But their voting record, platform, perceived electability and background should definitely also factor in. Unfortunately, no matter whom we elect, there are no guarantees that they'll be able to accomplish most of what we want them to.
I guess its the fact that he, in my opinion, was stealing from someone who ran for governor on RHETORIC and it has not shown iteself to be a good thing for the state.

If you are stealing from someone who was big on rhetoric, where does it leave you.

It bothers me. Maybe I will get over it. :O)

Politics is so petty. I honestly don't care who's stealing words from whom. Just talk about the issues and I'll forgive the rest.

I am heading to the Kennedy Library for the day tomorrow. It has been a while since I made my pilgrimage.

I am rather excited because Muhummad Ali has been a hero of mine since childhood. His gloves are on display there.

This will be my ten year olds first trip to the library. I am so excited to be teaching her this history.

Maybe going there will restore my faith in politics again.
