getting closer

October 29, 2008 - Meg Alexander
Election day is nearly here, and I feel like a kid at Christmas. It's been a long time since I voted for a presidential candidate who won, but I feel like this is the year. I was a die-hard Hillary supporter, and as such, I found myself reluctantly tagging along behind the Obama enthusiasts when he won the party's nomination. He just seemed too confident, too self assured, too smooth. But now ... I have to admit, I too am excited about Obama becoming president, particularly when contrasting him with the McCain/Palin camps. Don't get me wrong. I like McCain, as much as I can like someone I've never met and never will. Politically, I don't always agree with him, but quite often, I did. (That's right, did. I had a lot of respect for him until he started pandering to everyone and my mother in an attempt to win this election. And his choice for VP? Ugh.) So if McCain loses on Nov. 4, I may shed a tiny tear for the man. His tenacity is to be admired, and I've always had a soft spot for the underdog. But unfortunately for him, that isn't enough to earn my vote.
