- This contest is still very fluid. Though Senator Obama is ahead in delegates, it is quite likely that Hillary Clinton will surpass Obama in popular vote total before it's over.
I encourage Oregonians to stay with the race at least through the primary, and to compare and contrast these two candidates. Who has the best economic plans for those who need them the most, the best ideas for implementing these plans, the best chance of bringing our troops home from Iraq and taking care of our veterans? Who has the deepest and broadest electoral base across the country to ensure that John McCain is defeated? Many people have suffered tremendously under the Bush Administration - it is vitally important that we find a way to end that suffering soon. (Posted on May 14, 2008, 5:59 pm Mary Lou)
