Darwin Day was good for Barack Obama. Once again, he swept the day’s primaries – in Washington DC he picked up 75% of the vote, in Virginia 64%. He looks set to win by a similar margin in Maryland.
Obama’s speech was aimed at a national audience, not just the Democratic party. His comments were aimed at McCain, not Clinton. McCain returned the compliment, directing his attacks at Obama. McCain seems like a tired old man. Sure, he seems earnest. But even in victory, he seems defeated. He said “I am fired up and ready to go”…but nothing seems closer to the truth than “fired up”. It’s sad to see. But he still won the Republican contests.
