Don’t worry, this isn’t turning into a political blog, I’m just still on a primary high. I don’t call myself a Democrat, a Republican or any other political title. I have always been a big supporter of the theory that you should “vote for a person, not a party”, but times have changed. And I have to admit, it was a tough decision for me because I’m psyched with both Democratic choices. No matter whether Clinton or Obama wins, it’s a great time to be Democratic.
Originally, I wanted to vote for Hillary because I think she’ll be more apt to hit the ground running. There’s also the whole girl-power thing and let’s face it, I loved Bill. But I can’t deny that my heart sings for the change that Obama speaks. Our country begs for reasoned leadership.
You may not agree with me and that’s okay. I’ve never been much into sharing my political or religious beliefs on my blog, mostly because people usually visit my site for the off chance I’ll be writing about my boobs and let’s face it, I like people to like me so I stick to the normal topics like complaining about my gerbil-eaten uterus.
I guess my whole point is is that I want people to be aware of where the candidates stand on the issues and be as informed as possible to make educated votes. Vote for who you believe will be a good leader, and not because “my family has always been (insert party)” or “I was born (insert party)” or my personal favorite “my husband tells me who to vote for” – all of which make me want to stick a knife in my eye.
