You have to admit it, but Hillary Clinton is tenacious. Having been written off twice during this campaign season, she's still in the race after winning 3 out of 4 primaries yesterday.
Clearly Obama made some errors last week that hurt him, even so when you remember how far behind he was just a couple of weeks ago in Texas and Ohio, you have to admit that Obama shows an impressive ability to mobilize people. Republicans, having secured their candidate can just watch the Democrats anihilate each other. This is unfortunate. Hillary turned the election to a greater degree of meanness that clearly worked in the elections yesterday.
One thing I want to get off my chest, is irritation at Hillary's claim to having foreign policy experience. There is no indication that Hillary had anything to do as first lady with foreign affairs other than meeting individuals as first lady. There is no indication that she attended National Security Council meetings, discussed foreign affairs with Bill's appointees or anything that would lead one to conclude that she was a foreign policy expert. In fact, her vote to authorize the War in Iraq showed more political astuteness than foreign policy astuteness.
I am supporting Obama because I believe that Hillary cannot win in the General Election. If she gains the nomination, I will pull for her, not that my vote in this reddest state will do any good. But Hillary like Bush, is not a uniter, but a divider. She seeks to get just enough support to gain power, not to try to unite people in a common cause of turning this country around.
We have a candidate in Obama who can win in November. But with the forestalled nomination process, I think both Democrats harm our nation's chances of electing a much needed Democrat to the Presidency of the United States.
