Something from my email....

Posted by Teresa at 8:11 PM
The following is an email I received from the Obama campaign and I'm not the only
one who has received it. I should probably inform people asking me for money I'm
a broke blogger, huh?:
Terry --

Our projections show the most likely outcome of yesterday's elections
will be that Hillary Clinton gained 187 delegates, and we gained 183.

That's a net gain of 4 delegates out of more than 370 delegates available
from all the states that voted.

For comparison, that's less than half our net gain of 9 delegates from the
District of Columbia alone. It's also less than our net gain of 8 from
Nebraska, or 12 from Washington State. And it's considerably less than
our net gain of 33 delegates from Georgia.

The task for the Clinton campaign yesterday was clear. In order to have
a plausible path to the nomination, they needed to score huge delegate
victories and cut into our lead.

They failed.

It's clear, though, that Senator Clinton wants to continue an increasingly
desperate, increasingly negative -- and increasingly expensive -- campaign
to tear us down.

That's her decision. But it's not stopping John McCain, who clinched the
Republican nomination last night, from going on the offensive. He's already
made news attacking Barack, and that will only become more frequent in
the coming days.

Right now, it's essential for every single supporter of Barack Obama to
step up and help fight this two-front battle. In the face of attacks from
Hillary Clinton and John McCain, we need to be ready to take them on.

The chatter among pundits may have gotten better for the Clinton campaign
after last night, but by failing to cut into our lead, the math -- and their
chances of winning -- got considerably worse.

Today, we still have a lead of more than 150 delegates, and there are only
611 pledged delegates left to win in the upcoming contests.

By a week from today, we will have competed in Wyoming and Mississippi.
Two more states and 45 more delegates will be off the table.

But if Senator Clinton wants to continue this, let's show that we're ready.

This nomination process is an opportunity to decide what our party needs
to stand for in this election.

We can either take on John McCain with a candidate who's already united
Republicans and Independents against us, or we can do it with a campaign
that's united Americans from all parties around a common purpose.

We can debate John McCain about who can clean up Washington by
nominating a candidate who's taken more money from lobbyists than he
has, or we can do it with a campaign that hasn't taken a dime of their money
because we've been funded by you.

We can present the American people with a candidate who stood
shoulder-to-shoulder with McCain on the worst foreign policy disaster
of our generation, and agrees with him that George Bush deserves the
benefit of the doubt on Iran, or we can nominate someone who opposed
the war in Iraq from the beginning and will not support a march to war
with Iran.

John McCain may have a long history of straight talk and independent
thinking, but he has made the decision in this campaign to offer four more
years of the very same policies that have failed us for the last eight.

We need a Democratic candidate who will present the starkest contrast
to those failed policies of the past.

And that candidate is Barack Obama.

Thank you,

Obama for America
