The Nominee

NOW hope.

Historical or not, the real work has only begun. I just hope Hillary's stubborn standoff has not harmed his chances. While the conservatives seem disjointed, out of sync, and not totally in favor of McCain, they are united in their effort to have a Republican in the White House. Barack is in for an interesting fight.

I think the real work began before Iowa. No way are we at this moment without the efforts of the millions of Americans who built the grassroots organization necessary for Barack to defeat the most powerful machine the Democratic party has ever seen. Who, in many places, overcame verbal assaults, shook off bomb threats and symbols of violence and kept on canvassing and phonebanking and organizing.

I experienced this organization close up and personal last weekend. The work Obama's field organizers perform is beyond belief. I've never seen anything like it.

Quiet as it's kept, the Clintons are more vicious than the Republicans and their machine wielded more power.

And the freshman Senator from Illinois pulled off the biggest political upset in American history.

I don't fear the Clintons or the Republicans of the swiftboaters waiting in the wings.

I don't fear the false rumors or the blatant threats.

The road will remain tough, and we will fight even harder.

And we will win.

Know hope.
