My African colleagues all eagerly asked me if I had voted (against Bush) and were horrified to learn that I hadn't completed the formalities in time. I'll never forget what they said to me. "You have to vote! The outcome of this will affect all of us around the world, but we have no voice. You have to be our voice. You must vote."

Four years later, I'm glad to be able to make my voice heard.
That is so awesome! Thank you for sharing that sulawesigirl!
I grew up in a 3rd world country ( PANAMA) and know what a blessing it is to have the power of the vote here in America!
This election is unique because people are finally fed up and inspiried to vote for change. It's just too bad it takes an almost complete collaspe of our gov. for people of all walks to wake up and vote!
God Bless you!

I won't be able to vote until January 2009, which means I miss these primaries and these November elections.

I'm pretty sure my father doesn't vote. But my mother is a registered independent and votes from time to time. She said to me five years ago, "I don't trust a single politician, except for John McCain."

You know I see it coming already. Hillary and Obama were fighting, and it was funny. At least they were honest. Now that so many have dropped out they seem to be making kiss my butt prep to each other so that whichever doesn't get the nom can be VP. Pretending to be friends and patronizing ad nauseum. Fakers. I knew it. All politicians are actors.

There's no way Hillary will be the VP, so I don't see your point.

Right. Obama would be a fool to pick Hillary.

Hillary by a nose is probably a victory for Obama.

Not how she imagined Super Tuesday turning out...

I agree.

A year ago, heck even 2 months ago, Hillary led Obama probably in all of those state by at least 20 points.

For it to be a struggle shows HUGE turnaround.

this has been a victory for Obama. even if he doesn't win, he's now the biggest rock star in the Senate, and he's more than young enough to bide time and plot and wield his now formidable influence -- he's more a movement, now, than a man -- for the next 4-8 years.

So you're saying that the war in Iraq is essentially a civil war in a relatively poor country?

Weren't you a Michael Bolton fan back then?

I'm just trying to do the math;something isn't adding up.
