I always hesitate to post about big political events. Lord knows the blogosphere is beyond full with endless chatter, especially as the political season gets increasingly more contested. This morning I read one report that Hillary’s chances are getting slimmer, and then saw that she was decidedly ahead in a Gallup poll. I don’t know if I have the stamina for this rollercoaster…
I can’t go without a mention of Obama’s race speech, though. I mean… wow. I had to pause the YouTube to catch my breath after the “I can no more disown him” part.
I think Stanklin said it best, though, after he read the speech:
he’s truly brilliant. and brave. and not full of shit. i can only hope nothing ridiculous happens between now and november. this is an amazing man. I mean, america is stupid, but even stupid people must see what’s going on.
now that the post-speech high has worn off, I’ve lost confidence in the stupid people.
The only reason Clinton hasn’t quit is because she’s working under some belief that she can swing the superdelegates. And why wouldn’t she be able to? She’ll win all the “big” states, be able to pretend she would’ve won MI and FL, do well enough in the remaining states and pull the experience card at the end (which, btw, makes no sense to anyone).
Then I’ll go back to being politically apathetic and regret the time and money I spent getting excited about a president worth a damn.
