FORT WAYNE, INDIANA: On the eve of the big Indiana primary, Barack Obama rolled up his sleeves, slapped on roller blades, presented his daughters to the crowds and exhorted his supporters to vote for him, because "I am the only person who can guarantee America The Big O when I am elected President because that is when we will all come together".
Speaking in his usual platitudes Obama added another visionary statement to his usual political palaver. Tossing aside the "Audacity of Hope" line that he had earlier borrowed from his "mentor" - the now much-maligned Jeremiah Wright - Obama played safe by turning to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. saying the "fierce urgency of now" is the only reason why he is running for President and is not because he has any personal ambition. He also brought in the life struggles of his white grandparents in an attempt to "connect with whites".
The Senator seems to have have lost his oratorical firepower. Looking tired and worn out, he kept repeating himself, often struggling for words. Many voters sat stone-faced with arms crossed- still undecided.
Meanwhile CNN talking heads Donner und Blitzen and Jack Crappyface have already predicted that Obama will win both Indiana and North Carolina by double digit margins over Senator Clinton, pointing to the "incredible" Guam victory as a sign that the momentum has shifted in Obama's direction!
