Water Cooler Theme

The past month has been a very busy one for Americans. We celebrated the New Year, made it through another and final Bush SOTU address and now we have the Super Bowl. There have been a lot of newsworthy issues and events this month, but only one thing has dominated the news: The Democratic nomination.

While I can't watch all the networks due to my geography, I still read most of the network news and I have seen an overriding theme. The Dems nomination is more "important" to the Media than anything. There are a lot of supportors for both of these candidates and, from what I can gather, the Media is leaning towards Obama. Regardless of Media preference, Americans also seem to be just as eager to ingnore the rest of the events these days. What will happen on Sunday?

I will not be watching the Super Bowl. I did not watch one game this season and really could care less, but I know that many people do. I just wonder how many people on Monday morning will be talking about the Patriots perfect season or the fact that the Democratic party has never looked so strong.

I'm not really into the Super Bowl either. Super Tuesday is the one I am interested in. Just read today that Knox Co had the highest turnout of early voters in the state, even higher than Shelby and Davidson.

Agree also about Super Tuesday (vs. the Super Bowl) ..I have got sweaty palms already worrying about it.

I apologize in advance for what Oklahoma may do....looks like maybe Hillary and ?? some thoughts it might be Huckabee. OK is supporting the neighboring Arkansans.
