I’m crying tears of joy. I didn’t think this could happen. I had my doubts. Not in Obama. But in the electorate. I’m glad I was wrong. I have and always will be a Hillary supporter, but I’m proud to have Barack Obama as my President.

The Election Day is only a few hours away, and I feel the need to send a message to the undecided voter. If you are an undecided voter, then do us all a favor and DON’T VOTE. You heard it right. If by now you don’t have enough mental capacity to decide between two drastically different candidates then DON’T VOTE. I’m guessing you’re undecided because you don’t like McCain, because deep down you know he’s a ticking time bomb, mentally unfit to be President, but at the same time you don’t want to vote for a candidate that comes in a different package — one who’s not white, anglo-saxon protestant.
So go ahead, make fear of the unknown dictate your choices in life. But don’t let your ignorance, and inability to make a smart decision deprive me of a President that can actually do some good for this country. You had your chance. Twice. Your inability to make a smart decision has given us eight years of Bush, and eight years of failed domestic and foreign policies. So if you haven’t made up your mind, stay home. DON’T VOTE. Or if you need help making a decision, here it is… go against your ignorant instinct, and do what smart voters are going to do… VOTE for Obama.
P.S. If you encounter problems voting, please contact CNN voter hotline. This is likely to happen if you are an underrepresented minority and plan on voting for Obama.
This was in my junk email today… Just wanted to share.

Subject: McCain Democrats, Continuing the Fight
Date: Thu, 9 Oct 2008 22:42:58 -0700
Many of you were strong Hillary Clinton supporters. In light of the recent events we realize that many of you are unsure how to best use your vote.
As democrats we find ourselves in a similar situation of doubt as to how best continue the fight this November election. In response, we have a created a site specifically for voters like you: democrats who wish to continue the fight we have worked so long and hard to support. (more…)
Thank you. You have once again inspired me. You will always have my support, financially and emotionally. I always thought you were the better choice and tonight you proved it once again. I’m glad that the rest of the country FINALLY got to see the class act that you are. They finally got to see the real you. Not the version of you that was demonized by the media. Not a sound byte out of context. But the real you. Strong, intelligent, capable, experienced and presidential you. The rest of the nation finally got to see the woman that so many of us have believed in and continue to believe in.
I will cast my vote for Barack Obama in November, in honor of you. And because as a true democrat I would have never voted for McCain and all that he stands for. I still believe that you belong in the White House. I know that one day you will get to the White House. I can’t wait for that day.
Now that Obama has picked his running mate, my five stage grieving process has reached its conclusion. Acceptance. My optimistic side held on to hope, despite the discouraging reality. In the end, I’m not disappointed that his running mate is Biden. I’m disappointed that it’s not Hillary Clinton running for President. The person more likely to beat McCain. Who knows, maybe I’ll be proven wrong. Maybe Obama will beat McCain. I just think that sometimes hope and reality don’t coexist. In my case, my hope for seeing Hillary Clinton in the White House could not co-exist with the reality of overt sexism and misogyny . As for Obama, the sugarcoated message of hope just doesn’t seem enough to overcome his lack of experience and the Bradley factor. Maybe I’ll be proven wrong. Maybe we will get a democrat in the White House. I just think that’s a stronger reality in 2012. Hillary… I’ll see you in the White House in 2012.
Rumor has it that McCain is going to pick Mitt Romney as his Vice Presidential running mate. Is that the best he can come up with? Makes sense to me. If you’re lagging behind Obama in fundraising, why not pick a VP who can act like an ATM. Romney will write the checks, and McCain will keep on running. If he does in fact pick Romney, I don’t know if it’s going to get him any points with the conservatives. Sure Romney is conservative, but he’s a Mormon and that’s just not the same bible as far as evangelicals are concerned. (more…)

I really think you can get a good idea about a man, by looking at his wife. And I like Barack Obama a lot more, because of his wife Michelle. She is an intelligent, accomplished, outspoken woman. Sadly for her, these are qualities that can get a woman in trouble (see Hillary Clinton, Teresa Heinz and many, many more). The minute she opened her mouth, a memo went out at Fox Network to discredit her. The same network that meddled with the 2000 Presidential election is at it again. This time the target is Michelle Obama and the goal is discrediting Barack Obama. (more…)

Looks like she’s going to concede, end her run and endorse Senator Obama. I’m sad. Really sad. As a good democrat, I will vote for Obama. This whole process has made me very disheartened. And I know that the process has been very different for Obama supporters. He ran a good campaign, but he also received a very different treatment from the media. I hate how the media treated Hillary Clinton. The vicious name calling — monster, she-devil and bitch among many — left me sick in my stomach. (more…)

The California Supreme Court overturned the ban on gay marriage today. This decision makes me very proud to live in California. I think any two people who want to get married should be able to get married. For those arguing that gay marriage destroys the sanctity of marriage, well, I don’t think that sanctity exists considering that almost 50% of marriages end in divorce. And when you take into account that luminaries such as Britney and K-Fed, Pamela and Tommy Lee / Kid Rock / Rick Solomon can get married — or when you watch every other episode of the Jerry Springer show — it’s proof positive that there is NO sanctity left in marriage. So unless the conservatives have a better argument than sanctity, this particular argument holds no value. (more…)

That’s right. Hillary Clinton would be leading by as much as 600*** delegates…
I was trying to figure out who would lead the race if the the democrats had a winner-take-all primary system similar to the Republicans or to how the Electoral College decides elections. So I put together a little chart, with the numbers. If Obama won the state, I gave him all the delegates for the state. If Clinton won the state primary, I gave her all the delegates for the state. I did not count the super-delegates. (more…)
