I Really Want Obama to Win

I just can't articulate it enough. He's so...much...better.

And I would've been happy with Hilary, too. I probably would have felt similarly, and been excited at the idea of a woman president. It's their policies that do it for me more than their sex, race, age, whatever.

But it is kind of fun to have young, hopeful Obama as a candidate. He started out in non-profits for Christ's sake, not running Daddy's friend's oil business into the ground. This is a man after my own heart. He works at making the world better. This is good.

And I pray that Americans aren't stupid enough to be taken in by the young, pretty, and female Palin. I mean, that's as important as the fact that Obama's got a pretty wife and he's kinda handsome. Palin is uuuuuultra conservative. She may be a woman, but she is not at all pro-woman. She's VERY pro-life. She's in favor of creationism. She'll continue this crusade against sexual health in America. She'll support the breaking down of GLBT rights. Noooooooooooooooooooooooo!

Oh yeah, and her 17-year-old daughter is pregnant. Because abstinence-only sex education WORKS. (Poor girl.)

And of course, McCain, who is the actual presidential candidate and the one that really matters, has not improved any for choosing her. He's just as bad when it comes to human rights for all citizens.

And I so very, very, very, very much want a president whose power doesn't make me fear for my rights every day. I said this to my friends when the Democrats took over the House. It's not that I think they're so great, it's just that having them in power makes me much less afraid. It's like a consistent threat has been removed.

I'm so hopeful and excited that Obama will win and the threat of a closed-minded, anti-feminist, anti-gay president will be gone for at least four years. I can't wait. Please vote! Please vote for him!
