Barack Obama has been pursuing a brilliant strategy for the primaries, but it may hide a weakness in the main election. According to this article, Obama has been picking up many of his wins in states that usually go Republican. That means they have fewer Democrats to vote in the primaries, but their delegates are easier for Obama to harvest. Meanwhile Hillary Clinton is getting the big states, but Obama remains ahead.
This MIGHT mean that Obama’s strength is in the states that will go Republican anyway, which heralds well for John McCain.This is the argument the Clintons are making with the superdelegates. Do you think it holds water?
