Why I’m Happy about SuperFatTuesday

As an Obama supporter, I was originally kind of disappointed at yesterday’s results. At first, all the major news outlets called SuperTuesday a huge win for Hillary. But after the final counts are in, it turns out…. not so much:

  • The Clintons just pumped $5 million of their own dollars into their campaign.
  • The Obama campaign has reeled in $5,886,067 since the polls closed yesterday as of this writing. In one day.
  • Some Clinton campaign staffers are going without pay due to the cash crunch.
  • Depending on who is counting the cryptic, loathed delegates, Obama won more. (Can we just use a popular vote someday?)
  • My hunch is that the remaining political map is going to favor Obama.

Get out and vote this Tuesday!

Very inspiring, and I agree with Rebecca, Jimmy Carter, and many others that said that Obama will have a healing and inspiring effect that no other candidate could possibly come close to.

The Obama vote is now neck and neck with Clinton. Go vote. Then go celebrate Mardi Gras. But don’t forget to vote first.

Vote for Food Allergies

Martha Stewart is hosting a competition within her company to help staff members contribute to generating new strategic directions. She is down to seven finalists, one of which (Alexis) is proposing a publication dedicated to food allergies. Here’s her abstract:

To publish a special magazine that offers delicious allergy-friendly recipes, making life for people with food allergies and sensitivities easier and more delicious. Millions of people, including myself, can’t eat nuts, dairy, wheat or gluten, and I’d like to empower people to make great recipes even if they can’t use all the standard ingredients.

Vote for Alexis’ proposal and get Martha Stewart on the bandwagon! 1 in 133 Americans can’t be wrong…
