What a night in politics
Thankfully I only worked until 5 PM (Pacific time) so I didn't miss any of it. This truly was one of the most exciting nights in politics I have ever experienced. Going into Tuesday's contests, I thought Obama's victory in North Carolina would be about equal to that of Hillary Clinton's near-certain victory in Indiana -- at least six points on both fronts. I was wrong. Obama landed a comfortable victory in North Carolina, and brought us to the edge of our seats for the long, drawn out contest in Indiana. Clinton pulled it out,
By the end of the night, Obama went from being pushed against a fence to the certain nominee. With Clinton about to get out of the race (fingers crossed on that one), Obama will be the target of GOP attacks from now until November. If Hillary accomplished one good thing this race, it was that she helped get the Jeremiah Wright scandal out front and center now, as opposed to letting the Republicans do it just weeks before the election.
What a night. And so a new race is about to begin -- again, assuming Clinton drops out. Yes, assuming.
