Three More States for Obama!!

February 22, 2008

3 more states abroad

Barack Obama has enjoyed another sweep, this time with 3 more states on Tuesday, February 19th and with Democrats Aboard, a votig bloc of Americans residing outside of the United States and its territories. Media reports have been buzzing over the fact that Obama has gone 11-0 ever since Super Tuesday, a streak that is now leaving a lot of doubts about the future of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Go take a look at our Deaf Eyes Map and you can see Obama sweeping across the country.

Very little notice has been given to this bloc known as Democrats Aboard. Its process is a mixutre of primary and caucus, over a period of one week, starting on February 5th in Indonesia and going around the globe and ending in the Americas on February 12th. Obama won 65% of the votes from Democrats Aboard. The voitng process of Democrats Aboard takes place in 3 phases — primary/caucus this month, then 3 regional caucus March 15 – April 11th, and then a global convention on April 12th.

This bloc will send 22 delegates, worth .5 vote each, to the Democratic National Convention. Out of these 22 delegates, 8 will be superdelegates who will comprise a total of 4 votes. You may ask about the logic behind this whole process, and we the DEAF DEMOCRATS editors are still researching on this matter!!!

Anyway, back to the news at hand, Hillary Clinton’s campaign staff have declared Texas and Ohio to be her last-stand states. If she doesn’t win them, then it may be all over for her… And already Obama and Republican John McCain have started trading barbs, starting with their wives about pride over our country. The nasty season has already BEGUN!!

  4. Tonight’s Debate (Feb. 26, 2008)

    Obama looked presidential throughout the debate tonight whereas Clinton looked unpresidential. Her eyes looked angry; her throat flushed red. She smirked occasionally. Perhaps you would like to visit the site below tomorrow to see if the
    scores have changed or not. As of now, the scores are as follows:
