Some Silly Sentences / Seven Days Out

It is mind boggling to think back and recall how it all began with Iowa and how long this journey has been. I have tried to imagine how Barack feels, including all of you who have organised, volunteered, donated, and dedicated yourselves to the cause. Everyone who has been involved in this campaign should feel very proud. It has been an amazing effort and an historic contest. Now in only seven days, the fruits of your labour will be known. This final drive could make all the difference

The Countdown in Colorado!

New Jersey’s call bought the house down.”Madam Chairman, the great state of New Jersey with 127 votes casts all 127 votes for the next President of the United States, Senator Barack Obama! The place exploded. Thousands of “Yes we cans” drowned out the speakers. When things settled, New Mexico followed and after the earlier stuff up in the NM Primaries when three ballot boxes went missing for two days, I was keen to hear their vote. It didn’t happen.

The People have Spoken

Hillary and Bill Clinton need to appreciate that their game of bully boy and bluff is up. It was a good try, but the time to choose the Party nominee has run out. As has any excuses for the Superdelegates to further delay announcing their judgement. Hillary Clinton’s nomination goose is cooked – whether she accepts it or not, is her problem – Senator Obama has much bigger fish to fry and in everybody’s interests he needs to be allowed to get on with the job.

Clinton’s Messenger Boy!

This appears to be a blatant attempt to interfere in a process which can influence and determine the Democratic Party’s nomination. It represents a direct challenge to Nancy Pelosi herself, who as the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and the Party’s most senior Democrat, is only two heartbeats from the Presidency. As Speaker she is the holder of the third highest office in the country. How dangerous are these Clinton friends, donors and supporters? This is precisely the sort of thing Barack Obama wants to end in American politics. The vested interests have a lot to lose if Clinton fails. Once Clinton is no more – they are no more!
