I didn't vote. I didn't even realize that it was Election Day until it was too late. I didn't think it would affect me the way it has. But I HATE not voting.
Anyway, obviously ya'll know this but history has been made. I will be watching Obama's 4 years with interest (I mention 4 because that's what he's elected for ... who knows what will happen? just so's you know it wasn't a prediction or anything). Not sure how I feel about him getting it-I would've voted for McCain/Palin. However, respect the position. That really bothered me when Clinton was in office and people would bash not just his policies/personal decisions but seemed to bash the office which he was presiding over. Bush too, though I didn't notice it as much because I just can't watch the news channels other than Fox and I usually don't watch Fox. And Rush will have plenty of fodder for the next 4 years. My first memory of driving in the car is of my parents listening to him and us begging them to turn on something more interesting. I am truly a Rush Baby.
And yeah, I just told you my political affiliations. Just so you know, I don't really care what party you belong to. I may disagree with you, I might debate a point or two, but in the end that's what's great about our country. We get to think what we want to think (hehe well, for the most part). My greatest hope for Obama/Mrs. Obama is that they actually do care for America and that their goal is to help not tear her down.
So that's the end of my first and probably last post concerning politics. I just don't get into it. I'm not a skilled debater and frankly it's a dividing issue so I'd rather not discuss it with my friends. And the whole I'm not a debater thing prevents me from getting into it with anyone else :D
