Go, Barack, go.

Unbelievable. He really pulled it off. And it looks like Hillary will come in third. Will she do the Dean scream?

I keep thinking that I am old enough and cynical enough not to get enthusiastic about politicians. Yet every four years there’s one candidate who convinces me that he’s the right guy for the job.

And that candidate never, never, NEVER wins the nomination. That candidate almost never even makes it to the Illinois primary. That candidate usually runs out of money, or energy, or gets caught with a girlfriend (yes, I’m a Gary Hart supporter from way back) long before I would ever have the chance to vote for him.

I’m ready to be disappointed — he could lose, or I could be wrong about the guy, but this time maybe my guy has a shot.
