Barack Campaign Superior By Far

The superiority of the Obama campaign was displayed when he started out by raising just as much money as Hillary. I think she was finished after Iowa but things just had to play out. It is clear that Obama had the delegate strategy down and understood his mission in this contest. Hillary ran a campaign of entitlement, one that said she was owed the White House because of what she went through as first lady. She believed she was going to play off her husbands popularity and that would translate into votes for her.

She also listened to the media who had her crowned as the next Democratic Nominee, she believed her own hype. She positioned herself in a delegate rich and popular state to gain leverage and national attention. But she wasn't listening to the people, only her own ambition. 

Obama had the pulse of the populous. Imagine if Obama was our president after 911. Remember the energy of the country. People were desperate for leadership, real leadership. We were desperate for the truth and peace. Instead we got lies and war and death. The media lied to us and politicians thought we were buying it. They thought we were completely fooled and ready to be mislead again. 

There were many lone voices crying out. Bill Clinton finally, when he took on Chris Wallace, Keith Olberman who understood what that moment meant for the public, the message it sent to the country and the media. Kucinich, Gravel, Ron Paul who ran if only to keep themselves and the war, corruption and greed in the discussion. Barack, who showed courage to not support the war from "day one". His voice rose above all and struck the right. He is the right person at the right time with the right message. A raw truth forcing us to face reality. The polls have been bearing it out for months, but the most important poll which is the votes cast has supported the theory.
