Who Can Take Tomorrow, Dip It In a Dream?

From NBC/NJ's Athena Jones
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- As the West Virginia primary race came to a close Tuesday, Obama held a town hall with garment workers here, another sign he was shifting his focus to key general election battlegrounds.

Clinton was expected to win the West Virginia primary handily, and it appears she has.

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, an Obama supporter, introduced the Illinois senator at Thorngate Ltd., a men’s suit manufacturing plant with about 500 employees. The roughly 100 guests in attendance were invited by the campaign and the company.

Yesterday, in a speech he gave at a clothing manufacturer’s factory, Barack Obama proved he’s just as adept at making fantastic promises as anybody else running for high office. In only a few minutes, he promised a universal health care system that would reduce by $2,000 premiums for workers already enrolled in an insurance program. Then he promised a $1,000 income tax cut to middle-class workers. And then, he promised that Social Security recipients making $50,000 or less in income would no longer have to pay any taxes on their social security benefits.

I think that the Obama campaign should adopt as it’s song the old Sammy Davis, Jr. crowd pleaser, The Candy Man.

Oh, who can take tomorrow, dip it in a dream
Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream
The Candy Man, oh the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good

The Candy Man makes everything he bakes satisfying and delicious
Talk about your childhood wishes, you can even eat the dishes
