Proud of My Homestate
I've been reading blog reports of Seattle area caucus-goers, and it has been giving me such a high. I was chased away from the Pacific Northwest by the rain and gray skies, but would want to move back there for the political climate and the fabulously friendly people.
The reports of the turnout are incredible, like double what they saw in 2004. How exciting!
Super Tuesday in my present homestate did not favor my candidate, however I was very delighted to read in the neighborhood paper that my neighborhood (which I canvassed) and city, Boston, favored him, along with surrounding towns Cambridge, Somerville and Brookline.
I was so grateful to all those inland states that I've never visited for keeping his candidacy alive. I need to go to those states and pay them homage someday.
His candidacy, these turnouts, the positive results in so many unexpected places are all working together to drive away the pessimism that the war generated in this country.
