Oregon will slam the door shut tonight

This could be one of the final chances for Senator Clinton to get out in front of an audience of supporters and give a victory speech, as the fiasco that the Democratic Party calls Primary season, winds its way towards Kentucky and Oregon. And yes, Senator Clinton can still finagle a way to sneak into the presidential nomination, but unless you really count Puerto Rico as a contest, Kentucky could be her last confetti and balloon moment until the whole carnival gets to Denver.

The reason for this is after probably getting a comfortable 10 to 15 point win in the Bluegrass state, the voters of Oregon will start the "Na Na Na" singing to Senator Clinton, giving Senator Obama a comfortable win in one of the liberalist states on the map. And while she will win Puerto Rico, he will end up getting Montana and Idaho, or Montana and a Dakota, or whatever two Big Sky states that are left to vote on June 5th and the math will still show her behind. Plus really, when was the last time Senator Clinton had 80,000 people showing up to see her at a rally?



Though she did get a tour of Makers Mark, which is something I would sure like to do someday.

On a side note, if this was a discussion about college football instead of politics, a game between the University of Kentucky and either of the big time football schools in Oregon would be an exciting one.

So for someone not in the know and not watching much TV at all when is it finally decided?

And of course the Blue Jays! I support my home town team no matter what!! I'm no bandwagon jumper only when the going gets good. :)

I am genuinely saddened by the news about Ted Kennedy, which is why I will resist using Hillary's maudlin references to him as a drinking game tonight.

I am just so done with her. I don't want her as Obama's running mate. Jim Webb, Joe Biden -- they bring gravitas and, well, nads to the ticket.

You're right, though, speaking before those Makers Mark barrels was great theater.

Joe Biden would be great if he could just keep his mouth shut. He yaps. Remember that "clean" statement he made about Obama? Not so good.
