2008 election

Leave a comment

I haven’t had much to say on anyone’s blog about the 2008 election, and I’ll keep my thoughts about it here pretty simple:

1.  I’m glad that I’m able to see a campaign that presents a woman and an African American as serious candidates.  As children, we are taught that we can accomplish anything.  Many a child has dreamt of becoming the President of the United States.  This election reminds us that “there’s never been anything false about hope”.

2.  I really hope that after the primaries this week, the super delegates will decide which candidate they are supporting.  The longer this goes on, the less time the Democratic Party has to deal with Senator McCain and the Republican Party.

3.  I’m particularly disappointed by the way the media has used the 30 second sound bite from Rev. Jeremiah Wright to attack Senator Obama, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, and the African American church.

4.  I’m glad that this election has re-energized America about politics and the political process.  Other than in POLI 41, I don’t recall talking about super delegates to anyone.

So yeah…I’ll leave it at that…those are my thoughts on the 2008 Election.
