Barack Obama beats "Team Billary" In Nebraska. Louisiana, Washington State and US Virgin Islands - By Big Numbers

AAPP: It's true, It's true. Barack Obama gave Billary/or Team billary (Hillary, Bill and their daughter) a big political spanking. Obama's wins proves without a doubt that he can beat Team Clinton. I guess Hillary will have to dig deep and get more personal loans.

As reported by The Times online UK Barack Obama trounced Hillary Clinton, his rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, in contests across America last night, beating her by margins of more than two to one in Washington state and Nebraska and winning the Louisiana primary by 53 per cent to 39 per cent, with over two-thirds of the votes counted.

The scale of his triumph sent shockwaves through Clinton’s campaign, even though it was braced for a poor night. Obama won the Nebraska caucuses by 68 to 32 per cent and Washington state by 68 to 31 per cent. He won 90 per cent of the vote in the US Virgin Islands.

The Illinois senator, 46, who hopes to become the first African-American president of the United States, said “There is no doubt that she has not generated the kind of grassroots enthusiasm that we have.”

Obama’s clean sweep will help him to catch up with Clinton in the race to obtain the 2025 delegates needed to secure his party’s nomination. He now heads into the delegate-rich “Potomac” primary in Maryland, Virginia and Washington DC on Tuesday with vital momentum. More HERE
