Wake Up Call

It's time to wake up!

I love politics! I follow the stats and players like some folks follow baseball. In spite of my enormous enthusiasm for a good game, the Democratic Primary has put me to sleep the last few months. Too many time-outs, too much stalling, too many trick plays.

But the playoffs are over!!

I was conflicted earlier in the season. Mitt Romney was my man, but the Repubs weren't my team. The Democrats were my party, but Hillary could take a walk. I chose my man over their woman.

Later in the game, when McCain took over, I was again conflicted. I had liked him when he was a renegade free agent but he dropped the ball. I was vastly impressed with Barack Obama, but I assumed he'd be knocked out of the ballpark. My hopes were raised with each new inning. Could he come from behind and win the game?

He hit a home run! His speech tonight made me cry. I'm ready for a whole new season.

I am a democrat too. Yay for Obama!

I'm also a Barack supporter. Someday I'd love a woman president but not Hillary.

I hope it is Barack or McCain not Hilery Clinten, The Indiana Jones #4 is sort of scary

Okay, when did my son have time to comment? That cracks me up. I just got off the treadmill - guess he was up here reading blogs.

I, too, cannot rally myself to support Hillary. I do like Obama, but find myself torn between him and Mccain, who I like. I think I'll probably swing towards Obama.

I love politics, too. Except when I hate it.

I also was won over by Obama and increasingly outraged by Hillary's tactics. She crossed the ethical line too many times for me.

I saw a bumper sticker that said, "Someone else for President." That's about where I stand. I'm ready to start my own party.

I love the sports analogy! - it has certainly been a horse race! It promises to be an interesting "play-off!"
