AP Says: North Carolina Governor to Endorse Clinton

Gov. Mike Easley will endorse Hillary Clinton for president, The Associated Press has learned.

Easley was expected to announce the endorsement Tuesday morning in Raleigh, the state capital, one week before North Carolina's primary on May 6, according to persons close to the governor and to Clinton.

Um, wasn't the media screaming at us only two weeks ago there was no possibility Clinton could win the nomination and that she immediately needed to withdraw??? What gives?

Oh, wright, never mind.

In any event, the closest Southern state to North Carolina, demographically and politically, is its neighboring state of Tennessee. Clinton won Tennessee.

Virginia is not apropos; it has a much more affluent and much younger populace. South Carolina is not germane; it has a much higher percentage of blacks and is more racially divided too.

So, does Clinton have a shot of winning North Carolina or at the minimum keeping the margin very close? Yep. You can bet your Ayers she does.

I still think Obama will win NC, but it won't be a blow out. The endorsement helps but the black community is coming out large for Obama in early voting. Churches are leaving the pews and marching to vote.

Obama will be the Nominee

"Hillary Clinton may still be nursing the hope that she'll somehow eke out a victory for the Democrat nomination. But, unless Barack Obama goes to jail or pulls a Spitzer, that's an impossibility."

Clearly, Mike Easley is a typical white person who is bitterly clinging to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like him.

LOL!

the Ayers thing-that's going to bite Obama in his, well-

John Ayers the brother of William-that also rushed to William's defense las week in the Chicago Suntimes donated multiple times to Obama's campaign-back before everyone was.

Also that gaffe about Obama claiming that Ayer's was an English professor?

Well Obama is partially right-I guess he knows him better than most because although he is an Education Specialist according to this blurb-at The University of Illinois website Ayers was the keynote speaker at this National Conference organized by the English Department-
Writing Conference at University of Illinois at Chicago

and teaching advanced honors seminars that make him sound like an English prof-W. Ayers & S. Edgerton, ED Composing One's Life: Autobiography and Pedagogy (2

What gives is you conflating two things. Easley's endorsement ≠ a possibility Clinton could win the nomination.

I hope Obama is the nominee-all the Soros donations in the world won't be able to save him.

Look at this pretty little Soros bundle-
