Hey, no complaining down there my Yankee friends!
I'm as cynical as the next humanoid, but I'm feeling some hope in the Land of the Free (or at least the lowest price possible). If I was living there, I think I'd hitch my horse to someone (Obama probably) and get to work. There is hope in the air as well as hype.
What do you think?
If Obama gets the nomination for the Dems, what group of people will vote for McCaine?
The same is to be said about Clinton.
It's a tricky business with only a two party system.
The excitement (and hope) from our south of the border friends is catching. I'd be voting for Obama.
The Democrats of today in the United States are the Wingnuts of Yesteryear.
I "hope" you are correct, however.
Seraphine - I know we're all wondering, but do you think either of them would accept second spot?
Zee - maybe with the Republicans self-destructing and the Bush failure, the nation is ready to go beyond race and gender.
Beth - I haven't looked at Mercer's blog but will! He's so funny... and insightful.
Fairlane - you a cynic???? You do have a certain true love thing in one post and you do believe fully in skewering everything false... you're no cynic. Hype is there for sure, but the old 'who will be worse?' question is worth asking too. More of the Republicans? Yuck.
I'm not certain Hillary would take second chair on an Obama/Clinton ticket however.
I surprised myself by making sure I voted in the primary this time around. In the past, that hasn't been a priority for me. I guess I was a bit more excited about the possibilities?
long time no blogging.. well, not browsing or posting myself.
I have to tell you, (this Canadian, not even by birth but by choice..) that I told my (American) husband that if Obama became President, I'd apply for citizenship. On the whole, the two party system sucks and I am a big believer is a combined libertarian/Independents/Progressive Democrats/moderate Reps 'revolution' would/could lead to a federal clean up of sorts. No two party but more than that. Getting rid of special interests by way of electoral and campaign reform that none of the two party people will touch with a ten foot pole. First everyone needs to get together realizing that they have a bottom line commonality. Yep, I'm working on that strategy right now hehe. Anyhoo.. no worries..I'd still be Canadian. Dual citizenship how nice.
Anyway..I better go back to the sick child that's been couped up..I'd rather give her the heave ho and make her go to school but barking coughs don't look too good now do they???
take care Gary..I'd love to go canoeing in BC one day in one of the many pretty lakes in the mountains..sigh..someday perhaps..
