re-thinking their endorsement of Hillary and trying to bond with their young, affluent, college-educated readers.

As well as "curious," "engaged," "unusually intelligent," "unpredictable," "sophisticated," "skeptical," and "well educated."*

Clinton still pulled more votes from white women, but that advantage was neutralized by Obama's popularity among white men.

Which is to say: Obama's popularity among white men who voted in the Democratic primary. That's a very different thing than white men who vote in the general election,as poll after poll has shown.

Obama's just the latest hot rapper. Which reminds me; Alice Cooper for President.

OT

Very interesting news coming out that Ron Paul has internal polling showing him trailing significantly in the primary race for his House seat. Chris Peden is said to be 11 points up on Paul and Paul near in a panic.

If he had not paraded his nuttiness and his ragtag followers with their conspiracies and the ugly holocaust denials and racist views around, the folks in his district would likely have sent him back to congress again. Now its likely he will struggle to keep the cushy House seat.

There is some justice.

Were you thinking Welcome to my Nightmare as a theme song, or has Obama already locked that one up?

I was thinking "The King is in the Altogether" myself.

What percentages of Democratic primary voters are white men or rural voters? Seem like small parts of their constituency.

You would think big-city voters wouldn't be whistling past the graveyard wrt terrorism, or does appeasement just come naturally to most Dems?

I think we can blame Susan Estrich for the superdelegate nonsense.

What percentages of Democratic primary voters are white men

I dont know about elsewhere, but in Texas white men and Democrat almost does not go together. There are a fair amount in Austin, clustered around the University and the large amount of State government employees. But elsewhere, its pretty slim picking.

Slim Pickens wasn't pretty, but he may have been a Democrat.

Deear Mr. maguire: You write:

"So why the faux-mentum at the Times? I am reluctant to rule out bone-headedness, but let's also identify the possibility that the Times editors are re-thinking their endorsement of Hillary and trying to bond with their young, affluent, college-educated readers."

But, but, but, there's an iron wall between the editorial and news pages in newspapers. The TIMES, rowing back from an ill-considered editorial primary endorsement in its news pages? Say it ain't so!

Sincerely yours,
Gregory Koster
