Have a Super Tuesday

Hillary Clinton was on the Late Show with David Letterman last night. She was terrific. She came off as likeable and wise. I won't be voting for her today.

I will be voting for Barack Obama. The LA Times endorsement from last week put the "why" better than I can.
In the language of metaphor, Clinton is an essay, solid and reasoned; Obama is a poem, lyric and filled with possibility. Clinton would be a valuable and competent executive, but Obama matches her in substance and adds something that the nation has been missing far too long -- a sense of aspiration.




Here's hoping that you aspire to vote today.

So glad to read you're an Obama supporter, too. So many of the gay bloggers I've been reading lately are pro-Hillary. Thanks for posting the LA Times endorsement. I hadn't read that yet.
