Autumn Leaves

Well we made it.  It’s September. Hillary is ever closer to the nomination.

The traditional start of political campaigns, on Labor Day weekend, is here.

The voting might will begin in a few short months.

The excuses from other candidates and their supporters as to why their campaigns have failed are laid bare.

No longer can the claim be made that election season is too far away and that polls are irrelevant.

With the arrival of Autumn, those Summer dreams must be left behind.

Lady Fortune teased Barack Obama ever so briefly early in the year and tormented Edwards.

The Associated Press wrote today of the static nature of the campaign.  Hillary has been ahead and remains in the lead.   

Soon candidates will begin to abandon their efforts to gain the nomination as they realize the full extent of Hillary’s lead and popularity.
