The Cult of Personality

This could turn out to be a three entry day for me.  There’s just that much to talk about.

 This is a really great article about a subject which has come up a lot today.  Jason Linkins looks at the exit polls from a number of sources to find that Clinton supporters are more likely to vote for McCain if Obama is the nominee than if the opposite were true.  In fact, 25% of Hillary voters would head over to McCain in a general election as opposed to only 10% of Obama supporters.

Not to give away the entire post, but he also points out that nearly half of Obama supporters going into last night had no problems with Hillary carrying on the fight even if she only won ONE of the big states.

In other words, Obama supporters aren’t zealots.

It’s a great article and you should check it out for yourself.

It also points to something I’m going to write about in my next blog with regards to Ohio…
