There will be the tendency for Barack Obama supporters to feel good after Super Tuesday, and feel that Barack Obama has a second term in the White House in the bag.
That would be the worst assumption possible!
On paper, yes, things are looking good as the GOP race for the Presidential nomination continues, and Mitt Romney looks in trouble, and Rick Santorum, who most logical people cannot see having any chance to win the nomination or election, continues to do well, particularly in the heartland of the nation.
Eight months to go until the election, and the world can turn upside down and inside out, in less than that amount of time.
We could have a major war in the Middle East against Iran, or another economic downturn, which could be triggered by that war with Iran.
Unforeseen circumstances we cannot imagine could occur, and the tides could turn.
Remember that Thomas E. Dewey was ahead of Harry Truman in 1948; Richard Nixon ahead of John F. Kennedy in 1960; Jimmy Carter ahead of Ronald Reagan in 1980; Michael Dukakis ahead of George H. W. Bush in 1988; George H. W. Bush ahead of Bill Clinton in 1992; and Al Gore ahead of George W. Bush in 2000 to the end, but not considering the electoral vote issue that would help Bush in the end.
There is plenty of work ahead for the Obama team, and they cannot afford to be cocky.
They need to remember the admonition of Yankee great, catcher Yogi Berra, who is famous for his line about baseball games: “It ain’t over till it’s over”!
No more true statement can be expressed regarding politics, as well as sports!
It is over. The Democratic Party is totally irrelevant. World socialism is not getting Americans back to work. Maybe you can get some demonstrators going like are demonstrating in the Middle East. The Occupy Wall Street thing did not seem to get any wheels on it.
Personally, I am an independent voter. If I could do it, I would run for office, but I would have to get 23,000 signatures to get on the ballot for an office your Democratic Party candidate has to get 4,000 signatures to run for. Not to worry, though. At 43% of the voters right now, independent voters will outnumber all political party members soon. Then they will gain ballot access and begin to be elected to office, and the two major parties will be done in this country.
