A Quick Note on New Hampshire

January 9, 2008 at 3:32 pm Leave a comment

My preference for candidates can be easily indexed to where they position themselves on a left-right continuum. So, amongst the democrats, my preferences are something as follows: Kucinich–Obama–Clinton. However, I readily acknowledge that Obama and Clinton are both DLC-style democrats, despite working in  an occasional populist nod on the stump.

While I’d have like to have seen Obama beat Clinton last evening, part of me is pleased that a leading female candidate should take a state. In fact, I hope she takes a few more before it’s all said and done. It’s good for backwards Americans to be supporting a woman for president. So good that I propose a constitutional amendment requiring gender parity. What this means is that when a person becomes a parties’ candidate for president he or she must choose a running-mate (I’m aware of the pun, and embrace it) of the opposite sex. What do you think?
