So it is the morning after the Debate here in Cleveland, and Obama did a good job, he was Presidential. It was an odd debate, and to be honest 20 Debates is just too many and I think most of us are tired of the Debates and also of the Debate Process. It is so odd because if Obama had lost 11 in a row he would be told to gracefully concede for the Good of the Party and the Election.Yet the Media is still rooting for Hillary, they keep asking HOW can She Save IT, yet they are not acknowledging that Obama has run an AMAZING race.
I have to say that Hillary has not really spent much time in downtown Cleveland, and neither has Bill, there have been no Big Hill Rallies in Downtown Cleveland. She has held most of her events at Private Highschools here on the outskirts. I mention this because she spoke at the Debate at all the People that she has talked to , yet the truth is she has not taken time to talk to people in Downtown Cleveland.She has had very controlled visits to Plants in Youngstown and Toledo, but again very controlled.CSU was closed for the Event last night, and students could only attend if they won a ticket or volunteered.So access to her has been limited and controlled. The Obama events have been open to all and huge, because people are not turned away, he filled Halls in Dayton, Toledo, and Cinncinatti, he has made every effort to reach as many as possible.
Obama was very calm and collected and poised, and gracefully handled Hillary's attacks and disgruntlement. Obama I think consistantly shows that he is thoughtful and careful with his answers. He was Presidential. He has drawn huge crowds throughtout Ohio, throughout the State, people are listening to him and learning WHO he is. Obama also has a well organized Campaign here that is reaching millions and is focused on the Issues here. He is trying to Unite the Dems, but also unite us as People that have suffered for 7 years.Tuesday will show us WHO is really meant to be Our President.MSNBC has a phone text poll, as to WHO won the Debate. 97,000 people have voted in the MSNBC Poll, 70% for Obama and 22% for Hillary.
We had about a foot of snow last night and it is 15 degrees here with winds. And since it is bitter cold and the roads are worthless. I will be working the phone banks the next few days, but for today I am giving my hip a break.....and watching films with 6-6 and making alot of hot coco. Be safe out there......Namaste.
