This Time My Vote Counts

... and that's kinda intimidating.

For the first time the California Primary is a part of Super Tues.
Usually by the time our primary comes around the candidate is clear.
Not this time. Hillary Clinton and Barrack Obama are basically tied and the daunting thing is that for the first time: I have more than 0 excellent choices, in fact, I have more than 1 excellent choice. Argh. I DON'T KNOW!!! I've been an Obama fan for months and have really enjoyed watching his extraordinary campaign, but Clinton has more experience and in a perfect world I'd have Hillary for 8 years and then Barrack for another 8.

But the thing is that Obama could create a revolution Right Now, and that's really important since our country's reputation has really been trashed by the Bushies. Also, for reasons that I will never understand, there are a lot of people in this country who hate Hillary and the Clinton dynasty. There are Republicans who can see voting for Obama, but will lie down in front of a train before supporting another Clinton. I don't know why and I don't think I'll ever know why, but if the country can get behind Obama then so be it.

A year ago I wanted a bumper sticker that said: "Obama-Clinton or Clinton-Obama in '08"
There's a chance that I may get my way (yikes). While I'm still wishing, can we have John Edwards as Attorney General? And Dennis Kuchinich as something pretty high up too.
