Fallows actually got a quote wrong. She said he's not a Muslim, and on repeated questions about it by Steve Kroft she said "I take him at his word" - which sent some Obama fans into a frenzy.

Democrats are not supposed to be aggressive about winning, and when they are, it seems to upset a lot of people.

Correction, she did say this.

STEVE KROFT: You don't believe that Senator Obama's a Muslim?

HILLARY CLINTON: Of course not. I mean that's, you know, that, there is no basis for that. You know, I take him on the basis of what he says, and, you know, there isn't any reason to doubt that.

KROFT: You said you take Sen. Obama at his word that he's not a Muslim...

CLINTON: Right, right..

KROFT: …you don't believe that he's a Muslim.

CLINTON: No! No! Why would I? There's nothing to base that on. As far as I know.

AJ, I'm getting the big clue that you like Hillary.

Like both of them a lot. Do not want to see riots at the convention.

It is looking more and more like the reason that Hillary is so close has more to do with republicans voting for her. Like Lieberman.

And from the link at the bottom: 700,000 of the 2,860,000 ballots cast in the Texas D-primary cast only a single vote for the presidential candidate and nothing for every other slot on the D-slate. In contrast with the R-primary, there were only 164,000 out of 1,380,000 votes cast where there was only a single vote for the presidential candidate and none for everyone else on the ballot.

The campaign is more like a game of rock-paper-scissors. ~Any~ republican can easily beat Hillary. However, the same cannot be said for Obama. Therefore, in order for the republicans to win in November, they must ensure that Hillary is the D-candidate.
