Congratulations to Senator Barrack Obama.
He waged a smarter campaign than Hillary Clinton.
Obama's strategy was as smart as Bill Clinton's in 1992 and George Bush's in 2000 and 2004.
It is the old adage, national elections are marathons, not sprints.
Hillary planned for a sprint.
When she won New Hampshire, the Clinton Machine seemed poised for another family dynasty. While interviewed the morning after, Obama looked physically beaten and haggard. Yet, he caught his breath, regained his optimism and won a string of victories.
Hillary claims she holds a trump card by earning 18,000,000 primary votes. The eighteen million votes is record breaking for a primary, but from what national perspective?
In 2004, the loser, John Kerry earned 57,355,978 votes.
Lest we forget,
George Bush won the 2004 election with 60,693,281 votes.
I like both Obama and John McCain.
Yet my vote will go to the candidate who will appeal to my most noble intentions,
not my worst fears.
