2 vs 2
I have watched some of both of the National conventions. This is probably the only time I have done this. I am NOT a political person. In fact, I avoid conversations about at all costs, mostly because I don't know what either party stands for, so I have no intelligent thought to add to the conversation, and also because in my honest opinion I don't know if I believe politicians ever get anything accomplished without a lot of manipulation and arguing and I don't want any part of that! I am trying hard to be more educated on what each party believes. Obama is a great speaker, but I thought he was promising too much without any action plans. I don't see that he has the proven track record to really do anything great. I do admit, I was mesmerized by his charisma and eloquent presentation. Then I heard Palin talk- I really like her! Not because she is a woman and mom of 5, but I believe she is for people rather than politics and she values families and good morals. McCain is old! I tried to focus on what he was saying, but kept wondering how old he was and if he was about to collapse on the stage. However, I do appreciate his service in the military and his long run in service for this country. He has been through more than Obama- I don't know if that makes him the best choice, but I think I feel more comfortable with someone who has made plenty of mistakes already. Hopefully, he has learned from them and made changes. In the education world, I am surrounded with Obama fans. In the town we live in, it's rare to find a republican. Its rare in my family to find a democrat. I am being open minded to both right now and trying to think for myself, who I think the best choice is. So, don't ask me any political questions, because I still don't know how to intelligently engage in the conversation, but I can say that I am trying to learn more, so that I can make the best choice this November.
