Barack Obama won Wyoming. Solidly. Coming in at 59 percent to Clinton’s 40 percent. While I’m sure someone out of Hillary Clinton’s camp will remind me that Wyoming totally doesn’t count for many different reasons, especially considering this was a caucus, it doesn’t really matter.
He also won Texas, but I doubt the Big O will be getting any of that mojo back that Hillary was able to scuttle off with Tuesday.
But a win’s a win, no matter how you “spin” it. Every delegate closer is another delegate nearer to the nomination (and farther away from the opposition).
Speaking of the opposition, I don’t know what she was doing today. But Barack has tried to downplay all Hillary’s tag team talk.
From the Associated Press:
Clinton has hinted recently that if she wins the nomination she would consider sharing the ticket with Obama. But in an interview Friday in Wyoming with KTVQ-TV, a CBS affiliate based in., Obama shied away from that possibility.
“Well, you know, I think it’s premature. You won’t see me as a vice presidential candidate — you know, I’m running for president,” Obama told the television station. “We have won twice as many states as, and have a higher popular vote, and I think we can maintain our delegate count.
“What I am really focused on right now, because all that stuff is premature, is winning this nomination and changing the country. I think that’s what people here are concerned about.”
