I watched with much trepidation the Democratic debates tonight.
I was afraid that maybe I would see a car wreck.
But I was pleasantly surprised.
Personally I liked Joe Biden, and when he withdrew,
I had planned on supporting Edwards
at Minnesota's caucuses.
I did not think he would drop out of the race before then, but he did.
So I will be voting for Hillary in the binding ballot we will have.
The debate tonight helped me reinforce my decision, because of their stands on health care.
Hillary's plan is closer to Edwards, a Universal Single Payer plan that would cover everyone.
Barack's plan for lower premium costs, leaves too many people out of the loop.
But don't get me wrong, this is the first time I can ever remember
that I would be happy with either one of them on the top and hope the other will take a VP slot.
In contrast McCaine and Romney's debate found them sniping at each other.
I watched McCaine sitting there with a smirk similar to Bushes every time Romney opened his mouth.
McCaine was baiting Mitt all night long giving the Pundits lots of fodder.
February 5th Super Tuesday will be the first caucus in 25 years that I have not
been in charge of organizing it.
It has been great not having that pressure this year.
When I chose not to run for Chair of the of our Senate District in 2006, some very capable people came forward,
and are doing a great job.
So next Tuesday I will go to my precinct caucus, cast my vote for Hillary, and add my name to the Districts volunteer list.
I swing a mean hammer when putting up those lawn signs, and hey I might get a free t-Shirt.
