Happy Chinese New Year!

Chinese New Year in Balbriggan.

Obama's got MO!

Like literally, he got MO. He also seems to have momentum - we'll see how he does over the next few weeks. Then it's on to... Pennsylvania? Pennsylvania will matter in a presidential primary?

Primary Day final

A victory pint in The Hamlet.

Primary Day #9

Obama voters appeal to all ages.

Primary Day #8

RTE setting up. The journalist for RTE, Ailbhe Conneely, is the only one who wouldn't give me a preference. She's staying objective.

Primary Day #7

The photographers in action.

Primary Day #6

UCD students for Hillary.

Primary Day #5

The press invades. I've been polling them and they seem to be for Hillary.

Primary Day #4

Voters in action!

Primary Day #3

DCU is here interviewing voters and volunteers. By the way Americans should make sure to register for the general election at VoteFromAbroad.org. There are also Congressional and Senate primaries for some races. In particular Illinois and Maryland voters should look into whether they can vote for Donna Edwards or Mark Pera (you'd need to rush on this one - that's today!).

Primary Day #2 (press gaggle)

The press is visiting. Brian from the press association in the foreground. So far none of them will say who they'd vote for.

Primary Day #1

Morning at the Irish polling station.

Obama-mania and Super Tuesday

So in about 12 hours I'll be casting my Democratic Primary vote in the Democrats Abroad Primary. So who to vote for? In the end this is the candidate I find inspiring (note, that's from his speech after he lost New Hampshire). I'm cynical enough not to fully believe, but I have hope. Lots of big name endorsements for Obama recently, but this one is interesting. I'll be volunteering at the DA Ireland polling station tomorrow at O'Neill's Pub on Suffolk St. in Dublin.

Superbowl

Good game, bad result (for this Pats fan). But for those of us overseas who missed the ads the Superbowl is famous for, fear not. CNN has them up and their own ratings for them.
