Hillarack

I have never before been so totally captivated by a primary race and so completely ambivalent about it's outcome.

I'm longing to have a candidate. I'm ready to rally around someone. I'm prepared to plaster my car with bumper stickers, pepper my lawn with yard signs, and pin campaign buttons on every jacket I own.

Hillary? Barack? Makes no difference to me. I'd love to have them both, but I'm happy to take either one.

Come on, Super Tuesday voters. Seal the deal and send me a candidate I can believe in.

I feel exactly the same way. It's almost a sick joke - hey here are two worthy candidates from two disenfranchised groups that have never had a snowball's chance in hell of getting elected - now pick one.

Sophie's Choice again.

Amen, sister. I took a poll last night by text messages of all my friends. To a "t" they are voting for Obama. I pulled the lever on Hillary. No reason. I wish I could care, believe, agree with all the enthusiasm. Call me cynical. No one person can get us out of this mess. Sigh.

Hilliary "bothers" me. So that was my deciding factor to go with Obama. Sad, huh?

M: I wish my guy was still in the race, so I'm glad we had options (OK, 20 on the ballot was a little silly).

No matter who gets the Nom, I'm already planning My Quadrennial November Election Party. Wish you could come again!

I'm holding my enthusiasm (and yes, I'm an enthusiastic supporter of good candidates) for a local race. A neighbor is running for state assembly and I'm thrilled!

We are on the same page. So much better then having to choose the lesser of 2 evils that has been the trend in past elections.
Very irritated at the polls today. Registered democrat for 22 years,vote "religiously" ( so I can %$itch!,called for jury duty yearly and had to do a provisional ballot.....grrrrrrrrrrrr.

Darn! When I started reading your post I was hoping you'd give me a reason to pick one over the other. I can't decide either. Which one is looking to the future when we have hundreds of thousands of autistic adults in our society? Which one believes insurance companies should be paying for treatment for autistic children?

Your first sentence is spot on.
