I have said it repeatedly that I am not anti-Obama; I am pro-Hillary. I will stand with HRC as long as she is in the running. It is my solemn belief that she is the best candidate that we have in the this race to lead our Country. She has passion, she has real plans that can possibly work and she has some great experience.

With that said, I want to make it clear, without equivocation, that I will NOT support John McCain if HRC does not win my party's nomination. If I had to choose between Barack Obama and John McCain, hands down, Obama. I do not trust McCain as far as I could throw him. He would give this country much as we have gotten under President Bush. There does not seem to be any real scrutiny of this man. It would be tragic, in one Red Letter Youth Pastor's Opinion, to have John McCain as our President. McCain is just too much for me. His Justice Department would be a mirror image of the Bush Justice Department. They would continue to roll back the clock on civil rights, women's rights, and privacy. They will continue to practice intimidation.

Won't the real McCain, please stand up:

Everyone can have an opinion based not on facts but on silly "feelings" that are had. I think that Hillary Clinton is the absolute best choice for this nation. She has a proven record of compassion, strength and ability. Hillary Clinton is right for this country!

This is the Hillary that so many people who know her knows:

Barack Obama is a fine enough gentleman. I have no beef with him. However, I think that it is vitally important that the media gets his record out there with the same tenacity that they get Hillary's record out there. Watch this clip and tell me what you think?

I am gonna tell you what, besides kids of my own I am not sure if I can love anyone's kids the way that I love my nieces and nephews. I must say, too, that my youngest nephew, Ian, has especially gotten my heart; he is so great. On Mother's Day I got the rare privilege to hang with him and his big sister and parents. We had such a great time. I, of course, took so many pictures and videos. I want to share them with you here. It really does make me desirous to hurry the day when Kelly and I have kids of our own.

Today also brought with it a victory for the HRC campaign. I am happy that she did so well in West Virginia. Of course, the mainstream media would lead you to believe that this race is effectively over and they are now calling BHO the "presumptive nominee" for the Democratic Party. Well, let me tell you, they had better not count our HRC just yet. They had better not sleep on her, nor her supporters. I think that it is very important for our party to take a long hard look at the candidate who is going to me most able to capture victory for us in the fall as well as who has the best plan for this nation. When the DNC and the super delegates do these things it is going to be very clear who is the winner!

I find it interesting that so many have counted her out of this race and BHO has all but declared victory. It would behoove the DNC-RBC to come up with a plan for the Michiganders and the Floridians that does not alienate them in the fall; if their delegates are not sat and if the votes don't count I am not sure it it will much matter is the nominee come June; we stand the chance of losing because we will have alienate millions of voters in those two states. It is the most asinine thing that I have heard to suggest that the people of Florida and Michigan's votes for the Democratic Presidential Nominee should not count. I can tell you right now that if I cast my vote and it did not count that I would be livid and would certainly not bother to give them my vote in November when it did not count in the Primary. So, to all of the Obama-ites and Obama-cans (Republicans who are supporting Obama; they do exist...believe it or not...) I would advise against counting those proverbial chickens before they are hatched.
Last night was mixed for me. I must say that I was extremely disappointed that Hillary did not do better than she did here in NC. I can tell you this, it was not for a lack of trying on her part or on the part of her supporters. I was happy to hear (finally...) that she won Indiana. I do hope that she stays in this race; she really is the best bet that we have to defeat McCain and that Republican attack machine. Hillary, you keep going as long as is necessary!

Unfortunately, the guy who I supported for Lt. Governor, Walter Dellinger, lost to Walter Dalton...but not by much. Alas, a loss is a loss...yeah?

On a lighter note, so many of the others who I support won decisive victories last night. For instance, on the local level Bernadette won the at-large commissioner seat. Glenn Gerding did not win the top seat but he made the cut to be one of two in November. Then we have the vicotories by Bev Perdue, Kay Hagan, Beth Wood, Wayne Goodwin, June Atkinson, and Janet Cowell .

My newest favorite Republican also had an outrageous victory against Republican status quo, Augustus Cho. I am so happy for this defeat. William "BJ" Lawson, is going to go against David Price in November and I think that it is time for change there and BJ is the guy to bring it. He is principled, intelligent and willing to stand alone, if need be. Congratulations, BJ!
