More Political Polls!

These are interesting. These will make you bite your nails, if that's something you do when you get nervous. Maybe you eat sugar when you're nervous. Maybe you go shopping! Those are all bad habits. Just try to have faith that it will all work out, even if you are nervous.

Here, we see how Obama has passed up Clinton and it looks promising for him.
I should say LOOKED promising for him, because guess what? He won Wisconsin!! Woot!

Here's a poll for Ohio. Obama's closing the a snail's pace. Hopefully he can do it in Ohio just like he's done it in the last 9 contests. CORRECTION: 10 Obama won Hawaii too! Aloha Obama!

Texas is looking great. I'm sure Obama will win it there.

And here we come to a screeching halt in Pennsylvania. Hopefully, this will turn around.

Those are the numbers.

Recently, there's been a discussion about words. I think words do matter and I think Obama's facility with them matters a lot. The way he weaves words has been what has given all sorts of people a sense of hope and inspiration. How can anything ever change and grow and improve without those good feelings as a base? Obama has admitted to "borrowing" words from his friend the governor of New Jersey--with his permission I might add. Here's a quote from December 21st about his own electability,

"But you know in the end, don’t vote your fears. I’m stealing this line from my buddy (Massachusetts Gov.) Deval Patrick who stole a whole bunch of lines from me when he ran for the governorship, but it’s the right one, don’t vote your fears, vote your aspirations. Vote what you believe."

Although there is criticism--read that as an extreme reach--coming from the Clinton camp of Obama's words, accusing Obama of plagiarism, it just is not true. Words do matter and when the words you speak are true you can get support for your ideas. When the words you speak are false, people will eventually catch on...
