Allow me to feel good that Hillary Clinton made a very respectable showing yesterday. The more attention that Obama gets, the less I can stand the man. I don’t particularly care for HRC, but the Democrat’s alternative makes me cringe. So, I’ll settle for the politician I “know.”
On a similar note, I must make the following observation: It appears that Obama’s supporters are a lot more consistent. They seem to show up to vote whether he is ahead or behind; they are just always there. On the contrary, it seems like Hillary’s supporters are a lot more complacent. They seem to only come through for her when they know she is the underdog: first with New Hampshire’s primaries, then with Super Tuesday, and yesterday with what some were calling Critical Tuesday. It’s interesting; not necessarily useful or relevant, perhaps, but certainly interesting to me. It’s as if her supporters take it for granted that the rest of the electorate will automatically acknowledge her skill and poise, so maybe there is no real need to get out the vote. Then, they see that hello, the rest of America is perfectly content with this relative unknown, and that shocks them into action or something.
And this leads me to my next rant: It’s all very weird to me, especially since there is no way I could ever be hired for a commanding post in my field without relevant experience. I mean, just imagine me applying for a, say, Project Manager position, with only the wee bit of experience I have. The “potential” employer would think I am crazy and toss me out on the tail of my hijab. Yet, this pip-squeak is raising millions in cash and votes. I really don’t get it.
