I’m in withdrawal. I leapt out of bed twice last night thinking I was about to miss the plane. I woke up this morning and didn’t recognize my bedroom. My re-inherited cat seems really really annoyed I’m in his house and when I tried to get into my office computer the following message appeared:
Would you like to set your home page to "Cannot Find Server”?
Something about that appeals to me. I’m thinking of saying yes.
So, here we are. It’s over. (or starting, but today I prefer to think of it as over) He’s campaigning in North Carolina/Missouri. McCain is fundraising. She is vacationing. Her voters are either angry, resigned, defiant or in denial. Multi-stages of grief. They will not feel the same in November. Some still won’t vote for him but they won’t feel the same.
The funny thing is that most Clinton voters I talk to don’t seem that angry with Obama. They’re upset she lost and they don’t think she got a fair shake in the media. Neither are they crazy about the Democratic Party hierarchy.
And yes, I think there was sexism but don’t think it’s why she lost. And neither does her campaign.
Obama folks could not have asked for anything more out of the concession speech. She got his name out there 14 times in half an hour. She was game. She really was. Even though I kept thinking..”she’d probably rather be chewing glass”.
I’m sorry blogees to be short and subpar today, but it’s 99 degrees or something here and my head is fogged up.
I wanted to do an ode to politicians. Maybe next week.
I’m leaving you for the rest of this one.
really big drum roll….
Heading for Texas this weekend. Big big doins. Two showers for first-born’s bride to be. Happy Trails.
Did I mention the nuptials are two days after the democratic convention and two days before the republican convention?.
