    Let’s just hope that the clinton campaign does not manage to spin your home town as belonging to an unimportant contest in a state that will always be red. There has been too much of that going on as you can see from this quote from an email from David Plouffe of the Obama campaign:
    “….When we won Iowa, the Clinton campaign said it’s not the number of states you win, it’s “a contest for delegates.”
    When we won a significant lead in delegates, they said it’s really about which states you win.
    When we won South Carolina, they discounted the votes of African-Americans.
    When we won predominantly white, rural states like Idaho, Utah, and Nebraska, they said those didn’t count because they won’t be competitive in the general election.
    When we won in Washington State, Wisconsin, and Missouri — general election battlegrounds where polls show Barack is a stronger candidate against John McCain — the Clinton campaign attacked those voters as “latte-sipping” elitists.
    And now that we’ve won more than twice as many states, the Clinton spin is that only certain states really count…….”
