Looks Awfully Close

Believe it or not, I was as fanatically behind Hillary before Obama said in November 2006 that he might run, and then I switched. (Switching To Obama) I mean, I like Hillary. I think she is great. And the symbolism of her being a woman is just fantastic. But I switched for Barack, and I am with him for good. It is just that this race is unfolding to be so amazing to watch. They are going neck and neck.

One thing that has been guaranteed is they are going to have to forge a unity ticket. One can not possibly ignore the other. It was the same way for JFK and Lyndon Johnson in 1960. Bobby Kennedy got offended. I just fought this guy so very hard. Now he is on the ticket?

Right now I am thinking Barack will win the nomination, but barely so. Good thing that they do have good chemistry. In 2004 Hillary fought bad weather to make an odd hour flight to Chicago to go root for Barack when he was running for the Senate.

This new kind of politics is really refreshing. It is okay for me to say my heartfelt good things about Hillary and be rooting for Barack.

Long Campaign Is Okay

That way we keep the media attention. McCain can stay ignored.
