I feel so strongly that I want the Democrats to win, that I suppose I have been hoping there would be some tip-toeing, but that is not what this election is about.
I also recognize how fervently some of my women friends want a woman president as an example for their daughters. It seems that many feel these endorsements today by the Kennedy family have now given the election to Barack Obama. I'm not necessarily sure about that at this point, but no matter what, I think Hillary has shown us that a woman can be president. It may not necessarily be this time around, but the dam is broken, and without a doubt this election is about great change. The Democrats have strong candidates, and we have a choice, and a woman and a black are showing courage and strength. I am thrilled about that.
We haven't had an election in years where people were so invested in their candidate. Young people are voting and are enthused. Paul Krugman says the Democrats have to win by huge amounts to counteract the dirty tricks the Republicans used in 2000 and 2004, and will use again in 2008. It is time for a land slide. May this be so!!
