I don't really like either option, to be quite honest. I disagree with Obama on a number of moral issues that are pretty important to me, but I can't in good conscience vote for Palin. I know, I know, I'm not actually voting for Palin, but McCain's campaign is so tainted by her that when I think of him, all I see is her. It's not that she's a woman, it's that the thought of her running our country if the need arises scares me. I don't think she's qualified, and I don't know her husband well enough to trust him. What does a First Husband do?? We've never had one. Of course, McCain isn't guaranteed to die while in office, but he's no spring chicken either. It bothers me. She bothers me. Call it a gut feeling...women's intuition...the voices.
Have you decided who you will vote for? You don't have to tell me your choice, but I just wonder if there are many others out there who are in the same situation as I am. My husband is just as confused on which one he will support, so I can't even let him persuade me one way or the other. Some people pick one single issue and vote completely based on that. I can't do that. I'm a bigger picture type of person, at least when it comes to this.
Maybe when I get to the voting place on Saturday a little light bulb will come on in my head and the right choice will just come to me. Maybe not and I'll be forced to do eenie-meenie-miney-moe.
On a not-related note...we watched Wheel of Fortune last night. It's some sort of teen-best-friend week and those annoy me greatly. One of the girl's actually asked Pat, "Can I buy, like, an A?"
