Sono nervosa...


...for my candidate of choice. A lot of people have been sharing their politically inclined posts lately so I thought I might share my thoughts as well. As you can see I'm an Obama supporter....and for the first time in my life I am excited for the upcoming election. I'm excited for the possibilities of change. The word has been flaunted throughout the campaign but I think this country is so ready for it.

After the Texas and Ohio primaries on the 4th I'm really nervous that Hillary is going to take after Bill and play "comeback kid" in this election. I still have the caucus results to rely on (which I proudly participated in). Here in Texas we do things our own way...of course :-) As Alex puts it, "it requires a degree in Quantum Physics to even begin to understand the cluster F$%#& of variables that are thrown into the Texas voting system." To put it simply, if you vote in the Texas primaries (considered early voting and lasts for a few weeks) you're eligible to vote in the Caucus....which basically counts your vote twice. Woop! They say we will have to patient for the results. However, I've received a slew of emails from other Obama supporters stating that dozens and dozens of precincts were overwhelmingly leaning towards Obama.

In the end, I just don't think Hillary will have a chance against McCain and I want to put our best candidate forward to get the job done. I'm sure everything will change as the weeks progress...hopefully in Obama's favor!

this editorial from newsweek (http://www.newsweek.com/id/119010) should make you feel better minus the fact that it suggests while hillary doesn't have a chance to catch up with obama & that the longer she stays in the race she is only hurting the democratic by bashing obama along the way to what will be her eventual loss & possibly a BIGGER loss to the democratic party as a whole if she tears obama up so much that voters who would currently vote for obama switch to voting for mccain.

thanks for the article BK, it makes me feel a little better....although, i'll breathe easier once i see it happen:-)

also, i CANNOT believe obama wasn't even on the ballots in michigan and florida and she still states it as a win in her speeches......i mean COME ON! they definitely need to have a redo in those states!

a win is a win even if the other team doesn't show up - just like in any sport. she can claim michigan & florida in my opinion.

I think A-Town summed it up perfectly. Just like the War for Toledo.
