  Obama’s inexperience does more than irritate me, it frightens me. The job of the U.S. President is not an entry-level position . . . --- Shannon de Rubens, a Hillary Clinton supporter

So, where are we? Y’all know what happened in Kentucky this week, right?  Once again, Ms. Hillary clobbered Mr. Obama.  She scored a 35-point win there after trashing Obama by 41-point margin in West Virginia last week.

 

So okay, Senator Obama won Oregon.  One for her and one for him.  That split decision left Mr. Obama with 1,949 delegates overall, out of 2,026 he needed to secure the nomination.  Ms. Hillary had 1,769. 

 

Three contests remain: on June 1st in Puerto Rico, which has 55 delegates.  Then two days later on June 3rd, in Montana, with 16 delegates and in South Dakota, with 15 … a total of 86 delegates. 

 

But there ain’t no way, Mr. Obama CAN win enough of these delegates to clinch the nomination because of the proportional way which Democrats award delegates.

 

If they count the delegates in Florida and Michigan, two states that Ms. Hillary clearly won, then she would come out as the winner. 

So, where are we?  If they count the delegates in Florida and Michigan, two states that Ms. Hillary clearly won, then she would come out as the winner.  But will they count the votes from these two states?  We’ll find out on May 31st.

 

They should count those votes!  They must count those votes!  Sure, these two states violated the rules by holding their primaries early … but all votes must be counted, no matter what!  In a campaign stop in Boca Raton, Florida, Ms. Hillary said:

 

“Now, I’ve heard some say that counting Florida and Michigan would be changing the rules.  I say that NOT counting Florida and Michigan is changing a central governing rule of this country – that whenever we can understand the clear intent of the voters, their votes should be counted.”

 

I agree.  All of America should be heard.

Majority of Americans have voted and the majority voted for Ms. Hillary.  Senator Obama merely won the caucuses, which are not the correct representation of the will of the voters.  Senator Hillary has won fair and square most of the primaries, all the big states and all the swing states and the battleground states.  She has received the most votes.  It’s simple as that.  Also, the superdelegates should listen hard to this:

 

“The states I’ve won total 300 electoral votes.  If we had the same rules as the Republicans, I would be nominee right now,” said Ms. Hillary.  “We have different rules, so what we’ve got to figure out is who can win 270 electoral votes.  My opponent has won states totaling 217 electoral votes.”

 

Keep talking, Ms. Hillary.  Keep fighting.  There are multitudes of us out here, who are behind you.  As long as you’re in, we gonna be fighting with you.  This fight is not over ‘til the fat lady sings.

 

ON SEN. EDWARD KENNEDY: So, it’s a cancerous brain tumor that had caused the seizure of Senator Kennedy.  See what happens when you endorse Mr. Obama?  Just kidding.  That’s a bad joke.

 

When I getting my wife and my two boys to the U.S. and the immigration people were “dilly-dallying” on their return, I wrote Senator Kennedy a letter.  He responded quickly.  He said he’ll look into the matter.  Sure enough, not long after that, my family was here with me.

I like Ted Kennedy.  I like the Kennedys.  They have done a lot of good things for this country, this great country that I have adopted and learned to love.  I think Ted Kennedy is one of America’s most-enduring-and-endearing political figures. 

 

When I was trying to get my wife and my two boys back here to the U.S. and the immigration people were “dilly-dallying” on their return, I wrote Senator Kennedy a letter.  He responded quickly.  He said he’ll look into the matter.  Sure enough, not long after that, my family was here with me.

 

I like his stand on immigration, health care, labor law, Vietnam, Iraq, and campaign finance and ethics laws.  I consider him a LION, who roars his liberal views, without fear.  I admire Sen. Ted Kennedy.  I admire the Kennedy family.  And I especially admire President John F. Kennedy and his Camelot-like administration.  It was the best of times in America. 

 

Ted Kennedy is the last son from his generation of a famed political family.  When his older brother, John F. Kennedy won the presidency in 1960, Ted Kennedy stepped into his Senate seat and has held that seat ever since.

 

It was said that the Kennedys is a “cursed” family.  The eldest son, Joseph, a bomber pilot and the one who was really being “groomed” to become president by the Kennedy patriarch, was killed in World War II airplane crash.  Then John was assassinated in Dallas in 1963.  Five years later, in 1968, Robert was also assassinated in California while campaigning for President.

 

Because Sen. Ted Kennedy has somehow touched my life, I fervently hope that the prognosis of “malignant brain tumor” is not as ominous as it sounds.  He’ll be in my prayers.

 

All seven seers shared a “sense of foreboding” and agreed that Mr. Obama’s “chances of actually taking office is kind of funky.”

 ASTROLOGY & PREDICTIONS: At the United Astrology Conference this week in Denver, Colorado, attended by hundreds of devotees from 44 countries, its seven top forecasters predicted that Mr. Obama will defeat Sen. John McCain and win the presidential general election.

 

But all seven also shared a “sense of foreboding” and agreed that Mr. Obama’s “chances of actually taking office is kind of funky.”  And that the stars looked “dicey” in this report.

 

“There are things that are going to happen in the next couple of months that could turn into something different than we think it is right now,” said Shelley Ackerman, a well-known New York City astrologer, who is a frequent guest on TV and radio shows.

 

Also, they said that “in the year 2009, President Hillary Clinton will change her mind about abortion and become pro life.”  Not only that.  “In the year 2010, after Hillary’s election, as prophesied in the Torah, the Bible and the Quran, as well as Nostradamus, World War III will erupt against the Arab Nation.” 

 

In their predictions, Hillary’s and Obama’s names were mentioned as prez.  So, who’s gonna be IT?  I think it’s all phooey.  What do y’all think?  JJ
