My point is this - Barack Obama has proven himself to be a charismatic, forward-thinking, incredibly appealing and inspirational candidate, the sort of candidate who just doesn't come along very often. He is bringing in millions of new voters (especially young voters), and appeals both to independents and even many Republicans. Clinton. on the other hand, has proven that although she may be capable, she is too divisive and polarizing to represent the party in November. It appears that she has concluded that the only way she can win is by "kneecapping" Obama (aka the "Tonya Harding" option); if that is her strategy, things are going to get really ugly and we can all look forward to a third Bush term.
So here's where you come in, Pennsylvania voters. The conventional wisdom says that Hillary will win the primary on April 22. If, however, Obama were to win, it would almost certainly be considered a death blow to the Clinton campaign. Pressure would rapidly build for her to drop out of the race. Superdelegates would throw their support to Obama, and she would finally be forced (probably kicking and screaming) off the stage. If, on the other hand, she wins the primary, the race will go on...and on...and on, while McCain starts to measure the curtains for the Oval Office.
Come on, Pennsylvania, save your party and save the nation! Stop the madness now! Tell Obama that he's our guy and let's start the real campaign against John McCain. If you want a Democrat to move into the White House on January 20, vote for Obama. If you want to have a progressive Supreme Court, vote for Obama. If you want to get our soldiers out of Iraq before 2108, vote for Obama. It's up to you, the great state of Pennsylvania! (Do Obama this one little favor and I bet he'll become a Phillies fan!)
