Chinese search engine Baidu.com has Obama on their home page today. Kerry (my wife, in case you’re new here) attended the second democratic caucuses as one of Obama’s delegates a few days ago in Issaquah. There were 36 Obama delegates to Clinton’s 12 – going on to the state caucuses. So WA is definitely Obamaland.
The NYTimes had an article this morning on how kids are being influential among their parents, some of whom are superdelegates.
A former Seattle CEO and friend thinks Obama would win among delegates but Clinton would win the popular vote. The last time I was in Houston and I spent time with around 70 members of my extended Texan family at a reunion, we had a few chats about Politics. What I found was that we had a lot of common ground. And I found that it’s not the democrats that Texas republicans hate, it’s the Clintons. There’s just something about Bill, and by association, Hillary, that gets republicans very riled up.
Can Hilary win the popular vote? No way. The fact that Obama recruits new voters to the caucuses speaks volumes.
But moving away from the negative…
The reason I’m an Obama supporter is because he brings people together behind a common cause.
Hillary’s message is: “I’m an experienced Washington insider who knows how to work the system to your advantage”
Obama’s message is: “Lets all come together around the common cause of making this country great again.”
As my wife says, when I walk away from an Obama speech I’m energized and I want to get out and do something to make things better.
