Wish Me Luck!

posted by on May 16 at 13:30 PM

I’m running to become a 7th Congressional District national delegate for Obama tomorrow. I’ve been working my butt off for SIFF for the last few week and haven’t had much of a chance to campaign, so I don’t rate my chances very highly.

But what chance I do have is largely due to you, Slog politics junkies, and I thank you. (Even you, Big Sven—I love wrasslin’ in the comments.) Has this primary been fun or what?

You Know What I Like About Obama?

The Feminist Case Against Hillary Clinton.

Wishin’… and Hopin’… and Behavioral Economics.

Why Erica is (Mostly) Wrong on Barack Obama.

OK, Now Hillary’s Pissing Me Off.

Good to Know.

Caucus Potus.


… and, of course, The Stranger’s endorsement (which I cowrote with HRC fan Josh Feit) way back in January.

If I’m elected as a national delegate, I will, of course, be Slogging from the convention and probably writing a longer piece about my experience. You guys benefit, too—so beam me lucky thoughts!

Good luck Annie! You'd have my vote if I didn't live in Virginia.

Good luck, Erica.

I'll be there in the running as well, representin' the Fighting Forty-Third

Good luck. And behave yourself.

Good luck! Have fun!

We've never met, as I'm a Slog reader in Atlanta, but I had a dream a few weeks ago that I was back in college, in a sorority, and you were the sorority president. On dream-merit alone, I fully support and endorse your campaign. Best of luck!

Carrie and I will be doing Credentials tomorrow, since we're not running for National Delegates - you have my endorsement, annie.

How to win, the elenchos way: Everybody who dares to oppose you SUCKS.

Behave? We want to see pictures of you hanging naked from the rafters with a bottle of Champagne in your hand, pouring it on Wlf Blitzer's head.

Tastefully blurred-out, Survivor-style, of course.

Good luck! We await your reports with bated breath. You're the best.

Sounds like a great experience either way. Good luck!

You easily outshone the other candidates at the LD caucus, and I don't think we could ask for a better delegate out of tomorrow's caucus, either. Look forward to reading of your exploits in Denver!

outshone = outshined

Where's Big Sven been, anyway? Haven't seen his name lately. Or maybe I'm just not reading the right threads.

you have the alternates of the 43rd behind you!

(oops, i meant good luck, ANNIE! i was NOT trying to be ironic)

How can you not win? How? You would be perfect. Everybody knows.

Posted by Phoebe | May 17, 2008 2:14 AM

You go bring it, Annie. I've been quietly cheering you on all this primary season.

Posted by Tina | May 17, 2008 12:56 PM

While annie did well in counts, she didn't get one of the very few Obama female delegate positions ... but the tally showed a pretty good showing for her.

Posted by Will in Seattle | May 18, 2008 12:44 AM

Annie, you are a classy lady and I hope you stay involved in party politics.
