hope

I don't know about you, but knowing that there will be an early spring gives me hope. That and the fact that there is a glut of good Democratic candidates for the next presidential election makes me feel tingly and giddy and puts a big smile on my face. With apologies to anyone who might read this who is a Bush fan, but I am counting the days.

I have to say though, ANYONE else is going to seem so refreshing, so intelligent, so much safer. I feel like we've been in the backseat of some frat boy's car on a Saturday night. Mom always told us not to get in, call for a ride home if we needed one, but we didn't want to wake anyone up, and now it's 4:00 in the morning and he's gone from throwing a few beer cans out the window and yelling at sleeping cows to driving with his feet while he guzzles tequila with one hand and fires off an uzi with the other, all while smokin' a doobie, singing "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue" at the top of his lungs.

But the dawn is on the horizon, if we can just hold on, the good guys are on our tail, they're setting up a road block and this country might see the daybreak yet. In the meantime, it's not over yet. Let's keep our eyes open so we can remember where we've been, so that we'll never, EVER do this again.

Yes! YES! Yes.

And can I just add, not because it's necessary relevant or appropriate, but because I find myself blurting it out to anyone who will listen, including the slow-moving and slower-witted woman working the register at Target this evening, that I'll be ten rows away from Bill Clinton on Thursday night? I AM SO EXCITED. Intelligence, wit, gravitas, charm: quite the contrast to our current leader, no?

I'M SO JEALOUS! I miss him so much. He's coming to our area too, and I'm hoping to get tickets to hear him speak.
I have to say, though, while I think Hillary is super smart, I'm pretty disappointed in her stance on the war. But I think she has the brains and wit for the office.
Also, I heart Barack. Soooo smart and winning. Isn't it fun to think about getting this country back?!
