...for my candidate of choice. A lot of people have been sharing their politically inclined posts lately so I thought I might share my thoughts as well. As you can see I'm an Obama supporter....and for the first time in my life I am excited for the upcoming election. I'm excited for the possibilities of change. The word has been flaunted throughout the campaign but I think this country is so ready for it.
After the Texas and Ohio primaries on the 4th I'm really nervous that Hillary is going to take after Bill and play "comeback kid" in this election. I still have the caucus results to rely on (which I proudly participated in). Here in Texas we do things our own way...of course :-) As Alex puts it, "it requires a degree in Quantum Physics to even begin to understand the cluster F$%#& of variables that are thrown into the Texas voting system." To put it simply, if you vote in the Texas primaries (considered early voting and lasts for a few weeks) you're eligible to vote in the Caucus....which basically counts your vote twice. Woop! They say we will have to patient for the results. However, I've received a slew of emails from other Obama supporters stating that dozens and dozens of precincts were overwhelmingly leaning towards Obama.
In the end, I just don't think Hillary will have a chance against McCain and I want to put our best candidate forward to get the job done. I'm sure everything will change as the weeks progress...hopefully in Obama's favor!
