the “Buckeye State”, received its nickname because of the many buckeye trees that once covered its hills and plains.
But that's only partly the reason. We have to go back to the feverish presidential campaign of 1840 for the rest of it.
William Henry Harrison, a Virginia-born Ohioan and military hero, was a candidate for the White House, but his opponents commented that he was better suited to sit in a log cabin and drink hard cider.
Some of Harrison's leading supporters, who were experts in promotional know-how, decided to turn into a positive reference what was supposed to be a negative one.
They dubbed him "the log cabin candidate," and chose as his campaign emblem a log cabin made of buckeye timbers, with a long string of buckeyes decorating its walls. Furthermore, in parades, his backers walked with buckeye canes and rolled whisky barrels.
The campaign gimmicks were successful. "Old Tippecanoe," as Harrison was often called, beat President Martin Van Buren in the latter's bid for re-election, and thereafter the buckeye was closely associated with the state of Ohio.
The name itself is of native origin. Because the markings on the nut resembled the eye of a buck, the Indians called it "hetuck" or "buckeye."

Omg....wonderful Patriot....

You have answered all of my Buckeye Questions...as a transplant from the West I have been mystified....and great that it has such history...

Thanks to everyone for the great comments and insights and support....

Funny the Media can not be bothered to recognize that a Great Candidate has arrived and that he is being embraced by the PEOPLE.....( I think I need to write MSNBC and Mr Matthews a letter....)
