Obama Camp Admits if FL Counted, Hillary Would Be Queen of Earth
So, when Hillary uses her power as secretary of state to sell us to Cuba, don't be surprised.
Obama gained a lot of momentum thanks to his South Carolina victory, but would have almost certainly lost Florida three days later even if it were a real race, and Plouffe says, "We might not have been the nominee."
Of course Florida did count, if only half, on the Republican side, and John McCain's victory there propelled him into front-runner status to decide who would lose to either Obama or Clinton in November.
