Obamania Sweeps Over New Hampshire

Obamania is sweeping through New Hampshire like a winter wind bringing winds of change to the northeast. Latest polls indicate he now holds anywhere from 39% of the vote up to the forties while Clinton has dropped to about 29%. A fatigued Hillary Clinton vowed not to drop out of the race even if tomorrow’s news is a crushing defeat for her campaign. “It’s not easy. It’s not easy,” she told her supporters. “I just don’t want to see us fall backward.” The Iowa defeat and the coming defeat in New Hampshire has made Clinton adopts the Giuliani strategy of focusing on the large states.

Barack Obama has connected with the people of America while Senator Clinton appears trapped in the past of experience. The question confronting both candidates and political analysts is whether success in Iowa and New Hampshire will translate into victories all over the country. Is Obamania a quick spring rain that will vanish or is it the beginning of a powerful storm that will rage across America. In a sense, the future does not belong to Hillary Clinton, she is known for who she is and what she has accomplished. The future belongs to Barack Obama if he can convinced the American public there is substance behind the rhetoric of a charismatic voice.

    My question is this, do the people of America want the same run around and equivocation as we have had for the last 8? With Hillary Rodham Clinton, we will have more of the same failed policies and economic devastation as we have had under G.W. Bush. Sen. Clinton has not repudiated her votes for the Iraq conflict and has not ruled out long-term presence of solely American troops in Iraq. Can the American economy, absorb another 15-20 years of supporting the Iraqi government, when they have the resources to fund their own rebuilding and restoration efforts? Which they should by rights be able to give the contracts to, without the US government nosing into.
    I am sure, that the American people as well as the people of Iraq want change not only in the style but the substance of the leadership of the government of the US. Are we, the electorate so blind as not to see the long-term effects of the continued occupation of Iraq? Are we, the electorate of the US, so blind as not to see that there needs to be an end to the blindly partisan and divisiveness that is today balkanizes the US? We need change, not only in the grassroots but in the halls of Congress and the White House. We can ill afford the same kind of rancorous politics that has divided our country for the last 37 years.
    People of America unite, give Barack Obama a chance to change the way politics is conducted and the halls of power operate, so that in years to come we can see this year as a pivotal moment in the “fight for the people.” Yes, I do, see “Obamania” sweeping the nation.

    I agree with your support of Obama. I believe he will be a force for change.
