It's too early to celebrate and say that a Democrat is a shoo in for the presidency. Democrats are better at governing, and Republicans are far better at campaigning. Republicans basically run a potted plant every time, and they win a good deal of the time as well. I can remember the disgraceful Harold Ford ads, this is recent history. We as a country may be beyond certain types of racism and sexism, but unfortunately the Republican party's propaganda machine doesn't seem to be. The proof will be in the pudding, my prediction, the race or gender card (depending upon if the nominee is Obama or Clinton) will be used either overtly (by the RNC) or covertly (by some 527 group) in the run up to the 2008 election.

Whether Clinton or Obama wins, the GOP's will win. Both are nothing more than GOP-Lites. Don't deny it. They are nothing but DLCer's running as progressives, which they are not. Good luck!

I agree neither Clinton nor Obama are too progressive/liberal (I was wishing for Edwards). Still, I'll try to be hopeful if one of them wins, even against my better judgment.
