Today, my brother (who had sat with my Mom during her operation) joined my sister, step-sister and myself in my Mom’s hospital room and showed us a picture he had received in an e-mail. Â As he had trouble forwarding it from his hand-held device, I decided to google the e-mail’s subject and sure enough found that a blogger had covered the very issue.
When I saw this picture, I was laughing so hard I was crying. It even helped cheer my Mom up (if she could be more cheered than having three of her six kids with her).
Seems some clerk in the bakery of a Wal-mart took a phone-in order a bit too literally:
She’s leading in early New Hampshire returns and Michael Barone (on FoxNews right now) thinks she could hold her lead.
Moving this post to the top. Right now, it’s 7:23 PM on the West Coast, 10:23 on the East Coast and it looks like Ms. Hillary’s going to pull this one out. A narrow victory which might have seemed disappointing a week ago, now is a big win for the former First Lady. And guarantees that this race will go to SuperDuper Tuesday, if not the Democratic National Convention in Denver.
AP has just called the race for Hillary.
GP UPDATE: I was curious as to how the lefty bloggers were viewing Hillary’s win tonight…. here’s a flavor from John Aravosis at AmericaBlog: “If Hillary wins this, first, it’s a huge victory for her. But. And the but is important. The debate will be as to how Obama had a double-digit lead coming into today and suddenly lost in a matter of hours? We suspect there will be two schools of thought – either Hillary won because New Hampshire is racist, or she won because she cried. Either way, not a great message. Having said that, if she wins, she wins, and it’s a win she desperately needed, so it’s still a good thing.”
