I had not consciously realized that I was pulling for Obama for President. I don't really have a horse in the race yet, and the only person I was sort of pulling for was Bill Richardson. Here's a post I did on him back in April. However, when Obama didn't score 1st place tonight in New Hampshire I found myself disappointed. So then I started to think about why I was pulling for him, as I really have nothing against Clinton.**
It's because I think Clinton would be a fine Democratic President. We'd see the Dem party of the last 10-20 years fairly competently run. As I'm Democratic leaning, that should be fine. But if Obama were to win, I think we'd have a chance to change the parties themselves. That's even more appealing.
**The only thing I do have against a Clinton Presidency is Bush-Clinton-Clinton-Bush-Bush-Clinton-Clinton? One could conceivably go from 1988 until 2016 with the same two families in charge. Communist (Really nowadays just Oligarchical) China changes its leader's surname more often. I am well aware this isn't Hillary's fault, but it still bugs me.**
