Aaaaaaand - Politics Again

While I was glued to the news tonight, I found out about this blog written by an undecided Democratic Superdelegate....

I haven't looked around on it too much yet, but it looks damn interesting. The anonymous Superdelegate gives his take on the primaries and candidates. He also gives an insider look at the life of a superdelegate: the courting, the press attention, and the secret emails between superdelegates.

Beer Golf

Right, so let's get back to the fun stuff.

Pretty soon I'll post another funny video or something...But back to the election.

I just wanted to take a moment to point out just how much of the popular vote Barack Obama is really getting; check out this quote from the Daily Kos:
Barack Obama didn't just beat Hillary in Virginia. He didn't just get more votes than John McCain. In "red" Virginia, Obama got 142,000 more votes than all the Republicans put together. And that was with Hillary Clinton taking 100,000 more votes than John McCain.
I have respect for Clinton voters, but I think you have to take these numbers into consideration. Obama is a once in a lifetime candidate who can engage HUGE numbers of voters. With the delegate race still tight (but Obama now leads), the Democrats should recognize that they have a winner on their team, and they should nominate him.

Polling Place Project

Just to show I am a man of my word - here's my polling place photo from Oakland CA, 94611:

In fact, you can see my other photo and descriptions on the NEW YORK TIMES website. Not bad eh? Even more impressive - the NYTimes got this idea from my homie DigiDave's project on New Assignment last year.

After all of the complicated long division was done, super duper pooper-scooper Tuesday didn't really plop down any results. Kind of frustrating since I was hoping it would be the end of my obsessive drooling over this race. While no great news came out of it for the Dems, at least Romney dropped out! Couldn't stand that guy - and I heard some conservatives cried!?!? These people need help...

Know Your Candidate

Tuesdsay is the big voting day. While some of us may have chosen a candidate already, here's a list of policy comparisons on all the major issues:

It lists both Obama and Clinton...and the forgotten Mike Gravel. And while I assume we're mainly decomcrats here, the Republican champs are listed too. There's also a video clip link below each candidate's statement...if you want to hear them speak on a topic.

It's a big vote - take a picture

Next Tuesday, all of us Californians get to say who we want the next leader of the free world to be. With some very decent candidates to choose from (on the Dems side), and a lot at stake - the polling places should see a record turnout.

So, why not take a picture? Voting in America is an interesting, inspiring, and often super confusing process. Thanks to my friend David Cohn (aka 'digidave') I've learned of a cool nationwide project to document the voting process:

It's simple enough - take a photo of your polling place. For example, I have to vote inside a church. How crazy is that - I always thought state and church were separate. I personally think that a lot need's to be changed about the voting process. Hopefully, with the help of the New York Times, this project can shed some light on what changes need to be made.

Also, register to vote. There is no excuse - I will think less of you if you don't vote in this presidential election (although, the general election is more important).
