Hey Pumps and Glossy Ones,
If you live in a Super Tuesday primary state, did you vote? I really do hope so.
If you did not because you were not registered, please hightail yourself to Declare Yourself as soon as possible. At this site, you will find voting registration applications and deadlines for all 50 states.
This is by far the most historic election in the history of the United States of America. Who would have thought (some may have hoped) that we would have a woman and African-American man as viable candidates?
Even with all this progress, do not ever forget that the struggle is not over. Work still needs to be done, especially to equally educate all the children of the United States from the crumbling ghettos to the affluent suburbs. There needs to be equal pay for equal work. Much work needs to be done in this country. Hopefully, whoever becomes president will begin to transform the nation into a positive direction.
Mr. Maven and I were tracking the Super Tuesday results as if we were tracking a sporting event. We knew at the end of the night that there would be no clear leader on the Democratic side, so we did not stay up all hours of the night to get the results. I will say that I thought that Barack would have done slightly better in the Northeastern states, yet he did well in Western states, which held caucuses. I thought that he and Hillary would have split those states. So stay tuned to this race as it will get even more exciting.
Former Governor Mike Huckabee showed he had some fight left in him. I am sure he got the Conan O’Brien bump. I think his showing will continue to add fuel to the O’Brien Vs. Stewart-Colbert “feud”, assuming the writers’ strike does not end soon. The feud is that Conan O’Brien and Stephen Colbert claim that they made Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. It seems that when Huckabee is on the Colbert Report, he seems to do well in a primary. Colbert refers to that as the Colbert Bump, which means that guests benefit from being on his show. Jon Stewart placed himself in the mix saying that he made Conan, which means that he, too, made Huckabee.

On a serious note, check out this Barack Obama “Yes We Can” speech set to music. This video is reminiscent to a Dr. King speech.

Remember voting is very important.
Those of you who live in early voting states – STOP VOTING EARLY!!!
