Hillary loses Emily Post’s vote

For the second week in a row, Hillary Clinton lost big to Barack Obama in a set of Tuesday night primaries. And, for the second week in a row, she pretended it never happened.

Speaking in Youngstown, Ohio on Tuesday night after losing to Obama in Wisconsin, Hillary made no mention of the primary – not acknowledging her rival’s victories or the thousands of her own supporters who voted for her in the Badger State.

Her snub followed a similar one the week before in Texas after she lost the ‘Potomac primaries.’
The Clinton campaign, seeming to realize Hillary was being cast as a sore loser, let reporters know that she did phone Obama later Tuesday night to congratulate him on his wins.

But Obama got his payback, taking the stage at his own rally Tuesday night in Houston while Hillary was still speaking. All the U.S. news networks cut away from Hillary and went straight to Obama, robbing her of precious free air time.
