I saw in the news that Sen. Obama won all the primaries and caucuses this weekend. I also saw that Hillary fired her campaign manager in disgust. She's losing the race for the White House. She was once the heavy favorite to win. Does anyone know what happened to her?

I think its just momentum. She has said or done anything special except having to loan herself 5 mil because she ran out of money. Obama beat her on Super Tuesday and has kept the momentum going as he is out earning her now too. Now after losing Louisiana, Nebraska, Washington, the Virgin Islands, and Maine all by 15+ points she has fired her camapign manager and hopes to win 1 of 3 primaries tomorrow (Virginia). Obama even beat her at the Grammys for his book The Audacity of Hope.

you are so right jormins, on top of that he is the youngest (46) and the most appeal to younger voters 18-29 years old and overwhelming response 3-1 over Hillary Clinton on Myspace and Facebook and the internet in general and his campaining money in january alone 31 million dollars versus Hillary 13.5 million (money talks;-)with him winning in a streak of 8-10 states in a row sofar and according to CNN politcs.com Hillary having 1148 Delegates (including super delegates) Obama having 1121 Delegates before the Maine Caucus came out (last night), the 18-29 market of voters is quadrupling ,amazing in 2000 this group was 8%, in 2004 this group represented 9% and today thank GOD 14% I love it ;-)

Even better those Super Delegates mean nothing unless its a brokered convention. Obama has actually won a lot more delegates than Hillary too. I saw a special on tv about Iowa and its ironic, Hillary will lose because she ignored young people. Until that point she was a shoe in to win and she never even tried to get young voters. Then Iowa happened and she started scrambling. All the political pundits thought Obama was crazy for actually thinking young voters would vote. I think these people don't realize many, many voters were just waiting for a real candidate. I can't remember the last time they put up a good candidate to run for President on either party.

Its a little bump in the road. Her expirience and her last name will pull her over the top at the end.

I have a feeling you're right. This is just a bump on the road and she's capable of coming from behind. I just hope they don't use any of their dirty tactics to take down Obama....they do have their version of Rove politics.

I really think the leaving of her campaign manager, was a big blow to her. Changing in mid-stream, does not seem like a good idea to me. I also wonder if she will win any more primaries? One has to wonder at this point, what is her future??

As I understand it her campaign manager stepped down to "spend more time with her small children" but is still active with the campaign in a lesser capacity. I think the answer is Barack Obama "happened"; nobody could have foreseen his popularity around the country. Annie

I love how they phrased that she "stepped down to spend more time...." LOL ha ha ha It's funny these guys are so expert at spinning things. I think if these guys spent more time on policy thinking instead of spinning things, we might actually get things done in Washington. And you're right Annie, the Obama Factor happened! Not even an institution in the Democratic party like Bill Clinton can save her.
