It's Super Tuesday and dammit, i'm actually going to have to declare a party affiliation so i can vote in the primary. I don't even really love that guy. I would just rather it be Obama than Hillary and the polls show the race getting tighter, so my vote might actually make a difference. So here i go. Ugh.
And those are just the things off the top of my head. I know. Hillary says she's for universal healthcare and Obama's only committing to getting kids insured. Well, first off, no way she's going to get universal healthcare (not that she shouldn't try for it) because that would be too "socialist" for the average person to handle - unless they are personally facing a challenge with health care costs. Rules always change when it's you who's affected. Second, mebbe i'm being too cynical, but i really don't believe that Hillary Clinton is going to be out there fighting the pharmaceuticals and insurance companies for us. They represent too much money.
So is it fair to judge her based on my gut feeling with no concrete argument to back it up? Nope. I have no way of knowing that Obama's going to be any better. But that doesn't change those 4 things i've listed at the top, the Iraq thing being a huge issue for me.
And let's face it. The sad truth is we are at the point where we vote for the person we hate the least. We don't expect to get a chance to vote for the candidate we actually like and support. It's down to the lesser of the two evils.
Who loves politics now?
Btw, I'm totally avoiding Kos because he's ALWAYS wrong and i really can't handle the emotional rollercoaster. If you have a stronger constitution, go for it. Give me a summary of the bullet points.
