Senator Obama's total delegate count as of February 12, 2008 is 1,215 to Senator Clinton's 1, 190. This is the first time since the beginning of the campaign that Obama has taken the delegate lead. The prospective race in Texas, which will draw a heavy Hispanic voter count is according to Clinton's campaign, what they are depending on to pull through this vigorous horse race. Senator Clinton spoke in El Paso, Texas yesterday.


We are witnessing history; yes. Barack Obama introduces a fresh and inspiring approach to America's political culture; that's been established. Let us however not lose the zeal that he provokes in the event that he wins. The reality of revolution is something of story books, a tale that few of us believed we would ever witness. But with passion and activity all around us, with words like hope and movement thrown all about us, it is important to remember what it is all for. Hopefully we will carry this eagerness for change through the next four years. No matter who crosses the finish line first.

Sen. Obama graduated in the top 1% of his class at Harvard Law School with a major in Constitutional Law, and was elected President of the Harvard Law Review - a great honor.

Hillary graduated in the middle of her class and flunked her law exam TWICE (this is true, check it out !!)

Obama could have gotten a high paying prestigious job, but opted to work as a community organizer in the poor sections of Chicago helping blacks, hispanics and others to gain a political voice and get ahead.

Obama then worked for years as a Civil Rights lawyer representing a wide range of clients.

He also worked as a Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Chicago.

For her ENTIRE CAREER in Arkansas, Hillary worked as a CORPORATE LAWYER representing large companies in lawsuits against them.

Hillary then became First Lady when Bill won the election, and for 8 years the one “real” project she headed was Health Care Reform, in which she failed miserably.

Barack Obama served as State Senator of Illinois for 8 years, and he has been U.S. Senator for ther last 3 years. He has a total of 11 years in ELECTED PUBLIC OFFICE.

Hillary has a total of 6 years in ELECTED PUBLIC OFFICE.

You be the judge. Who’s background is more relevant ??
