I can't believe how interested I am in the primaries. (Meaning: I have actually been clicking on the links when I seem them instead of the latest Britney flesh-bombs.) I suppose there hasn't been such an array of diversity, from political to cultural, since... never. I mean, even ole' Shaun Groves has found himself a candidate. And that is a miracle.
So with that being said, someone help me out here.
I just can't vote for Hillary.
I'm trying to figure out why. I've already gone through the obvious ones: Woman, Married to Bill, blah blah. And yes, those things invariably play some part in my decision process but overall, I am ashamed to say that I am hopelessly mediocre when it comes to knowing the issues and what each candidate really stands for. But don't give me that "You just wouldn't vote for a chick" line. I would soooo vote for a woman. I'd vote for my mom in a heartbeat. She's funny, intelligent, (always wins at scrabble and trivia pursuit) incomparably astute when it comes to knowing how the mind of man works, and she's not about to be run over but anyone, man or woman. If you knew my dad then you'd know that my mom could be no pushover. She'd kick royal rump as Mrs. Presidentella. (What are we going to call Hillary and Bill if she gets elected? Mrs. President and ... First Man? First Mate? First Dude? I prefer First Goofus.)
Anyways, that's why I am not ruling ole' Crock-tears-Jesus-helped-me-not-kill-Bill Hillary out altogether. I'm willing to give her a shot if anyone has some redeeming words to speak on her behalf.
In other news... I just found out that Obama's middle name is Hussein. It would be a twisted irony if the leader of the free world's middle name matching Saddam's last.
