I shall be adding to this post through the day, and I hope others will join me. Here is an online video link for real time coverage of the primary, that looks interesting. :::
Amy Goodman has the quote of the day in her piece WESTERN CIVILIZATION: An Idea Whose Time Has Come.
As the race narrows, it is a key moment to reflect: One leading candidate, John McCain, was actually tortured (unlike Mukasey, although McCain supported his confirmation). McCain predicted we may be in Iraq for 100 years. He is up against Mitt Romney, who said he would double the size of Guantanamo. Neither of the remaining leading Democratic candidates calls for the immediate withdrawal of troops from Iraq. Yes, it is a key moment to reflect on the teachings of Gandhi. When asked what he thought of Western civilization, Gandhi responded, "I think it would be a good idea."
I also found an article on alternet by Ted Daley, that reflects the views of many of us here, including myself. Super Tuesday: Where's the Candidate That Represents Me?. He discuss the disenfranchisement of progressive voters when John Edwards dropped out.
