So, here we are. Two years of speculation about to be put to the test. Super Tuesday will be under way by the time most of you read this post.
In the end I voted today knowing I voiced my support for a candidate with vision, a candidate with conviction, a candidate who will do what it takes for the benefit of this country. Any vote today is a vote that plays a role in making history. I'm proud to say, I VOTED FOR HILLARY CLINTON.
Before we can be in a position to fix what's wrong with our country, we must first be in a position to talk with each other. Conspiracy theory is fine and well, but we can't help our country if we can't talk about it .
Don's fear is well founded. If Hillary wins her party's nomination, a lot of disappointed 20-somethings will go back to their boxes and bail on the general in November. Some vote with their wallets, but most cast their ballot in an optimistic mood. We are more pessimistic when we go to the general elections because we don't have so many choices to day dream about. In November, most of us will vote with our wallets.
Unless and until we experience another terror attack, Americans will not be quite so concerned about national security. Because economic issues are now much more pressing, we will be swayed by the economy. Let's also be aware of the fact that we haven't seen such a hard-to-call race in a very long time.

O.K. folks....Here is my prediction for the future presidency of the United States of America! DRUMROLL PLEASE!! Hillary is "elected" barely squeaking by whatever dupe is picked to run on the Republican ticket- with Ron Paul on an independant ticket being used as the "spoiler" (remember Ralph Nader and Ross Perot anyone?) dividing the Republican vote making the election of her despised murdering lying scumbag a#$ seem plausable. W "retires" to enjoy his old age in a drunken drug induced stupor after doing his final part in the "Grand Illusion" by keeping the U.S. economy barely afloat by carpet bombing the nation with $100 bills, the economy will finally crash in flaming ruins during Billarys first year in office. The yowls from the media shills and Neocon players will be heard far and wide as they tell the nation what fools they were to trust the nation to a "Liberal". As the Great Depression of '09 grips the world Congress continues to do its "job" by talking about talking. Civil unrest sweeps the nation causing a "tearful" Hillary to take a tough stance and implement draconion measures and deploy American troops on American soil to "restore order". Then- as Lady Liberty reels from being punched and kicked from every direction by the architects of the New World Order, the next fabricated "terrorist" attack will occur in late 2011 perhaps in lets say oh .. maybe...mid september... I will take a wild guess here and say September 11, 2011. Even as the radiation still makes the melted slot machines glow amidst the smoldering ruins of Las Vegas ,the drumbeat of the Neocons grows louder and louder as they tell the hopeless nation how this was all their fault for being so stupid as to trust our security to weakling liberals. But then - like a gift from heaven, a new hope to "rescue" our bleeding Republic emerges from the clouds of Florida...and the NWO Neocon Goldenboy Jeb Bush descends upon a ray of sunshine to usher in a new era of stability as the first American Dictator! You heard it here first folks!!!!
If McCain faces off against Obama, he MUST force the debate in to foreign policy waters. Expert vs. Novice. It's hard to beat the war hero with scars on his body when you're the new kid with a good attitude but no real experience.
Here's some food for thought. Hillary has lived the primary care giver role . . but it intrigues me to consider how someone with this perspective may handle the leadership of our country differently than a man who has had a more conventional role in his life and family. Add this perspective to a more seasoned set of credentials and perhaps Hillary is the one for the job in a way that truly is different - and that's change . .
Obama claimed victory in Louisiana, Nebraska and Washington on Saturday, as well as in the Virgin Islands.
"The stakes are too high and the challenges are too great to play the same old Washington game with the same old Washington players and expect a different result," Obama told a hugely pro-Obama crowd of Democrats at the Jefferson-Jackson dinner in Richmond, Virginia.
"People want to turn the page. They want to write a new chapter in American history."
