The political conventions are over and I think we can all agree the DNC was more successful than the RNC. Sure, we had fewer police/ protester confrontations and more respectful crowds than the RNC. But more importantly, we had way better celebrities than the Minnesotans had.
And though I’m not as political as I probably should be, I did watch the DNC coverage religiously and tuned into the RNC coverage for as long as my stomach could handle. I have to say, this upcoming election has mobilized me in a way no other election ever has before.
Barack Obama truly seems to be for the people, evidenced by the fact that, post-law school, he took lower paying jobs to revitalize the inner cities of Chicago when he could have gone the way of the rich, powerful and corporate. He’s obviously an eloquent speaker. The crowd he draws with his international appearances proves that he is well-respected the world over and would vastly improve the USA’s social standing within the international community. Clearly, he’s intelligent and would surround himself with an intelligent, capable cabinet. And I’m all for giving a smart guy a crack at the White House again. That’d be a fun shift, I think.
I mean, I hear the arguments about his having “too little experience to lead,” but let’s be honest, here; Sarah Palin? Come on. John McCain is, what, a hundred and twelve years old? Give or take? Obviously, there is a very real possibility that his antique ticker is gonna give out and Sarah will take over.
Sarah freakin’ Palin!!! With all her profound experience as… what? Governor ?
Alaska, you guys!!!
How is that better at all?! It’s not.
