One Hour Left!

There's still an hour to go before polls close in Wisconsin (9 p.m. ET) and The Fix, just like all of you, is waiting expectantly.

Just in case you are looking for some reading material to fill the time, here are a few suggestions:

* washingtonpost.com's lead story on the elections tonight -- authored by the Fix.

* Fix Friend -- and Washington Sketcher -- Dana Milbank on Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) and the plagiarism debate.

* New Yorker's Ryan Lizza on Sen. John McCain's (Ariz.) challenges -- and opportunities -- as he looks forward to rallying the party and challenging Democrats in the fall.

Hi Everyone-
So the last poster brought up a good point. How with 7% of the vote in are they calling the election? Do they go by exit polls or do precincts report tentative totals thoughout the day that doesn't get made official until polls close?
I am an Obama supporter (that word is supporter- not cultist as the MSM tries to brand us!)but I don't understand what they are reporting! Does anyone know when the Hawaii Caucus occurs and with the time change when we should get results here? Thanks!!

No matter who wins tonight I hope there are those who will consider (from President Clintons' staffers) the true character of Mrs. Clinton.

DEE DEE MYERS (President Clinton Press Secretary) had this to say about the woman who would be President. Search it for Yourself: PBS Clinton Years - Click on Interviews

Q: Were people afraid of her? Were people afraid to speak out against her?

A: Yeah. And I think because not only would she sort of humiliate you in front of your colleagues or whoever happened to be around. It wasn't like she did it every day. I found that she wasn't the most direct person. Although that was very direct, that to me was the exception rather than the rule. Hillary tended to kind of campaign against people behind their back, and that was certainly my experience. She was not happy with me, but she never confronted me. She never had a conversation with me about it. She would go call Leon in and yell at him and then he'd have to call me in and say, "Mrs. Clinton is really upset about X. You said Y, and she disagrees with that, and you know, she wants you to fix it," or whatever. As opposed to her picking up the phone and calling me. Sometimes it's appropriate, I think, to go through the chief of staff because it's the chain of command. Maybe she's talking to him about six things and one of them is me. But there were times when I thought she should have dealt with me directly and she didn't.

...I didn't respect that. If you have a problem with me or anybody else, it doesn't mean she shouldn't try achieve whatever outcome she wanted to achieve. But I think there is a certain grace and I just think it's a bit better politics and personnel management to be direct.

Fox just spilled the beans on the exit polls in Wisconsin. Hillary is toast.

Chris,

Only someone with a Ph.D. in regressive analysis can possibly understand all the plermutations and combinations that various scenarios have laid out. I get a headache every time I hear some expert explain why it will all be resolved soon or why it can't be resolved until the convention.
