Obama Wins Wyoming Primary

Posted on 3/11/2008 3:19:00 PM

Democrat Barack Obama has won the primary in the state of Wyoming, defeating rival and fellow-democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton. He won by a ratio of 61 percent to 38 percent. With this win, he has clearly established that he remains ahead in the delegates' race, especially after Clinton's thundering victory in the states of Ohio and Texas.

Obama's latest gain is of seven Wyoming delegates from the total of 12 that the state had to offer. With that, he has a total of 1,578 against Clinton's 1,468 and has won a total of 25 states, as against 16 by Clinton. His supporters in Wyoming believe that that he would end the war in Iraq by 2009.

Amidst the revelry, Obama has clearly rejected Clinton's proposal of being her running mate. He has warned voters against thinking they can get both candidates for the price of one by assuming Obama will accept the vice-presidential slot, if they select Clinton as president. "You have to make a choice in this election," he reminded. "You won't see me as a vice presidential candidate - you know, I'm running for president."

He did not shoot the idea down completely but his choice of position was clear. Especially since he is leading the delegates' race as of now. "We have won twice as many states as Senator Clinton, and have a higher popular vote, and I think we can maintain our delegate count."

The next primary for the Democrats is the Mississippi one.

Debate also rages about whether or not to hold fresh ballots in Florida and Michigan. These states violated party rules by holding the primaries before 5 February. Hence their delegates will be barred from participating at the party's August national convention. Clinton's spokespeople say that she is quite open to that idea.
