Hi Folks,

I was up far too late watching the presidential nomination results come in from my native Texas and our cold sister to the north, Ohio.

I must say, I am generally delighted by the two democratic candidates, and will ultimately be pleased by either of them. I am somewhat disappointed that both campaigns are beginning to use more below-the-belt comments. I hope that, as it becomes increasingly obvious that both candidates have dedicated and passionate followers, and are approximately evenly split across the nation, that both the Clinton and Obama campaigns finish this primary season with passion, honesty, and above all graciousness.

So please pardon me today – I’m going back to bed!
