HELP I TALKED TO A GUY FOR TWENTY MINUTES AT ACDA ABOUT CHANGING THE SINGING CULTURE IN AMERICA AND NOW I AM DESPERATELY IN LOVE WITH HIM GODDAMN IT

I will not be here much for a week-ish because in five hours and forty-eight minutes, I ship out to Florida with my choir for a tour and then a trip for a few of us to the Southeast Regional ACDA meeting. I’m excited but I’m also exhausted so we’ll see how this goes. At least I’m all packed…let’s hope I don’t forget my phone charger this time!
I just want purple hair and financial stability.
But race is a central dynamic, and the outcome of the election will turn in large part on whether Alison Lundergan Grimes can appeal to white Democrats who don’t want to support an African-American. (Probably many of these voters are the same ones who love the state’s new health-care law but hate Obamacare.) It’s also a reality that is too uncomfortable for many observers to actually state.
One reason for Clinton’s popularity is that all ex-presidents tend to gain favor as they recede from the partisan infighting of day-to-day politics and position themselves as revered elder statesmen.
But the other reason Clinton could always compete in Kentucky while Obama never could is one that does not appear anywhere in the Post story: race.
