    This campaign has been an exercise in disappointment.

    First, Biden and Dodd drop out--arguably two of the better, though less funded, candidates in the field.

    Then Richardson--who while a little lethargic, has a heart of gold--drops out.

    Add to that my #1 choice, Kucinich, getting mocked all the way to the exit, though he had great ideas (Universal Single-Payer Health Care, defunding the war and exiting Iraq, etc.)...that was tough to watch, I tell  you.

    And now, Edwards, who was the best hope for real change in the White House is out.

    So I'm left with Obama.  Now, I have nothing against Obama, and I hope he'll succeed in getting the nomination, but now he's going to have to fight the Clintons on his own, and the media has had a hard-on for the Clintons since bush took office...they miss the easy target that Bill and Hillary provide.  

    So Barack, you've got my support, and my vote, come Tuesday.  But you're going to have to campaign like you're Tiger Woods and you're down by four strokes with eight holes to play.  

    Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right.
