Figures don’t lie, and liars don’t figure. Maybe that’s why I have a hard time grasping the numbers behind the convention delegates we’re trying to win. With Mark Penn gone, I have to trust Howard ‘Bull Dog‘ Wolfson to explain them to me. That’s probably a mistake.
Howard is Communications Director. Basically, that means he’s in charge of campaign dirty tricks, like insinuating that Barack Obama is like Ken Starr. In reality, Howard just handles the ‘message’, whether it be a good one, or cleaning up a bad one.
But, numbers? Howard is not a numbers guy. He makes a lot of money helping me with my campaign, and he’s a big talker. His wife Terri handles all the money. Everyone knows that.
So, what am I to do? I keep reading in the papers that I’m falling behind Barack Obama in the delegate count, and falling behind in the SuperDelegate count. How can that be? I’ve won every big primary state so far. From California to Texas, from Ohio to New York to Florida. That’s Hillary country.
Somehow, with all those states, and after spending over $150-million, I’m still losing ground in the delegate count. How is that possible?
