Still looks like a horse race

May 5, 2008 - Cheryl Clarke

Wow, did you all see the Kentucky Derby Saturday? Big Brown, what a horse, but so sad for the only filly in the race, Eight Belles, being put down after breaking both ankles and after she had come in second. Though this horse race was never really a "horse race" with the dominance of the apparent front runner in the stretch to the finish line, as we enter the last six months before the general election in November, it is looking more and more like it will indeed be another "horse race." The two Democrat rivals, Clinton and Obama, are neck and neck, and if you believe the polls, either one will be neck and neck with McCain in most areas of the country come November. Looks like we will have to wait for the "photo finish" to see who wins by a "nose."

Or maybe we will be surprised and a "Big Brown" will emerge as the frontrunner as we get closer to November. I hope the same doesn't happen to the only filly in the race as happened Saturday to her counterpart, Eight Belles. Only time will tell how the nation's swing voters decide to go, and if it really matters in the end, given the impact of the so-called "super delegates" We may see a Democrat meltdown in August if it goes one way or the other because of their votes.
