Out Out Brief Candle

In a country where the popular vote in a presidential election can be rendered moot by the machinations of the Electoral College, the abuse of a Supreme Court ruling and a candidate who, in the end, just didn't have the balls to fight for a final count, last night's show of hands in Iowa, big picture-wise, was utterly meaningless.

To paraphrase MacBeth:

[THE IOWA CAUCUSES ARE] but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Remember: Bill Clinton didn't win in Iowa OR New Hampshire.

I'm hanging on to that one...you did a great analogy here...refering to the Bush era in historical terms I just want to say "Out damn spot out....." Sandi

No matter who wins & gets into offce this time I think we need to strap our seat belts on, keep all arms & legs in the car at all times...it will be a very bumpy ride! Bush has made so many pot holes in our future road pregnant woman will have no trouble going into labor!
