Obama - Finally!!!

Well, it looks like it's finally going to be over tonight. I've been an Obama supporter from the beginning, and Obama is just four delegates away from victory in the Democratic primary. The polls in South Dakota primary will be closing in about twenty minutes. I think that unfortunately he is practically forced to make Hillary his running mate because of how long and ugly this primary has ended up being. The problem is, I don't know whether taking her as the VP pick is going to help get enough of the people that voted for her to vote for him in the general election or if she will turn people off to voting for him. I think Hillary did a lot of really stupid things in the campaign, such as the ridiculous claims of a popular vote victory. "Tortured math" is what it was called, the idea that they could really come up with a tally that made an assumption that Obama had exactly zero support in Michigan.

Now McCain is speaking. Here come the attacks. "The wrong change", "he'll turn back the clock", "our security will be in jeopardy" and on, and on, and on. I'll be waiting for Obama's speech and listen to that as well.
