This isn't news to those who follow news, but it's noteworthy. M's favorite Presidential candidate back in January was John Edwards (she liked Bill Richardson as Vice President). John Edwards even garnered votes in the recent West Virginia Democratic primary while no longer a candidate himself. I wonder how that states voting would have gone if he'd just given his announcement a day BEFORE their primary election, instead of the day AFTER.
Anyway, I'm excited at this latest endorsement of Barack Obama, which I think shows more solidity of the Democratic party for one thing, and I appreciate, and agree with, John Edwards' words about Hillary Clinton even (that she's made the part stronger for her running, x y z).
(I also noted on Tuesday, May 13th, my father's would have been birthday, that it was announced in Chicago for some reason I'm not aware of, the city of Dad's birth, that Ray Nagin, Mayor of New Orleans, became the latest [at that time] super-delegate to announce his support of Barack Obama. Just found it interesting the timing and locations of all that; M left for New Orleans with her class that day. FYI that they arrived last night, after a 26.5 hour train ride ha, so today is her first full day in NOLA. It's bright and clear here, and supposedly rainy there. She'll still have a blast! More on that later.
I should actually depart E's house, take Daisy home, feed the pretty kitties, and get on to work, eh, just making sure to NOT use a work computer for any of my political stuff! Oh, but has MY local Congressman, superdelegate Chris Van Hollen, yet announced whom he will support? Nope, at least, not that I've heard yet, and I'm on my county e-mail "list serv" for Obama supporters, so I think I'd have heard. I DID note that Martin O'Malley, our cool state Governor, has ceased sending out e-mails in regards to Hillary Clinton. I respect anyone's choice for President; I just happen to disagree with him that she'd make the best choice.)
YES WE CAN!!!!!
Oh, I should find that video, being E's computer has sound / speakers...... maybe I could finally HEAR it...........
