I have a few issues with the run for the presidency this time around‚Ä¶ one of which is having a person I can get excited about running. Barack and McCain look like your typical politicians, although they differ on policy I feel like they are very similar in that respect. I see Obama as someone making me promises he doesn‚Äôt intend on keeping just to get in office and without respect for the position (much like Clinton). McCain seems like he would treat the position of president with respect and maybe even be good at it, but if he is such a maverick why have I not seen anything change before now because of him.
With all of this comes the total disconnect with me as a voter, but that has all changed thanks to Sarah Palin. This woman excites me because my first impression of her is ‚Äúreal‚Äù. I feel like I already know her. She reminds me of my mother-in-law which despite her overwhelming love for soccer I respect her greatly.
Sarah Palin has changed this election and I will tell you why,
1) she has more experience than Obama and she can stand up for herself when given the chance.
2) she is a great speaker and out does both canidates in this race
3) she seems like a real maverick with a backround to prove it.
4) she has chosen people to serve with her based on their character, not their party affiliation.
5) she is smart, and well put together
5.5) she is hot! (I guess this is the sexist in me coming out)
That fact that she hasn‚Äôt been around D.C and beltway politics is a good thing. She was mayor of Wasila, Alaska and she defeated an incumbent to get there. Then she won the governor‚Äôs office and beat an incumbent of her own party. She was in charge of the Alaska National Guard. She turned in the chairman of her own party for shady dealings and got him fined 12 g‚Äôs. She is a lifelong NRA member, snowmobiler, and she has hunted moose‚Ä¶ SO Sarah Palin for president!
No really.¬† She has united the people, both conservatives and republicans, because we are not the same. I feel like I can vote for McCain because he just proved that he can make good decisions. Maybe now we can see a real woman, in a very respectable position, lead with integrity and understanding, and not just with emotions. I didn‚Äôt see this coming, but I am glad it has, and will continue to watch her closely for obvious reasons and see if this really is going to be a worthy team to lead this great country that others, including G.W., have made it!
Now go and vote‚Ä¶ or at least have an educated opinion.
