An embarrassment of riches
I haven’t felt this good about being a Democrat in a long time. I really honestly don’t care whether the nominee is ultimately Obama or Clinton, either one would be such a vast improvement over both what we currently have, and what the other side is offering. I will be perfectly happy with a President Obama or a President Clinton. I’d’ve also been perfectly happy with a President Kucinich, a President Gravel, a President Richardson, a President Dodd, a President Biden. Strongest field I can ever remember running. It is a very good year to be a Democrat.
So, I have no idea which one I’m going to vote for in the Ohio primary. I like Obama’s style. I like Hillary’s experience. I might still write in Kucinich because I’m an ornery Liberal cuss.
What I haven’t sorted out yet whether I’m impressed that either way we’re going to have a candidate of color or a female candidate… or disappointed that it’s taken this long for either barrier to fall. I do find it fascinating that the two “barriers” are going head-to-head, though. Is it more meaningful that the color barrier be broken, or the glass ceiling, or should both be considered broken just because of who our two remaining candidates are?
Oh, and Wolf Blitzer is a doofus.
