Big primaries today in Ohio and Texas for Clinton and Obama. The polls show it to be a tight race in both states. Veteran Democratic strategist Garry South had this to say:
“The fact is, Barack Obama has been winning (earlier) states, not barely, but 2 to 1, 3 to 1. If she turns around and wins a close victory in Texas and Ohio, that doesn’t change the momentum of the race” or flip Clinton’s delegate count, in which South said she is “getting killed” by proportional delegate allocation.
“Look, I’m a world class spinner myself, I’ve had to spin myself in and out of all kinds of campaign situations over my 36 years in this business, but there comes a point where you can’t spin away the facts.”
Don’t you love it when people in politics describe their work as “in the business?” At least they are blatantly open with the fact that our political system is in fact, a big money business. It’s all in the game, sun, capitalist democracy at it’s finest!
By the way, Garry South’s last boss was former Cali Governor Gray Davis. How’d that go for you Garry? “Strategist” indeed.
