Women and the blue collar workers are two major blocs of voters up for grabs and the McCain campaign will begin moving in on them. The New York Times published an article on the woman bloc.
Cynthia Ubaldo, 44, a Clinton supporter in Columbus, Ohio, just switched her registration from Democratic to independent and donated $10 to Mr. McCain. The endorsement on Saturday is a mandatory, empty gesture, Ms. Ubaldo said.The Democratic National Committee chair Howard Dean is attempting to heal the wounds of sexism toward Mrs. Clinton.
“I’m sure Hillary’s cussing Obama out to Bill and Chelsea as we speak,” she said.
“Many of the most prominent people on TV behaved like middle schoolers” toward Mrs. Clinton said Dean.This problem will only get worse if Obama attempts to put a female on the ticket and that female is not Hillary.
“Hillary is not interchangeable,” Ms. Black added, warning Mr. Obama not to select, say, Gov. Kathleen Sebelius of Kansas as a gesture to please women.The other bloc of voters, blue collar workers, will be hard pressed under any circumstance to support Obama, considered by many as a metrosexual pretty boy with a thin resume' who cannot relate to their problems. And blue collar workers are less likely to fall into a daze with his topical fluff at the podium.
Need anymore be said about this elitist?
