If it wasn’t for something called the U.S. Primary Elections (here, let the Brits explain it), this sweater would be done!

Is it luck or a curse to be from the very same State that two of the candidates call(ed) Home? Is it a high sign or the low finger of fate that one must constantly hear and witness the pandering pundits of the political day? I’ve been spending many waking hours on assignment, recording (and listening).

Everyone has an opinion. Professors, campaign managers, pollsters, and more, are my daily fare on the Beat from now until, hmm, next January!

Although I can’t really speak to platforms, I must admit, these are some exciting times! Especially interesting to me is someone named David Axelrod. He was in the Clinton camp a long time ago. Now he is the driving force behind Obama, sometimes called *the Narrator*. Fascinating! One of the most modern of Men of the New Century…

But back to practical real world matters, does anyone understand WHY all this voting always goes on in the winter months? Is that strategic? Isn’t it much more feasible that more glad-handing, door-knocking, sidewalk pounding INFO would be generated to provide a turn-out during Better Weather?

Maybe this is Chick Logic. Like Clinton’s chick logic: an itty bitty tear might’ve let me down…

I digress.

The knitting of the Beryl sweater is done! Here it is on the board, having just feasted on a final blast of steam on the buttonbands. You can see the Mongo Steamer I have on the floor
