I realize everyone is tuned into the primary results especially for Ohio and Texas. This is clearly the big news for the day, except for the continued slide of the American economy.
Obama could deliver the knockout blow, Clinton could reemerge as a very viable and probable candidate, or there could be a leveling of the field as it were, with both getting an even amount of votes and delegates.
Personally I hope its not the last scenario. I want to see the damn thing wrapped up.
Hey if everybody thinks it ought to be Obama, then that is the 'wisdom' of the American people.
If Obama gets in, and I apologize for saying this again, he is going to make or break.
If he breaks, America becomes Neoconia in 2012. The backlash from a broken Obama presidency will probably be ultraconservative and ugly. That's my fear. After we witnessed almost 8 years of Bush, any belief that it will all work out for the better, is completely broken. This is America.

Money: GM To Launch New Hybrid System For Use On More Models
General Motors Corp. (GM) on Tuesday said it will produce a new version of its GM Hybrid System in 2010 using a lithium-ion battery to deliver three times the electric boost of its current system...I'm failing to see the advantage here. The old system was capable of a 25% improvement of gas mileage, while the new one that comes out in 2010 can offer a 20% improvement in gas mileage. That sounds like going backwards.
The new GM hybrid system will offer a 15% to 20% improvement on fuel economy over the base model, depending on the type of vehicle. The current GM hybrid system offers a 10% to 25% improvement.
