Man, what a surge he had — Obama came from behind and changed lots of people’s minds about where we wanted to go in the next 4-8 years.
He changed my mind — back in January I was for Hillary. Then Bill had to go and open his mouth…
And through it all, Obama stood his ground, took the high road, and got everyone excited about America again.
All in all, it was a fascinating primary — I actually got to vote in North Carolina’s primary, as did a ton of other people who had never gotten a chance to do so as well. And that’s going to help immensely in November, when it’s time for the presidential election. People all across the country got involved — they registered and went to the polling places to vote.
As obnoxious as it got at times, I’m glad the primary race went on for so long, and I’m really glad we had two excellent candidates to choose from. Now Ms. Clinton needs to stop and go back to being a senator. Forget being VP. It’s Obama’s show now. I have a good bit of respect for Ms. Clinton, but… this isn’t her time.
Okay, got that off my chest. Also — woo hoo! Later!
