Hillary Wins, According To Fox

Based on minimal returns and whatever exit polling they have, Fox calls it for Hillary Clinton. But that is the beginning, not the end, of the spin wars. Juan Williams, looking at the exit polls showing Obama lost the white vote 60-40%, says, “Reverend Wright is not behind us.” Clearly, there will be room for Clinton to make her argument that Obama is not moving in the right direction to consolidate the party and present a challenge to John McCain. So far those key Reagan Democrats don’t seem to have been sold on Obama. And one other note: commentators note that Clinton is doing extremely well in Montgomery County with a large Jewish population. Could it be they care about Reverend Wright, Iran and Hamas? Who would have thought?
