Obama tops in projected delegate leads:

In a surprise twist after a chaotic Super Tuesday, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) passed Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) in network tallies of the number of delegates the candidates racked up last night. The Obama camp now projects topping Clinton by 13 delegates, 847 to 834. NBC News, which is projecting delegates based on the Democratic Party’s complex formula, figures Obama will wind up with 840 to 849 delegates, versus 829 to 838 for Clinton.

Campaign Manager David Plouffe said: “By winning a majority of delegates and a majority of the states, Barack Obama won an important Super Tuesday victory over Sen. Clinton in the closest thing we have to a national primary. From Colorado and Utah in the West to Georgia and Alabama in the South to Sen. Clinton’s backyard in Connecticut, Obama showed that he can win the support of Americans of every race, gender and political party in every region of the country. That’s why he’s on track to win Democratic nomination, and that’s why he’s the best candidate to defeat John McCain in November.”

We have MD, DC, Virginia, Louisiana, and Ohio coming up next, that shady Clinton is through, that’s real!!!!

    America is conservative by nature. Republicans take christians, fiscal conservatives, social conservatives all under their umbrella.

    I am confident in my support for McCain as such. The Republican tax cut does my pocket good as a high earning member of society. They best represent my interests.

    I won’t get into who I think is the better candidate because I like both Obama and Clinton for different reasons, but what I think matters is that people look at the issues and take a stand for the candidate they feel will best represent their interests and those of the United States.

    I just urge people to VOTE, but at the same time make an informed choice.

    It’s amazing how some black folks are still supporting the Clintons. Why can’t blacks be 100% for Obama, so what about looking at the issues, whie, latinos don’t look at the issues, they look at race. Yet, we are the only ones that want to say, I’m open-minded. That slave mentality is the reason why so many of our kids don’t have anything positive to look up to. If we as a people can stand up for O.J.Simpson, RKelly, then we are most certainly obligated to Barack Obama.

    This man is trying to change the world, and make it better. He has done alot for the community when noone supported him, and yet we have black folks running scared. Rather support a white woman than a brotha. Some blacks will never get out of that”massa says jump, I’s goin jump”, attitude. It’s sad, I pray I don’t raise my kids like that. This is a new day.

    Hillary is leading in delegates. It is so funny how this website only reports what Obama’s campaign says. Go to any media website and you will see that she has more delegates. Hillary won the big democratic states. Obama won a bunch of little red states, that will never support a dem in the general election. Hillary didn’t even compete in those states, because she knows this. CA, NY, NJ, OH,PA, MA, etc. These are the democratic strongholds. Obama couldn’t win them in the primary, so how can he win them in the general? Black votes will only take him so far. He needs to get Asian and Hispanic support as well as more white support. Stop misleading people.

    I’m hearing alot of black people are afraid people will turn against him when he is in the white house and expect him to clean up what was done in 8 years, in 1 year

  • http://www.abovethespotlight.com cutie pie

    iti s very clear that every race is threatned by black…especially black lol

  • Neekah

    Like they did to Cory Booker in Newark, NJ. Sharpe James ruined that city in decades, they expected Cory Booker to clean it up in less than a year and threw him to the wolves when those immigrants killed those 4 college bound black youths. And this was from our own black people!!! I hope this doesn’t happen to Obama.

    clearly you have not been following the campaign scrong black man but whatever people always learn the hard way

  • mr mr

    @ Bret…

    I agree that Hillary is the better POLITICIAN…she understands the game and is playing it to her best ability

    HOWEVER, Obama really showed ELECTABILITY last night…carrying red states, and more importantly districts that are predominently white, he showed that he is indeed electable…and I think we will see a swarm of support from the older generation who figured he had no chance from the beginning…

    He is showing people that he could, indeed, pull off a win…

    @Silly Blanks & Angel_Minded

    I don’t think you read the whole article. Nowhere does it say that Obama leads in TOTAL delegates.

    He does lead in PROJECTED delegates FOR 2/5 (and 2/5 alone) but not TOTAL (delegates + super delegates)…but we’re working on it.
