So in my lifetime we will have either a Woman Vice President or an African American President. All ideological issues aside, I am happy that my country has progressed to the point where this is possible and our young folks don't see it as a big thing.
I also can't generate the kind of feelings I had for the last election. I am a fairly far left liberal and I found then and continue to find the current administration utterly repellent, and profoundly un-American in their policies, positions, and tactics. I am a little discouraged by Mr. McCain's trending towards the right but I do think he is an honorable man and not someone I can rage against. Ms. Palin appears to be after a short investigation a person of good intent although clearly not representing my positions politically and again not at this point someone I can rage against.
It should be a very interesting 9 weeks going into the election.
