My friends, it’s Super Tuesday. It’s the day where 24 of these United States will do their part in the democratic process. It’s the day where huge percentages of party members will sound their voices for their candidates of choice. Traditionally, the outcome of Super Tuesday determined the next presidential candidate. This year, it is just one more step in the long journey to the presidency.
The pundits say that for the first time in many years, the winner of Super Tuesday will not reveal the possessor of the Democratic nomination. With two excellent candidates, I can see why such is the case. Rather than fearing the dilution of the Democratic message, let’s be thrilled that we have such astonishing options. Let’s be energized that either will offer the change that we so desperately desire. Let’s be hopeful that the moment is now.
With that said, on this Super Tuesday, I would be remiss if I didn’t take one last ditch effort to persuade my nearest and dearest to cast their vote for my Illinois senator, Barack Obama.
For good reason, I should say!
