Brief Analysis of Nevada

Clinton had her first clear victory. She took 51% of the state, even though Obama may have won more delegates. Edwards suffered from the strategic behavior of the anti-Hilary component, as I feared he might.

I am saddened that our local news radio station, WTOP, has run a serious on why we shouldn't discuss politics -- particularly at work. Why? Because it's potentially divisive. Apparently, the notion that as grown ups and citizens why should talk to each other about the most vital issues (i.e., self governance) because we just can't handle it and all should be reduced to pleasantries. Feh. A recipe for breeding sheep.

Nevertheless, as this is rather long and controversial, I drop it below the fold.
