Pennsylvania DOES Have a Choice

Pennsylvania has long been one of those powerful states that’s largely controlled by the big party machines.  Their republicans tend to follow their party machine, as their democrats tend to follow their party machine.  It should come as no surprise to anyone that Hillary Clinton is much more entrenched in the democratic party machine than Barack Obama is.  It’s one of the main reasons that she has done better in the larger, non-caucus states.  But, fortunately, there are enough people who are willing to forego the wishes (or will) of the those party machines.  That is why Mrs. Clinton has not run away with the popular vote in the states that she has won.  She has – up to now – enjoyed a relatively healthy 12% edge in the Pennsylvania polls, over Mr. Obama.  Senator Casey’s endorsement of Barack Obama should help whittle down that 12% some.  Just how much remains to be seen.

For Mr. Obama’s sake (and our country’s sake), I hope that a lot more Pennsylvanians follow Mr. Casey’s lead, and find their own reasons to begin to think more seriously about who would be the better democratic candidate.
