Reader's Guide to the Presidential Primary News & Discussion Center

I'm starting this because I can't remember how far back the explanation on Texas delegate allocation was.

Page 40: March 4 results (OH, RI, TX, VT); Clinton's speech that implies McCain is a better choice than Obama; Huckabee steps aside

Page 41: "The democrats haven't shot themselves in the foot yet. It is more like they are standing there with a gun against the foot, finger on the trigger, saying "this is going to be awesome." -scholar; Also, Ron Paul = never say die!

Lol, some of the page titles are rather amusing.

I think my favorite is "Cindy and Michelle - Fight!"

But good job, it looks succinct and accurate, and I imagine it's time consuming. Thanks pooka.

Aw crap, I dissed someone for bringing up the oil money again, and apparently I didn't include it.

New updates for pp. 1-10, including a strangely prescient quote on Elliot Spitzer.

Maybe I'm super paranoid, but I wonder about the timing of the Spitzer Scandal, and who stood to gain, and I'm thinking of the Bear-Stearns bailout - which was a major shift in Federal Reserve Policy. Eh, I dunno. Better start putting that beer bottle on my doorknob at night.
