All I’ve got to say…

It seems as though I ought to write something about the election, but I’m darned if I can think of anything that hasn’t already been said.  The Dharma connection is obvious, so there’s no point in belaboring that point.  Ditto the historical angle, the racial angle, the political angle. 

It has all been said, is pretty darned clear to those who care to see, and will be repeated many times over the next couple of centuries.  For this is a millennial event; the most powerful country in history is for the first time going to be led by a representative who is not only of it, but also of a lineage that has become one of the least-enfranchised on Earth.

We have proven that Yes, We Can.  Now we must show that We Can Continue.

It’s Obama, Warts and All – WSJ.com

Mr. Obama is now the prohibitive favorite. Tuesday night, he took at least 94 delegates to Mrs. Clinton’s 75 and leads the former First Lady by 176 delegates in the AP tabulation. He has 1,840 of the 2,025 delegates needed to win. Mr. Obama needs only 185 – or 38% – of the 486 outstanding delegates (217 to be elected in the six remaining contests, and 269 superdelegates yet to endorse a candidate). Mrs. Clinton needs 341, or 70% of those left to be awarded.
