New Hampshire Numbers
I have been Googling for numbers from New Hampshire. I favor Obama, and I’m curious what the GOP is up to. I finally found actual numbers, for the Democrats and and the Hephalumps:
With 96% of precincts reporting, Clinton beat Obama, 39%-36% — followed by Edwards at 17%, Richardson at 5%, and Kucinich at 1%.
With 96% of precincts reporting, McCain got 37% of the vote, Romney 32%, Huckabee 11%, Giuliani 9%, and Paul 8%.
So, my man Obama, arguably the underdog, is still giving Clinton a run for her money. And even if he doesn’t make it, I am content to vote for Clinton.
(I’d just like, after two decades, to put the Clinton-Bush dynasty behind us.)
And, I admire John McCain. If there’s going to be a Republican in the White House . . . my Googling turned up this gem from Tom DeLay:
“There’s nothing redeeming about John McCain.”
As I recall, Tom DeLay is a massive sleazeball. If a massive sleazeball finds nothing redeeming in you, that means that either you are a more massive sleazeball, or, perhaps a decent human being.
