The People I'm Voting for Today

Senator Barack Obama for United States President:

Because he has the audacity to Hope.

Tommy Brewer for Illinois State's Attorney:

Because he wants to and has the know-how to actually bring real justice to the attorney's office. By that, I mean he doesn't want to prosecute someone to the fullest extent of the law when evidence goes against the verdict and wants to put an end to corrupt policies. And I believe he can do it.

Incumbent Iris Martinez for Illinois State Senator:

Because the political machine wants her out - so she must be doing something right.

God help us all.

  1. I voted this morning. And I too voted for Obama. I was a big John Edwards supporter until he dropped out, not just because he used U2's Pride (in the name of love) as his campaign song.

  2. it's my pet theory that people supported Edwards b/c they thought he'd stand a better chance against whoever was coming out of the gate for the republicans. whereas the overwhelming majority of dem voters so far pushed for fairly dramatic change, and change now (i.e., a woman and a black man).

    i would count myself in the second class there. do you think there's any validity to that?

    btw, what are you noticing out there in conservative So. Illinois country?

  3. I just got back from voting... Let's just say that I went the "dramatic change" route.

  4. you know, one thing i've heard today is that more 'born-again' christians are voting for Dems than Reps. something like 40 to 25 (about a third are undecided).

    personally, among other reasons, i think we didn't like our image being so tarnished.
