If, God forbid, Obama wins the WH (still a looooong way off), I bet he brings a fraction of the change he is promising, and I hope his suppoters are outraged.
I'll challenge you on that, too.

Thank you. I didn't know about that. Maybe, he'll be dropping out after tonight?

I agree with everyone saying Obama v. McCain is the best option.

Obama is the still the number one option among the candidates. I don't think he'll make everything Bush ruined better again, but he'll be able to do a lot of it.

And (if Obama wins) those who doubt Obama will probably say he's done nothing come 2012, whether or not he does in fact do anything.

Couldn't be happier with the results. Now, if only Obama can beat out Clinton in NH, I may be able to rest easy in the upcoming election.

I liked Edwards' speech better. I just can't get all that excited about an inspirational speech with lots of platitudes. People love that though.

The reason you see Richardson is that his people only had to pick a second choice if he was not viable in a precinct.

It is certainly possible that he hit 15% in a handful of precincts (just like Biden did, actually and even Dodd). There, his supporters did not switch to anyone, as far as I understand it.

Yes, after Clinton vs. McCain, that is my second choice. An interesting and surely close race (although, Illinois would be a lost cause )

As much as I don't want Obama or Edwards to be the next president, I'd take them a million times over Hillary.

Well, I admit I got goosebumps a few times during Obama's speech.

. . .and hey, I'm a little confused. I coulda sworn I heard this liberal crowd changing U-S-A, U-S-A, and my understanding is that liberal democrats hate America? very perplexing...

with that and Dennis

this win is not that big to me



I think if anything
it sets up Obama to fall short
because of higher expectations from here on out

Then why is Clinton vs. McCain your first choice? I'm talking best option from the standpoint of the best candidate from each side, so even if the one I prefer loses, it'll still be alright.
