As we have come to learn, things don’t always work out as originally planned.That’s when old sayings are dragged out to give reason.The sardonic smartypants jokes like,”It’s Murphy’s Law”or” The best laid plans go astray”.This was one of those times. Instead of being able to write at a leisurely pace, I was about to enter a high pressure literary and political reporting race requiring a lot of homework,and a highly disciplined workload.

After all of the debates, all of the caucuses, all of the primaries, all of the expense, all of the public infighting, and the possibility of a Party split of such magnitude, the Republications would be gifted the keys to the White House; the burning question for the fence sitting Superdelegates must be; When should we act and how should we act? Doing nothing is fast disappearing as an option. Delay is risking everything. And for what! Playing russian roulette with the Party’s future,is a very dangerous game.
I have just returned home to Massachusetts from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania after spending the week campaigning for Senator Obama. It was a 350 mile trip and we worked a full day 9 am to 9 pm
“I believe he is the kind of once-in-a-lifetime leader that can bring our nation together and restore America’s moral leadership in the world,” Richardson said in a statement obtained by the AP. “As a presidential candidate, I know full well Sen. Obama’s unique moral ability to inspire the American people to confront our urgent challenges at home and abroad in a spirit of bipartisanship and reconciliation.”
