And the Winner Is....

Unknown.. at least here in New Mexico. More than 24 hours after the polls closed, there's still no winner in the New Mexico Democratic primary. With only one precinct left to count, Clinton leads by a slim margin of 1092 votes. But.. there are still over 17000 provisional votes to be counted, so it could be weeks before a winner is determined. Kind of mirrors the national race.

Close enough that if we lived here we could have conceivably cast the winning ballots! Our South Dakota primary isn't until June. I originally figured it would all be settled by then. Now I'm sure we'll order up our absentee ballots. We, like you, can make a difference. But who will we make a difference for? Hmmmmmmmmmmm...


...I just don't know...

  1. I like the wrapper, but the package has a good bit to be desired. Change? Change What? Just Change? Helluva message. I just don't get this guy.

    Not much to be encouraged about in this election, that's for sure...

  3. Try that link again...

    Ron Paul, pffft. Doesn't want to do the right thing w/ taxes and doesn't take the terrorism threat seriously enough.

  5. The rah-rah, feel good doesn't do much for me. It all boils down to this one sentence, "Whether we're talking about the Iraq war, monitoring terrorist communications, health care, taxes, education, abortion and the courts, the size of government, or almost anything else, Obama embodies the views of the special-interest groups on the left."

    Sorry to hear about the girls. Don't you hate the tough luck that goes with these hounds sometimes?

    Going to see ML this weekend.
