Fear of Pyrrhic Victories

One of the worst things about politics is one never knows if a campaign might end up being a Pyrrhic Victory. One so dearly won that we would have been better off not to have fought for it. But what can we do other than to proclaim the right as we see it? I dearly, dearly hope that whoever wins the American Presidency in 2008 will do a good job. I fear, of course, that someone good might get the nomination, but be so bloodied that he or she might then lose the election. Or that I might be wrong about fearing this. I doubt my own decisions both ways.

I will be going to caucus here in Colorado in a few days. I'm doing it for Barack Obama and I hope that my humble individual decision will be for the best, win or lose.
