Barack Obama makes history as the first African-American to become a major political party nominee for the position of President of the United States. We have come a long way from the back of the bus to the head of the country. Whether or not you choose to vote for Obama in November, we all must respect what he has accomplished. He was the underdog, behind in the polls only a year ago. Hillary Clinton despite her loss has also accomplished so much. The laast woman to come close to her position was Geraldine Ferraro, but I believe Hillary has surpassed even her. This election has been historical, leaving us with something to be proud of after the complete fiasco of the previous two election cycles. I enoucrage people to nevertheless read all the candidates records, listen to their speeches, and judge them individually. My own mother wanted to vote for Hillary because she was a woman. My friends wanted to vote for Obama because he is NOT white. This is far to grave of a situation not to take it very seriously. Vote on the issues. Not on color or sex. In the end, as long as we do not vote in the same of Establishment we have had (not only for the last eight years but truly for the last 16-30 years), we will be fine. Our country can only go up from here, right?
Hillary Clinton wins big in West Virgina amidst every major political expert sayiing she cannot win, even with tonight’s victory. She is now losing in the super delegates number, and iit seems like her entire motivation is to pay her growing 21-million dollar debt. During her speach after her victory, she is in the shadow of her own, biggest fan, James Carvel, who has finally come out to say she cannot win. Yes, the very man who called Governor Richardson a “Judas”, now is defecting himself. She cannot win. It is mathematically impossible. The question arises: is she a republican in disguise? Exit polls suggest, even in West Virginia, that democrats donot feel she has her same values. Is this about her ego, the American people, or the aiding in a third term for the Bush-ites?
On Sunday, Danica Patrick became the first woman to win an Indy Car Race.
She defeated two-time Indy 500 winner and Dancing with the Stars champ Hélio Castroneves by nearly six seconds to take home the first place trophy at the Indy Japan 300.
Patrick covered 200 laps at the 1.52-mile course in one hour, 51 minutes.
Will we see Danica go after the Dancing title, too?
