Super Tuesday

Super Tuesday is a day in February when over 20 States select their Democratic candidates for the Oval Office.  That race was won by US Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.  Sadly, it was all downhill from there as US Senator Barack Obama beat her in the States that followed.

Today, 3 March 2008, may not be super tuesday, but it sure seems like it.

For Clinton, it's do or die.  She must win in the states of Texas, Ohio, Rhode Island and Vermont, whose primaries are today, otherwise she will lose the Democratic nomination.  She needs to win all four States.

Here in the Philippines, it's Super Tuesday in UP Diliman as the students there elect the new University Student Council.  My brod, Third Bagro from Law is running up against Steph Tan of CSSP and another candidate whose name escapes me, for the chairmanship.  Friends say it will be a very close fight.

Both contests are interesting to watch.

I can't wait to find out who came out the victor.
