Dear PA voters,
You have a chance to make history and I hope you will come through for us. New Hampshire did it first, then Texas and Ohio stepped in and made sure that everyone knew that Hillary was the best candidate and now it is up to you. (this is not to disparage the other states that went for Hillary especially Michigan and Florida but these are the states that made the pundits eat their words). MSM labeled her campaign "inevitable" not Hillary, they went on and on about how perfectly run her campaign was run in those early days and how she just couldn't seem to make any mistakes (of course the new meme is what a bad campaign she has run but we shall see) and then the MSM fell for their new love- Obama (but only if he isn't put up against their favorite -the maverick).
Americans (and democrats in particular) have a fascination with the new and untried. It always seems so wonderful to see a fresh face and democrats swoon so easily. That is the attraction of Barack Obama. If democrats had been smart in 2004 they would have made their nominee Al Gore. But no we democrats never go with someone who lost (even if they actually won by over a half a million votes and if Al Gore didn't suffer from the same democratic wimpyness as the rest of them he wouldn't have been in that position because he would have used Bill Clinton to his full potential and Florida would have been moot -but that is another rant). We in all our wisdom decided that a war hero was the way to go and it wouldn't matter that he was a northeast liberal and had a foreign sounding wife. And we lost yet again. Do you honestly think that if the Supreme Court had stolen the election so blatantly from Bush in the 2000 election that the republicans would have fielded any other candidate? Not a chance in hell.
