The primary frenzy ... again (and a week early)

So I've started filing my posts -- and what a better one to start off with than one about politics?

The New York Times reported today that Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama has sprung ahead of Sen. Hillary Clinton in polls. Apparently, those questioned in the New York Times/CBS News poll believe Obama is the best Democratic candidate to beat out Sen. John McCain in the general election.

As a fierce Obama supporter (and one who's been on his side since 2004), this is good news. The New York state primary may be long over and lost, but there's still hope for Ohio and Texas. Don't forget Rhode Island, either.

How could such a great state -- though the smallest in the Union -- go largely ignored by the general population? With such a great city as Providence (and a great show named after it), Rhode Islanders deserve a lot more respect. And who doesn't love coffee milk, which I've mentioned before?

Before this becomes a treatise on the glories of Rhode Island, I should discuss the upcoming events for the Syracuse for Obama section of his campaign. Next Tuesday, the night of the Ohio/Texas/Rhode Island/Vermont primaries, we'll be gathering once more at the Dewittshire Tavern on Erie Boulevard, in the same area as the Syracuse for Obama headquarters, to watch the results come in. If this gathering proves as fun and exciting as the one on Super "Duper" Tuesday, a good time should be had by all. I'm hoping they recruit John-John again to cater the event. That food was amazing.
