Fun With Politics

Today I found out that Obama has picked Sen. Biden as his running mate.

Yeah, I know that this was probably yesterday's news, but I've had more pressing matters to attend.

At any rate, I can't say that I was surprised. At many levels, this was a logical decision.

It also got me thinking how I am going to vote this November. The truth is, I have no idea yet. I am still pondering about both candidates, and trying to figure out which one would be the most acceptable choice.

Oh, my vote for Congressional choices will remain Democrat. There is no doubt about it. But I think that November 4 will find me staring at the screen in the voting booth, weighing in the pros and cons of the Republican and Democratic Presidential candidates.

Wow. I just realized that this makes me an "Undecided." That also means that I have suddenly become one of the most important people in this election, along with thousands of others like me. The possibilities are endless.

I will be receiving flowers and chocolate at my humble abode. I prefer my roses red, and my chocolate dark. Don't send me chocolate with filling unless you want me to go vote for Voldemort. I hate chocolate with filling.

PS. Almonds and nuts in my chocolate are okay. Hershey's with almonds are my guilty pleasure.

And now, you know.

My father worked off and on with Biden professionally for a long time (I think a decade or two) and thinks very highly of him. According to him, Biden is "one of the good guys".

(In my family, the "good guys" are the ones in favor of responsible spending, alleviating taxation on the lower and middle classes, funding education adequately, and preserving the environment. YMMV)

Actually, I like Biden. I thought the choice made a lot of sense. :-)

Eh, if you're having trouble deciding which presidential candidate to vote for, just remember that you're actually (among other things) voting for supreme court justices.

Personally there's no chance of me voting for McCain even without the SCOTUS issue, but I realize I may be juuuust a bit more liberal than you.

I know. There are too many iterations out there. And none of the candidates has yet convinced me that they will do what I would like them to do. :-p

Don't be that person.
Come-on you know you want to vote for the same candidate I like...

No, don't question it. Just close your eyes and touch the screen. What's the worst that could happen? An economy in shambles, war with Iran, Russia, or China...

I know what's best for you.
