First Signs That Barack Obama Might Win… Or Be Competitive In Pennsylvania:

The Presidential Poll site above keeps track of the various poll results on a daily update basis. As the quote above indicates, yesterday’s polls had Obama pulling even or ahead of Clinton in PA. Bill Clinton has said that the race will be over if Hillary loses in Pennsylvania, probably believing such would not happen. However, Obama seems to have overcome some mean hurdles in recent weeks and looks to be moving right along.

A college thing with with MSNBC in West Chester PA last night showed Obama with his strongest new supporters — students totally enthusiastic about his campaign and comments in ways that I as a college teacher have not seen in several decades. If he can also reach working people and older women, he will finish off this primary campaign and the general election with massive and wildly enthusiastic support. As an old timer who first became politically aware and active in college myself, it looks good, better, and best from this vantage point.

From my contacts out there in the internet I gather that Obama is having the same effect on college students even in some of those nations less than friendly toward us. Perhaps he will become the secret weapon that will restore the respect and trust in the U.S. that Bush has squandered? Let us hope.
