I thought the Democratic primary might finally be over this evening. But having watched Hillary and Obama give speeches and lots of talking heads, it apparently isn't over yet. Six months and it still isn't over. My god, when will it ever end. Does the woman not realize she's lost? Anybody with half a brain already knows she's lost.
Andrew Sullivan, meanwhile, is losing his mind. But that's hardly a surprise.
I know this will likely end in the next couple of days. But this evening would have been a graceful and classy way to exit. But that never happened. Instead, it was an implied threat to make her the vice-president. Jesus.
On the other hand, there's no drama like this anywhere in Canadian politics. Doc O'Keefe won the mayor's race in St. John's this evening. I just remembered to check. I've spent all evening watching the primaries wrap up. Kind of sad, really.
Anyway, I hope it's over in the next couple of days. But it won't be. Not until November.
As much as I fear for my sanity, I worry more about my friend Andrew. His wife was, according to some IMs I was getting from her this evening, actively cursing at the TV and Hillary. And possibly drinking heavily. I fear she won't make it to November. And, if they move to Canada, she might die from boredom dealing with Canadian politics. The withdrawals after this campaign are going to be brutal.
