"Hot Sauce Of Hope On The Three Hillarys"by Taco Werewolf
18"x24" acrylic painting on Masonite
On February 10, 2007, Senator Barack Obama, in a patriotic tribute toAbraham Lincoln, announced his candidacy for President of United Statesin front of the state capitol building in Springfield, Illinois. It wasa cold winter day; the speech was soaring, uplifting and dramatic inits romanticism, sending chills down the spine of those who daredbelieve Obama had a chance of winning the election. His DemocraticParty opponent, Senator Hillary Clinton, however, announced hercandidacy on the internet,in a video where she spoke from the nice, cozy couch of her home.Hillary's "event" was needless to say very sterile and boring, lackinginspiration or romance. She almost seemed like she felt entitled, likeshe was the inevitable Democratic Party nominee and that theprimaries/caucases leading through Super Tuesday on February 5th, 2008,were but an annoying formality she had to endure before the GeneralElection.
But Barack won Iowa to everyone's astonishment! Andafter Super Tuesday he was still very much in the race. Then fromFebruary 5th through February 19th, 2008 he went on a relentless,blistering winning streak, overcoming Hillary in ten straight primariesand/or caucases, creating a lead in pledged delegates that wouldeventually prove insurmountable for Clinton. By the time she reboundedwith wins in Ohio and Texas, she was already damp from Obama's zestyhot sauce. But which Hillary was it? Was it the icy, detached and rigidHillary of the early campaign when she thought she already had thenomination in her pants-suit pocket and didn't have to really work forpeople's votes? Or was it the misty-eyed, sensitive and emotional"human" Hillary who broke down after her loss in South Carolina? Maybeit was the gas-tax-holiday-pandering, populist whiskey-drinking Hillarythat began to emerge during her campaigning in Pennsylvania? Eitherway, all three Hillarys were completely DROWNING in Obama's "Hot Sauceof Hope" by the time Indiana and North Carolina had their say on May6th, after which NBC's Tim Russert so correctly declared, "It's over,folks! We now have an OBAMINEE!"
