Oh man, I watched the democratic presidential candidate debate last night. Who the hell is this Mike Gravel guy? He had me ROLLING. Is this old coot serious? Well, I have to say, these things can be kind of boring sometimes, but this guy kept it live. Obama is still my favorite, although I really liked the way John Edwards came across, which is strange because I never gave him much thought. Hillary was ok too, I guess I won't cry if she or Edwards wins. I wouldn't have too much faith in the rest of the dem. candidates though, they all seem like they have a few issues that they are secretive or wacky about.

I'm still hoping Al Gore decides to run.

I like Al Gore (always have, even though we generally disagree on most issues) but I hope that doesn't happen. Because then he'll steal Obama's thunder and we'll likely end up with Clinton as president.

I don't think I could stand that. Not because she's a horrible person but because it would completely rule out any hope for a change in the pure partisan hatred that has solidified during the Clinton and Bush II years.

Plus, I'd just like to think that 230 years of American Democracy hasn't distilled the process down to the point that the only people we'll elect are people who lucked into a connection to a former president.

I expect I'll disagree with Obama 70% of the time but I'm still leaning towards him simply because he represents change of some sort (I'm not all dreamy eyed that he'll sweep the stables clean but he's relatively clean break from the existing machine).

That said, I refuse to watch any debates this early and while the joke candidates are still involved.

I wish Al Gore would run as Obama's vice president.
