Until the very last minute, I considered voting in the Republican primary today. (You can do that in VA --- one or the other, but not both.)
The cynical calculation for that move would be to vote for Huckabee, the candidate most likely to complicate things for the GOP.
I'm not quite that cynical yet.
Richardson was my first choice and I still think he's the best of the lot who appeared on today's Virginia ballot. But I checked out his web site and he's urging supporters to choose carefully among the candidates still running.
So it came down to Barack or Hilary.
She's smart and her heart's in the right place, but there's little difference between them on the issues and he's way more inspiring.
And her telephone recorded phone messages at dinnertime this weekend didn't help.
