(Community Matters) First, I’m not gloating. It’s been a hard race for both sides, and I wouldn’t bet a lot of money. I believe Pres Obama has run a better campaign, is the better candidate, and will win by a larger margin than expected. I wish our country wasn’t so divided. I wish we could come together, less acrimonious and more committed to rebuilding the country we love after this election, no matter the outcome.
I also wish Texas was blue, and believe it will be by the next presidential election.
Eugene, is your belief (that TX will go blue by 2016) an expression of hope or a rational prediction based upon evidence? At age 75 I can’t remember a time when TX wasn’t mostly red, even when the 1%:99% split was between two factions within the Democratic Party. (Nonetheless, one lives in hope.)
