Plouffe: Obama wins Super Tuesday by winning more states and more delegates

Campaign Manager David Plouffe...

By winning a majority of delegates and a majority of the states, Barack Obama won an important Super Tuesday victory over Senator Clinton in the closest thing we have to a national primary. From Colorado and Utah in the west to Georgia and Alabama in the south to Senator Clinton’s backyard in Connecticut, Obama showed that he can win the support of Americans of every race, gender, and political party in every region of the country. That’s why he’s on track to win Democratic nomination, and that’s why he’s the best candidate to defeat John McCain in November.

The next contests are right around the corner on Feb. 9, this Saturday, and I should say very cautiously that Barack Obama appears strong overall in the states and territory involved: Washington (97 delegates), Louisiana (67 delegates), Nebraska (31 delegates) and the Virgin Islands (9 delegates).

obama is all hype i hope he doesnt win and people voting for him dont by into the hype of change because everyone wants change and i dont believe he can get things done and if any of you believe that being able to speak well translates into getting things done then all of you obama supporters now will regret it 4 year laters when nothing gets done and we are in worse shape then we are now but have a great speaker that people like.

Obama may have won more states but he didn't win more delegates, not if you ask the DNC and Clinton has more superdelegates. If Obama thinks that the people that voted for him will not vote for Clinton he needs to think again because they will. I know atleast 100 people that will not vote for him if he is the nominee, and you can check the blogs the ones that voted for Clinton said that if Obama gets the nominee they will not vote or vote republican.
