Obama: Saturday Night Sweeps!


WASHINGTON - Sen. Barack Obama swept the Louisiana primary and caucuses in Nebraska and Washington state Saturday night, slicing into Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's slender delegate lead in their historic race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The Illinois senator also won caucuses in the Virgin Islands, completing his best night of the campaign.

"Today, voters from the West Coast to the Gulf Coast to the heart of America stood up to say 'yes we can'" Obama told a cheering audience of Democrats at a party dinner in Richmond, Va.

He jabbed simultaneously at Clinton and Arizona Sen. John McCain, saying the election was a choice between debating the Republican nominee-in-waiting "about who has the most experience in Washington, or debating him about who's most likely to change Washington. Because that's a debate we can win."

Maine holds their caucuses tomorrow, Maryland, Virginia, DC and overseas Americans have their contests on Tuesday. Pundit speculation is that tomorrow and Tuesday chould go well for Obama as he has been dominating in the small states and at caucuses.

I think Obama is playing it smart by sticking with campaigning in the smaller states. It's not going to do Hillary a lot of good if she wins Texas but loses everything else.
