Obama Takes More States Over Weekend

The Obama movement moves into the Potomac region after a triumphant weekend in Democratic caucuses and primaries in Maine, Louisiana, Nebraska, Washington and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Tuesday contests in Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia are also looking like Obama prizes. His momentum should carry his campaign well into Texas and Ohio in March, where the deciding battle for delegates is shaping up.

For us here in Texas it’s a strange position. In the past it was all over but the shouting when the Texas primary came around. The pig surprise is that even after so many states pushed up their primaries, that Texans votes will make a difference.

Personally, I am working for an Obama sweep, but I know Clinton will campaign hard here and her voice rings with Hispanic voters. My hope is that Obama will make some appearances here to try to sway a few more Latino votes.

Right now the Clinton camp is shaken, and has changed campaign managers. I suspect we will se some tougher tactics from her side soon.
