It's PRIMARY DAY...the people of West Virginia head to the polls today to vote for the democratic nominee. Most believe it is a slam dunk for Hilllary Clinton, the latest CNN political polls show her with almost a 40 point lead....but can a win convince the party and superdelegates that she is indeed the better candidate? She claims "you cannot win the general election without West Virginia." West Virginia is another state, like Pennsylvania and Ohio, that is filled with the white working class vote...a major voting block across the country that Clinton claims Obama cannot win.
BUT while Obama NOW leads in superdelegates, the outcome of West Virginia's primary Tuesday may best be foretold by where Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama plan to spend the day. Clinton is expected to be in Charleston, West Virginia, to celebrate what should be her large victory. Obama has no plans Tuesday night, but he is spending the late afternoon at a campaign event in Missouri. Missouri has already voted this primary season but is considered a swing state that Democrats and Republicans have in their sights this November...So Obama is already thinking about November and a match up with John McCain....
