Well, today’s the big day — the Potomac Push, the Chesapeake Challenge, the D.C./Maryland/Virgina throwdown. I got up this morning, took a quick shower and scurried down the street to my conveniently located voting center and pressed the little screen for Obama. Damn, I feel good.
Our man O looks primed to sweep today’s primary states, but Texas (and its large Latino population, who came out solid for Hillary Clinton in California) looms. But I think things are shaping up. I’m hoping Obama can seal the deal to take on the Angry Old Dude. If so, we’ll be looking at Nixon-Kennedy all over again — age vs. youth, entrenched cynicism vs. inspired idealism, Celine Dion vs. Beyoncé. Should be awesome.
