It is interesting.
It hard to imagine why we should vote on the basis of symbolism rather than competence.
I appreciate that many people believe Obama has to win in order to seal the symbolic deal, but then they tend to want him as their president.
If he loses it would be terrible if what he has accomplished was lost in a bitter reaction.
The mere fact that he is the Democratic candidate for president speaks volumes about how this nation has changed.
He doesn't have to win to prove it.
