Spoilin' to spoil
My good friend Bill and I were talking this morning about being political spoilers.
Of the current POTUS election, I know little that I can hang my hat on, beyond this:
1. I don't want any of the viable candates from either party elected.
2. I don't have much choice in the matter-- one of them will be elected.
3. The Republican party choice is basically decided.
4. The Democratic party choice is completely up in the air.
5. I have personal distaste for Hillary Clinton that goes deeper than my distaste for Barack Obama.
6. I'm unimpressed with McCain's credentials as a conservative.
Really, it's probably all the same to me-- call them vanilla or chocolate or strawberry-- I don't want a taste. But I know that I don't want a turd sandwich, and that means that I don't want Hillary Clinton to be an end candidate.
I think that Obama needs to be the Democratic candidate.
I think that I need to vote in the Democratic primary.
On March 4th, 2008, I am going to hold my nose, march right into my local poll, and vote for Barack Obama as the Democratic nominee for President Of The United States.
This means that I need to register as a Democrat.
So be it.
There ain't much difference, these days, anyway. (Sigh.)
