A Message from Obama

Barack Obama just released the following statement on the results last night:

Our projections show the most likely outcome of yesterday’s elections will be that Hillary Clinton gained 187 delegates, and we gained 183. That’s a net gain of 4 delegates out of more than 370 delegates available from all the states that voted.

For comparison, that’s less than half our net gain of 9 delegates from the District of Columbia alone. It’s also less than our net gain of 8 from Nebraska, or 12 from Washington State. And it’s considerably less than our net gain of 33 delegates from Georgia.

The task for the Clinton campaign yesterday was clear. In order to have a plausible path to the nomination, they needed to score huge delegate victories and cut into our lead.

They failed.

It’s clear, though, that Senator Clinton wants to continue an increasingly desperate, increasingly negative — and increasingly expensive — campaign to tear us down.

That’s her decision. But it’s not stopping John McCain, who clinched the Republican nomination last night, from going on the offensive. He’s already made news attacking Barack, and that will only become more frequent in the coming days.

Right now, it’s essential for every single supporter of Barack Obama to step up and help fight this two-front battle. In the face of attacks from Hillary Clinton and John McCain, we need to be ready to take them on.

    It should be clear what side Hilary is on. She is on her side. She does not care about this country. She makes the case that she wins the big states and she has won most of the big states but she can’t win in populated areas. That is not going to be good in the general elections.

    She has made this race about his race and about his heritage. His heritage is my heritage and that offends me.

    SMH…all that mud slinging and Hilary STILL losing…i LOVE it!!

  • Portia

    Hillary bores me and I’ve lost so much respect for her these last couple of months. If she wins the nomination I for one will be very upset. Also if she wins I hope she goes just as hard on McCain as she did on Obama. OBAMA 08!!!

    We don’t have to take Hillary on Barack does. It’s way past time for him to man up. He needs to fire that idiot who created that whole NAFTA scandal and its time for him to start coming hard at Hillary on the issues. He can call her dirty, but she isn’t talking about his wife or his drug use. She is killing him on the issues. He needs to stop being a nice guy.

  • sillyme

    I agree that it’s time for Hillary to drop out, but, if anything last night’s election shows that Obama is not as popular as he (and his party) thinks he is. If he can’t win states like California, Ohio, Texas in his own party’s primary, it will be tough for him to win an election. Despite the delegate count, the popular vote between the two is very close. They could go into the convention with him winning in delegates, but her winning the popular vote. And, Hillary has not made this race about race. America, or at least Democrats and the media, want their first black president; being African American is part of Barack’s appeal. 90% of African Americans would not be behind him if he had blonde hair and blue eyes or was Hispanic, and that’s a fact.

    Go get him Hillary! No niggers in the White House! The South will rise again!

    I hope that all the negative/racist attacks on Obama come back to haunt the Clintons. I’ve lost all respect for them. They’re pitt-bulls, will never stop until they destroy Obama. But hope is stronger than that. Obama WILL be the nominee. But Hillary will never, ever get my vote. I’ll vote for McCain before I even look at her!!!! Obama needs our support more than ever. Go to his web site and keep up with what’s going on!! He needs us! This one of the most important events in our lives!! We’ve got to pay attention to this!!

    I AM WATCHING THE CAFFERTY FILE RIGHT NOW ON CNN. AND EVERYBODY WRITING IN IS PISSED OFF THAT HILARY WON. PEOPLE KNOW HOW DANGEROUS IT IS TO HAVE TWO FAMILIES FIGHTING FOR POLITICAL CONTROL IN THE UNITED STATES( CLINTONS/BUSH). EVEN THOUGH CLINTON IS DECLARED THE WINNER IN THE PRIMARYS OBAMA WON THE CAUCUS. OBAMA ALSO WON THE MAJOR MTEROPOLITAN CITIES SO THAT IS WHY HE WON MORE DELEGATES IN TEXAS!!!! HOW CAN YOU CLINTON SUPPORTERS CALL THAT A VICTORY. AGAIN SHE ONLY WON BECAUSE THE RACIST HISPANICS WONT VOTE FOR A BLACK MAN. THE MAIN THING THAT CLINTON HAS AGAINST HER IS THAT AMERICANS BLACK OR WHITE DO NOT WANT THE POWER STRUGGLE FOR THE WHITE HOUS ETO CONTINUE BETWEEN THE BUSH AND CLINTON FAMILIES.

  • Obama supporter

    Ohio and Texas disappointed me yesterday….OBAMA NEEDS TO WIN!!!! GOOOO OBAMA GOOOO!!

  • Darth Paul

    Check yourself, Diva08. It was the white Texans and old guard democrats (BLACK folks included) that gave Hillary her edge. Don’t pin failure on “racist” Hispanics. The younger hispanics (and they outnumber the older ones) voted overwhelmingly for Obama.

  • NotoriousOne

    All of these negative attacks by Hillary and her supporters are just a warm-up to what Obama is going to face in the presidential election. It should only serve to solidify his armor and his platform. Shore up all those loose ends that Hillary is trying to make an issue so that they are non-issues when McCain tries to re-hash them in the general election. Obama’s election is inevitable.

    OBAMA ’08 & ’12

    YES WE CAN!! &

    YES WE WILL!

  • RJ

    Sounds like a sore loser to me. It’s time for Obama to drop. If he can’t take this heat, he definitely won’t be able to face the Republican machine. He needs to get real. This isn’t a race for class president; it’s for the President of the United States. He needs to stop whining and start telling folks what he’s about, what he’s done, and how he’ll address the country’s problems. So far, all he’s said is that he agrees with Clinton on 99% of the issues. That’s why folks were bothered that Clinton was always asked the tough questions first duing the debates; he got the easy way out.

    People need to really vote on his record and his ideas, instead of his RACE.

  • yes

    shes countin on that hispanic vote because they are a large population, but they aint stupid

  • NotoriousOne

    @ sillyme…

    I don’t think it’s JUST that Democrats want their first black president. Yes that might be ONE of the factors, but I think after 8 years of Bush the country IS ready for CHANGE! And for a lot of Democrats Obama is the face of change. While a lot of people might feel that Hillary in office will be “business/politics-as-usual” and as a country I don’t think we can afford to have that, even if it’s just for another 4 years. CHANGE needs to happen and it needs to happen now.

    I couldn’t help but comment — Barack and Michelle look so adorable in this pic. I mean — they seem like the greatest couple and remind me of a NORMAL family. Both of them seem to be really genuine people and I can’t wait until I see him on tv being inaugurated as the U.S’s first black president. HE WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY!

    BARACK 08′
