A Bit of HopeThis video has been pretty viral, but it was one of my favorites of the political season. I'm going to vote in a few minutes for Obama. I hope that it's a landslide. These last eight years have been pretty tense. With Clinton it was all Sex, Money and Rock N' Roll, with the Republicans it's been War, Death and Kenny Chesney. It think the world needs a break.
Even my father who has been pretty much a Republican his whole life is voting for Obama, I think... He told me Sunday he was still undecided, but he wants to have the war end in Iraq and McCain will continue it. As my mother said when the Iraq war started, "Even when I was a little girl, we knew never to go poking a stick into that vipers nest in the Middle East."
Eight years ago I didn't vote, I got so complacent after 8 years of Clinton that things would stay the same, that we never could go back to the Republicans after the years of Reagan/Bush I. I've never forgiven myself.
So get out there and vote... Peace...
