I'ma need y'all to come down off the ledge

Okay. I think you need to take a break. Seriously. All of y'all walking around whoa is me about Barack's loss last night.

And, he lost. Yeah, so. Even he didn't expect to win. I know y'all were hoping for the big upset, but the prudent look said it wouldn't happen.

Lookie, here. The fact is that there was no way he was going to win every state--let alone a state that has nearly the same demographic characteristics of Ohio. Two states that are more like each other than any other state in the union--except for other states in the Appalacia region. And nobody, including the Obama campaign thought that PA would go in the win column. The ideas was to close the gap--which they did reducing it by more than 13 points.

This right here is chess, not checkers and we have to be patient enough to get to the end--whatever it takes.

Lastly, so what he lost two in a row? After his 12 wins in a row--she won two in a row. Basically the same state--with a narrower win this time 'round.

She has branding and name recognition and whether we like it or not, alot of Americans just don't pay attention to the detail. If you expected her to lay down and die, or not big up this win like she just got the entire nation to vote for her and no one else, well, you might want to find out if you are coming down with something.

If we supporters of Obama give up, when the going gets tough. Well, Clinton will in fact, be right when she says we are a bunch of wimps. Won't she?

Now, go drink some tea, put in a movie and relax. We still got time.
