super tuesday

I'm intrigued by a story from Yale about students voting for Hillary on pragmatic grounds while their parents were voting for Obama. I voted for Hillary most of all because as a feminist from the mid 1970s I never dreamed we could have a woman president so soon, but also because I think she knows how to get things done. But I was glad Obama won South Carolina because I wanted young people and the African-American community to have their dream. So I find it very interesting that some young people were more practical and my generation more the dreamers. It is an exciting race.
