What I really want to know is, who are you going to vote for and why? Let's try something new!!

Leave a comment with further information and I may decide to vote your way!

I went to see Hillary Clinton speak today, and I was really impressed with some of the things she said. I couldn't hear well because of where we were standing and the fact that my kids are kind of rambunctious. I'm hoping to be able to watch her remarks online tomorrow, if the kiddos cooperate and take a good nap.

I think Barack has a lot of positive things in his plan. I think that either he or Hillary would do a good job, honestly. I think that she has more international respect, but he has more vision.

In our primary I voted for Obama and split my delegates between the two.

Honestly, whoever ends up in the White House is going to have their work cut out for them.

You know all too well my reasons for voting for McCain but I'll take the opportunity to state them here in an attempt to bring more people to my viewpoint.

McCain is the most principled presidential candidate that I've seen and that means a lot to me. I don't agree with him on every issue but I believe that he has America's best interest at heart. To cite some examples, his stances on not torturing under any circumstance (unlike the moral relativism of the current administration), campaign financing reform to attempt to eliminate the below board funding of campaigns, and trying to end the reprehensible practice of earmarking.

I also think that McCain has the necessary experience to lead the country. I want someone who is going to get things done/completed in Iraq and Afghanistan, get the economy growing again, and restore the country's image and moral authority.

I also think it's hilarious when Howard Dean gets on the TV and tries to equate McCain to Bush and says that McCain would be a "Bush 3rd Term." It's harder to imagine two Republicans that are more different and McCain has very publicly put the Bush admin's feet to the fire on more than one issue.

Is he rough around the edges? You bet. But then again I've only met one sailor that the phrase "cusses like a sailor" didn't apply to.

I'm more than happy to discuss McCain in more detail with people but, as Brandon can attest, sometimes it takes a while to get a response from me on the issue.
