so, california went with hillary today and not obama. i would have thought the bay area would have leaned obama’s way, but it seems that just about the whole state was with clinton on this one. you gotta admit that bill is a big part of how hillary got up to where she is. she seems a little more ordinary if she didn’t have him by her side. there’s some talk about obama being a running-mate to hillary, but i dont know how that would work.
on the republican side, mccain was leading most of the candidates as of the writing of this post. nothing typified a republican campaign headquarters than what they showed on channel 2 tonight. priya david was at their headquarters in pleasanton and there was about 15 white men chanting and holding signs. i swore one of them had a white pointy hood on in the background, but i was watching in standard def and not hd. even huckabee and romney had a person of color and a woman in their little committees.
more interesting for me was voting in my local precinct in fremont. my name wasn’t on the official voter rolls, so i had to vote provisional. i suppose in the grand scheme of things, it probably didn’t matter too much but it sure was intriguing to see all the different shapes, colors and sizes of people in my neighborhood.Â without showing bias, i was easily the best basketball player of the group that i waited in line with.
and to close off this post, i saw this graphic which i think says it all:
he’s not talking about the gulf war.
