Great post. You should write the "serious" stuff more often :-)

On a related side note... I just saw An Inconvenient Truth for the first time this weekend and now I'm so irritated that Gore lost to Bush in 2000 that I've been crabby ever since. What a total waste of the last 8 years. Bleh.


I watched the debates on Saturday night and was disappointed by all the fluff and rhetoric. If the candidates can't even be bothered to give Charles Gibson a straight answer, what makes me think they'll be willing to give women bloggers anything more specific? Frankly, the most I'd expect would be a "there, there" and a pat on the head.

I love American politics. Almost makes me want to be an American.


I'd vote Obama. Maybe. Then again, Edwards isn't bad either.

But I'd totally let Bill cop a feel. Rawr.


I was going to make a comment about how I can't believe Bill actually does it for you in a pitter-patter kind of way...but then I remembered one of my most inexplicable crushes. It's Ari Fleischer. No lie. I think he is unbelievably sexy. So now I realize I really can't begrudge you your thing for Clinton.


Oh man, if I could get the candidates to sit down and give me an honest answer on a couple of questions, well lets just say they wouldn't like me. Teacher, and military wife, need I say more? Hum maybe this is something I should think on some more and blog about tonight.

I hate to say it, but when it comes down to the final two candidates (and I'm talking about in ANY election), I always feel like I'm just trying to decide between the lesser of two evils. I just don't trust 'em. None of 'em. I'm totally undecided right now. I don't feel like getting behind someone and then seeing them off the ticket in a few months, leaving me back at square one.

But I totally agree with you on all candidates missing the boat when it comes to getting women bloggers behind them. They simply don't understand the power of the Internets.

Regarding Binky's comment... Ari does it for me, too! :) Haha, I thought I was the only one!

Great post. And personally, an Edwards/Obama ticket would be my dream right now.

I have to say I wasn't too impressed with the debates on Saturday either. I didn't think that most of them really answered the questions. Sure they would say that they would do this or that, but they usually didn't give concrete examples of how they would do it. I must admit that I thought that Hillary's answers usually gave specific examples and I was impressed with that. I'm a democrat, but I'm still struggling with who to support. I don't think I'll ever find the perfect candidate because well people aren't perfect. However, the point of your post is an excellent one. If the politicians spent more time trying to address our concerns, I would probably be more convinced of which candidate would be the best.

Pssst. Bill Clinton makes my heart go pitter patter, too.

But I just don't like Hillary.

An Obama/Edwards ticket, though, that would be fantastic. I like Edwards, a lot, but my heart is with Obama.


Well, you know I'm an Edwards girl.

I've been struggling with this same thing. Over at DC Metro Moms we were trying to figure out how to get the candidates to meet with us. We got a meeting with Elizabeth Edwards and a couple of feelers from Biden, but polite refusals from everyone else.

If you figure it out, let me know. I feel like I'm banging my head against a wall!
