All the vote counting will probably go into the early morning hours. The County BOE has indicated that over 100,000 absentee ballots went out for voting.
Just this weekend and today nearly 1000 votes were cast at the BOE on Euclid.

What does this all mean, Ohio is once again the "Heart of it all" for the 2008 Primary season.

As I have said in an earlier post I voted in early February, so I have been able to sit back watch and listen to the Obama and Clinton campaigns.

They have talked about issues, they have talked about their differences and they have even squabbled about who said what.

The question remains who do the Democrats want to be their standard bearer in November against John McCain.

Who does the rank and file Democrat feel can bring change to America; Who can get us out of the Iraq war as fast as possible: Who is going to listen to the common man and not the special interest.

That person for Ohio is Barack Obama.

This is by no means a easy victory for Obama, as I said earlier the votes will counted until well after midnight, but I believe the Obama will end up 8 - 10 percentage points higher than Hillary Clinton.

I also believe that Obama will continue his winning streak and end Clinton's campaign for the Presidency by sweeping the other three states up for grabs tomorrow.

This campaign season will be studied by Poli Sci folks for a long time as to determine how the presumptive Democratic candidate got smoked when the Primaries came a calling.

I think in the short term, the political historians will say that America has grown weary of the Clintons and that Obama was there at the right time with the right message.

So, let the VEEPS Sweepstakes begin!
