I am so excited for this election. Not just because I am not thrilled with George W. Bush, but because for the first time in my life politicians are reaching so many people, stirring so many on such a base level, giving hope to so many. Maybe this is how my mother felt about Kennedy, more that than the world was then as it is now in the midst of radical change. My political leanings are very liberal (GO OBAMA)...admittedly. However for the first time in my adulthood, I feel like neither candidate would be a disaster for us. McCain while not my favorite does have good points.
So last night I was giddy with excitement for the debate. In school I loved to debate, hell I still love to debate, but this was the first time in my life I was giddy over a presidential debate. I went to my best friends house to watch. She said she "watches debates like football". She does, it rocked. Someone else who loves that. Mental Sparing rocks. Eliminating antipathy rocks. I am so excited to see so many people previously so apathetic so excited about politics. Politics and Law have always jazzed me writing bills, making changes for the better, learning, bettering things...it is like crack (but not illegal).
