Rumor has it Obama is going nominate himself. Obama to Return to Iowa, Possibly to Claim Victory
Senator Barack Obama has chosen to spend Tuesday night not in Kentucky or Oregon, the two states that will be holding their primaries that day, or even at his home in Chicago. Instead, Mr. Obama’s staff announced on Saturday, he will be returning to Iowa, where he won the Democratic caucuses way back in January and has at least two good reasons to revisit now.
Much more than nostalgia seems to have motivated that decision. If things continue to go as well for Mr. Obama this week as they have so far this month, with a romp in North Carolina, a strong showing in Indiana and daily growth in his support among party superdelegates, he could actually end up with enough pledged delegates to proclaim, without fear of contradiction, that he is now the Democratic nominee for president.
Gee, and here I was thinking on had to get to at least 2025 delegates to win the Democratic nomination. I guess the new motto is "The hell with Democratic (or democratic) niceties. Do you know who I am?"
