I’m so jealous right now. I so wish I lived in a state that was voting tomorrow. I would love, for once, to live in a place where the primary votes were decisive and not afterthoughts. I’m watching all the bloggers get excited about the Yes We Can video (and the upside to having teenagers? I DO recognize some of the people in the video—yay me!) and writing this and that about him and her and I’m just so excited for all these people whose vote will make a difference.
I’m jealous. But I’m also politically hopeful in a way I haven’t been since my husband and I spent our 2nd wedding anniversary at the arena in Phoenix as Bill Clinton and Al Gore joined hands on the big television screen and raised them over their heads in victory. I remember leaning over to my husband that night and yelling in his ear over the roar of the crowd–we may be looking at the next 16 years.
Don’t rest on hope. Vote if you can. For me, who has poll envy.
