Texas Matters

Posted in 2008 Primary, Around The State, Commentary, Election 2008, Williamson County at 10:17 am by wcnews

That’s what I take away from yesterday’s results. Texans votes will finally matter in a presidential primary. Like will be written many times, by many Texas bloggers, this is the first time in my lifetime that my primary vote, in the presidential race, will actually count. We will be getting the Iowa/New Hampshire treatment for the next 27 days. I’m sure all the media corporations are salivating over the money that will be spent on advertising in Texas between now and then.

As Vince points out there have already been some Texas politicos make endorsements and, of course 39% has already had to change his.

It’s exciting to have a competitive primary coming to Texas and hopefully we’ll see record turnout because of this. Some interesting thoughts from this DKos diary, I’m tired of waiting. It’s TEXAS TIME. I was for Edwards but at this point can be pegged as a leans (heavily) for Obama. Who are you for, let us know in the comments! Get out and vote, your vote matters.

    I was for Edwards. I really don’t care for Clinton or Obama. So, I don’t know how I will vote. Maybe it will be for “BobFM”. I will be listening much more closely to what these two have to say, you can bet on that.

    It may be wrong to say this, but this nation is so screwed up, that I doubt the nation is going to elect a Republican president. I don’t see how anything would change if they do. 8 years and going no where but down, is enough to swing my vote the other way!

    Another reason I’m switching? A demo/repub comparison chart aired on NBC last night. It showed what was important to voters and what they wanted in their presidents. The economy was at the top for demos. For what repubs wanted in their president, was they shared their values. What? What good are your values when you can’t pay to live in america? What then?

    Anyway, I thought it was very intresting chart.

    This is incredibly exciting that the Texas primary will actually play a huge factor for the democratic nomination. I think Texas offers a unique distribution of people across the state with an independent view that will accurately reflect the sentiment of most people across this country. This is why i believe Barack Obama will carry Texas come March.
    The challenge is to get Obama’s message of hope and opportunity across to so many people in such a large state in a relatively short time and not let pundits decide that most of the hispanic voters will vote for Clinton guaranteeing her the state..
    Given the chance to spread his message and voters the oppotunity to make up their mind freely, people will see the leadership he possesses, feel the hope he brings, and believe again in the phrase “yes, we can”.
