This Post Is Not About My Girls

I don't usually post commentary, political or otherwise (except the occasional PSA), because that's not the point of this blog, but since our primary isn't until May and by then my vote most likely will just be superfluous, I'm going to say this. It's okay if you disagree; it's also okay for you to comment that you disagree. I'll publish any appropriate comments, but I probably won't be debating. So here goes:

It would be totally cool to have a woman president. I think Hillary Clinton would be a pretty good First Woman President. However, now that McCain has "clinched the Republican nomination" and Ralph Nader has announced that he's running, if people don't want another 4 years of a Republican executive, we need to let Obama pick his vice president and get on with campaigning for November. He is the more electable Democrat because he's a man. Don't scold me for saying it. Think realistically about Americans, and I bet you'll agree. A woman won't win against McCain, no matter how good she'd be at the job.

There. I've said it.

While I agree a woman would have a difficult time beating McCain I'm not all that sure Mrs. Clinton is the best woman for the job... much less the right PERSON. Then again I have issues stemming from her husband's time in office that I can't seem to separate her from.

Honestly, I don't like any of the 3 we have to pick from. I was excited early on in the campaign season. I LOVED Edwards. Unfortunately,the press didn't want to give him as much attention as Mrs. Clinton or Mr. Obama and many had a hard time separating him from his VP bid with Mr. Kerry. I have no one to vote for... and view all 3 "Evils" as equal. I'll most likely vote Democrat no matter what though. 4 more years of a Republican may well bring about the Apocolypse for our country.

I was very fond of Edwards, too, but chose Obama over Clinton. Because that's who my race was. And I felt like Obama was the better candidate, mostly on gut, as in, I believe in him more. That's all there is to it. I am amused that my right-wing super-Christian friends have now wondered out loud if he is the Antichrist (hello, wouldn't that mean we've had the rapture, which, in your (and my) belief means that we won't be here??)... but Husband also points out that many, many foreign countries will not respect a woman in a leadership role, and it is important to acknowledge that. SO, thus acknowledged.
