Congratulations In Order

Well, although I had high hopes for Hillary Rodham Clinton, the delegates have spoken, and the Democratic nominee is Barack Obama. And I am not going to be silly like some Clinton supporters and declare that I will vote for McCain over Obama. That's ridiculous. Both Obama and Clinton want a Democrat in the White House to undo the damage of the Bush years. Electing McCain is essentially dooming us to a third Bush term.

And so, I congratulate Barack Obama. I look forward to the next few months and watching Obama hammer McCain on the issues of war, economy, health care and the environment.

My dearest Calla;

While I dance around my home singing my favorite "Wizard of Oz" tune, which I shall not name here so as not to offend you, I am sure you will join me in voting for the underqualified socialist candidate. I am sure this will lead to an ultimate resurgance of the United States. After all, it was the mess caused by the Carter administration that led to our last savior.

Hoping to be voting alongside you for once...

Your good friend,

Although I have been a long-time Obama supporter, I wanted to say publicly that had HRC won the nomination, I would have thrown every bit of my support her way. I believe they both have the best interests of the country at heart and each would do great things. It's time for a Dem and they are both formidable opponents.

I've not been this excited by an election since I voted for Bill Clinton in 1992 - my very first election.

I was excited to see Sen. Obama win, although how did he win. Not necessarily by the voice of the people. I think he should offer a little more thanks to his buddies, the super delegates. I hope he wins, I always wanted to go to Europe, now I won't have to fly to do so. Not that I would be able to afford it when his tax hikes take affect.
