Hillary Wins New Hampshire

Now we have a contest! Obama 1 … Hillary 1.

The prospect of a woman president is very exciting. I think our country has come a long way when picking between a woman and an African American doesn’t seem like that big of a deal politically.

Hillary made a come back in NH after losing Iowa to Obama the week before. I’m not sure what turned voters around for her but I’m glad it is a contest now and we get to see them go at each other in the debates it for a while.


Obsessed With Politics

Between the writers strike causing a lack of new TV content and my fascination with politics, I have become totally obsessed with the Iowa and NH primary. It helps that there are debates on all the time and the news cycle has been slow lately (except for Britney Spears). I’ve been watching about 4 hours of political news a night lately and liking it. I think I need to get some help.

Obama Wins Iowa

I stayed up to hear the speeches on MSNBC last night after Obama beat Clinton and Edwards in the Iowa caucuses. I have been expecting Obama to rise up but was still a little surprised to see it happen. Iowa is almost all white and they picked a black man named Barack Hussein Obama to be the next president – wow! Most of our parents probably never thought they would live to see it and their parents probably can’t believe it. I hope he goes on to win the presidency, but even if he doesn’t, I’m glad that today it seems possible.

Dem. Debate Tonight

Another democratic debate is tonight on CNBC or MSNBC. I’m looking forward to it. I missed the last GOP debate so this one I already have programmed into the tivo. Should be fun to watch Edwards and Obama try to move up against Hillary. I haven’t picked my favorite yet.
