She didn't burst his bubble at all. I think we all know that we have the "crossover" voters to thank for her victories. And yet she still won by slim margins and is behind in the delegate count. Give it up already Mrs. Clinton... Go home!

As much as I want to see Hillary Clinton walk away defeated, I agree with those who had the courage to crossover to the Democratic party.

For selfish reasons I did not. If I died in the next year, histroy would register me as a Democrat. I couldn't deal with that.

Let's keep the Democratic race tight for the remainder of the primaries, and hopefully the Republicans can unite behind McCain.

Let's have neither Democratic candidate arriving at the Dem. Convention with enough delegates.
Let's hope and pray for a bitter fight at the convention, with Hillary winning the nomination and the Obama supporters leaving in disgust. Then, let's pray for a low voter turnout in November from the inner city.

Let's look forward to new leadership under President McCain.

Terrific cartoon, Jim!Q!
Thank you Ohio.
Ohio voters send their winners on to the White House and that's a fact, Jack.!!

Simple and eloquent (if you can call something without words eloquent). Fantastic cartoon.

I crossed over.I was torn about my decision to do so as I drove to my precinct...I had a queasy feeling about mind raced...could I actually vote for a DEM let alone a Clinton? GULP!It was then I realized I could never rob a bank or steal a car.

your cartoons in the past were much better when they weren't filled with such venom; they used to be more on the mark, if a newspaper can ever be, especially the Enquirer

Cincy deserves a better paper and a better university

hey Ohio, keep the polls honest; what does bush's endorsement mean -"favor" at the OH and FL polls

need to ammend the constitution for fair voting practices, especially in "key" states, whether or not that power is true or mistaken or abused

what's CLEAR is that Ohio DOES NOT WANT Obama, which you consistently, ignorantly, secretly and sneakily deny, you and the Enquirer; you willfully misrepresent the state of Ohio; TYPICAL crooked newspaper and news reporting

and your cartoons are stupid

Jim, thank you for all of your cartoons, every one of your sketches would make sense. Thank you for standing up for what you believe and giving us your opinion. I am educated enough to realize that you have your opinion and I have mine. I wish some of your critics had the mental capacity to realize that as well. Thank you for making thought provoking art. You are certainly doing your job, making cartoons that get people talking.

So now that you poke (pun intended) fun at Obama, you're still to much for Obama.

9:46 - You consider this cartoon venomous!?! Might want to put some lotion on that thin skin.

10:07 - Cincinnati is not the rest of Ohio. The lack of corn fields should be a dead giveaway. :)

The needs and motivations of urban centers like Cuyahoga and Hamilton are fundamentally different than those of Ashtabula or Coshocton. How many people in Clifton worry about farm subsidies?

8:26 :

I thought you were serious for a moment, until those last lines.

Thank you for reminding Democrats yet again why this election is so critical, and their every vote so important . . .

Hillary didn't burst the Obama bubble, the voters did. Or maybe it's the voters who burst the media's bubble of Obama infatuation. The commentators on tv looked downright sullen after they had to report on Hillary's big win in Ohio, and I think this cartoonist is sullen, too, we just can't see him.

your cartoon suggests that obama has an undeserved arrogance and smugness. i disagree. while i voted for edwards, the only candidate who has promised real change, the only reason clinton won was crossover voting and racism.

at 3/5/08, 1:58 PM Anonymous Anonymous said...

Oh... my... gosh... did I just read that Obama lost because of racism?!?!? ...only in Cincinnati... where the "minorities" are the true racists.

I'm a white guy, who (if I voted Democrat), would vote for Obama 10 times over Hillary. Oh, no... it must mean I'm sexist... ahhhh!!!

P.S. I don't think Obama looks arrogant or smug in the cartoon, but rather content and comfortable, which, heading into yesterday's primary, he had reason to be.

Clinton sees new race; Obama talks tough By DAVID ESPO, AP Special Correspondent
Thu Mar 6, 1:37 AM ET

WASHINGTON - Hillary Rodham Clinton declared Wednesday that her primary victories in Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island had reordered the Democratic presidential race in her favor. A resilient Barack Obama countered with fresh pledges of support from superdelegates and said his lead remained intact.

One day after his worst showing in a month, Obama blamed negative attacks by the former first lady for his defeats and quickly made good on a promise to sharpen his criticism of her.
