I really wish I could say that I was surprised to wake up this morning (eh. afternoon) and see that Hilary had broken Obama’s 12 primary winning streak by taking the two most important states at this point, Texas and Ohio; but sadly, no surprise at all. Throughout this election I’ve really wanted Obama to spring ahead, but a lingering pessimism inside of me has known all along how this will turn out. I’ve been an American long enough to know that the general public can’t smell bullshit when it’s getting crammed up their nostrils, and for this reason alone I can (sadly) say for sure that we will end up having a McCain/Clinton election this year; and because Hilary will alienate independents, who will then vote for McCain, our country will at best improve ever so slightly over the next four years.
I’m not sure if I’m just a realist, or a pessimist, but I just really can’t see a way Obama can pull this off. Sad.
