Election Day 2008

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008 No comments

I was so glad to go vote today. I’m ready for all this to be over with. I went to the polling place about 10 minutes before the door opened at 7AM. The place where I was assigned to vote was a retirement home just a little way across town. There was already a long line forming and there wasn’t nearly enough parking. I got one of the last 2 marked spots. I was finished about an hour after I got in line. There was only 1 person checking off names and 1 of the machines was broken, so I guess it could have gone faster. From what I’ve heard there’s been a high turnout all over the city. The polling place down the street from me (not sure why I wasn’t assigned to that one) had so many cars on the side of the road that it was hard for me to get back home to get ready to do to work.

Anyway, I hope everybody votes today and makes the right choices. And if you don’t know what the right choices are, then you’re probably helpless j/k.


Politics Anyone?

I’m really starting to get excited about politics again. There’s a presidential election this year. Yay!!! I really haven’t been into politics much since the 2004 election. I guess I’m just ready for new leadership.   I’m glad that you’re moving on, Mr. President.

One good thing about Bush is that he may have made it possible for a woman or a black man to become President. Clinton and Obama don’t look so unappealing after him, do they? I think it would be cool to have our first woman or black president. I guess I like rooting for the underdog, but would either of them be an underdog against John McCain? I’m having a hard time choosing between those two as the Democratic nominee. I really hate to see either one lose and I doubt that either one would want to be Vice President. I could support either one of them as a presidential candidate.
