On the road again

Its good to be writing once again. One of the things I've noticed over the past few days is how interesting debate really is... Not so much because of what people are saying. Its something of a study in human nature in the observation of people's reactions to what is said. In most cases I find the reaction to what is said more entertaining than what is said. Here is a good example...

Senator Obama is performing incredibly well in the Primaries taking place this year. If his momentum continues, even if it doesn't build, he will take the Democratic nomination for President. This will pit him against Senator John McCain, who, unless he falls ill between now and July, will be the Republican candidate.

Here's where things get interesting. Senator Clinton has shown behavior in the past that indicates she's not really interested in the politics or agenda of the party she affiliates with. More to the point, she's primarily interested in her own advancement. I heard on "Brian & The Judge" this morning something very interesting concerning a possible (and in my opinion, very possible) behavioral outcome in that Senator Clinton, and her political machine might decide it is more in their interest to lean on the delegates in the states yet to have run their primaries so as to assure her nomination, regardless of what the popular vote in those states ends up being. As polls stand now, Senator Obama is either even or ahead of Senator Clinton in all states still outstanding. As I said before, if his momentum continues he'll clinch the states. If Senator Clinton doesn't do "something" about this she'll lose, and that is not an acceptable outcome to her. It never has been.

I'm excited to see what happens in the coming months. It will be very interesting to see how things work out in the upcoming election season.
