I'm the first to vote!

My democrat party ballot came in the mail yesterday. I used to only vote if I happened to be in the States during elections, but then the Bush-Gore debacle occured and all the expats realized how important every little vote is. When I was small my father used to keep his vote this HUGE secret. He absolutely would not tell us who he voted for. (I'm pretty sure he went republican all the way). I don't know why...Anyway, the only two candidates on the ballot that I liked are Hillary or Barack. I went with Barack. I really wanted to elect Hillary but she just doesn't convince me. I dont' know if Barack will be my candidate at the presidential elections, I'll have to see more on whoever his competition is and watch how he handles himself during the debates. I still think it's amazing that my choice was between a woman and an afro-american. We've made progress!

Hilary doesn't convince me either.... and... apparantely (according to Barack) we have a President of Canada, which was news to me!

I think you made the right choice.

You are just lucky you're thousands of miles away and don't have to listen to the minutiae day in and day out. Frankly, at this point, I'm sick of them all and don't want to vote for anyone. None of them have convinced me they are worth my vote.
