Mebbe. Mebbe not.
We'll have to see what happens in New Hampshire, but Obama kicked both Edwards and(thankfully) Clinton's asses tonight in Iowa, and he's looking more the part of the president every minute. I'm just glad to see Hillary at least shown that this job is not hers by dynastic right.
The media seem to be trying to build up momentum for Obama, now that he's proven it's not impossible for him to win. The question now seems who's going to be the running mate. I'd have assumed Edwards, but he might have made that less possible by not congratulating Obama. But I cannot imagine Hillary accepting VP; that is, unless she had a sinister plan in mind.
What I like at the moment about the idea of an Obama candidacy is that the Republicans have been preparing for her all this time, with their constant, "Oh, please, don't nominate Hillary, she terrifies us!" reverse-psychology crap. But they've had far less time to prepare for Obama. Think of Lawrence of Arabia, and the capture of Aqaba
, where the Turks had welded their guns in place, facing in the wrong direction.
