Obama widens his lead

February 20, 2008

Last night, the call fo change was heard and embraced yet again as Sen. Obama widened his delegate lead over Sen. Clinton by decisive victories in Wisconsin and Hawaii.

Wisconsin:

Obama: 58% of the popular vote and 38 delegates

Clinton: 41% of the popular vote and 27 delegates

Hawaii:

Obama: 76% of the popular vote, no delegate count yet

Clinton: 24% of the popular vote, no delegate count

The speeches have started to use stronger wording, with Obama taking a shot at the  quagmire (giggity) in Washington, D.C:

It is going to require more than rousing speeches. … It is going to require something more, because the problem that we face in America today is not the lack of good ideas. It’s that Washington has become a place where good ideas go to die

And McCain taking a shot at Obama:

I will fight every moment of every day in this campaign to make sure Americans are not deceived by an eloquent but empty call for change

Absent from McCain’s speech was any mention of Senator Clinton. It seems he knows who will be his opponent when the conventions are said and done.

Onr thing I just thought of: where was Huckabee last night?
