Hooray for Hillary!
Congratulations to Hillary Clinton for winning the New Hampshire Democratic Primary!!! She is now only one delegate vote behind the flashy and feel good candidate Obama. Apparently, substance and experience counts for something in New Hampshire. THANK YOU.
By the way, I have always been a Hillary Clinton supporter even when it wasn't cool in the land of DailyKos and other progressive circles. I suddenly have an urge to hear Barbara Mandrell croon, "I was country, when country wasn't cool". :)
It is going to be real interesting to see how my home state of Louisiana votes. It has been real embarrassing for me to live in a Republican stronghold. I don't know why, but all these deer and duck hunters in my state seem to be staunch Republicans. You commonly hear their wives say, "my husband would kill me if I voted for Hillary".
I wouldn't be surprised if Obama's ship sinks in the South though. I think a smart strategist would be pushing the Muslim name thing. Create a dirty campaign mailout a week before the vote. Put conspiracy theories in voters minds. That would probably work well here. No offense to Muslims. Politics is a game where often the end justifies the means.
It'll be interesting who actually gets the votes in the South. We always seem to be real deciders in Presidential elections anyway. I just want Hillary Clinton to win. She's the right candidate.
