Big wins for Obama!!!!!!!

I was glued to CNN last night. (I'm a self-admitted CNN junkie). What an amazing set of wins for Barack Obama! Not only did he win all three primaries, but he won by huge margins. Also significant is the fact that he made marked gains in Clinton's base of support, capturing the white, Latino, and women voters that were once squarely behind Clinton.

When this began, I liked both candidates about the same. As time goes by, I think less of Clinton. Not only did Bill Clinton's racially charged comments offend me, but Hillary shows herself to be less than a good sport. She doesn't even have the grace to congratulate her opponent when he wins. I take that as a sign she is desperate. And well she should be. I think Obama will undoubtedly win Wisconsin and Hawaii next week. That will give him ten straight wins, and the momentum will clearly carry him toward success in Ohio and Texas. I wouldn't be a bit surprised to see a John Edwards' endorsement of Barack Obama sometime prior to the Ohio primary.

Yes, we can.
