Okay, so two politically-oriented topics in as many posts, though this one will also remain (with some effort) non-partisan. After all, it IS voting day.

I just wanted to share with you my relief at this day having finally arrived. At this point I just want it over with. I didn’t believe either one of our primary presidential candidates a gem to begin with, but after hearing them bicker playground-style for the last few (several?) months I find myself even more disappointed in our choices. Come tomorrow, no more campaign ads…it’s almost hard to imagine. While waiting to cast my ballot this morning, an older gentlemen was commenting on how this was the most heated debate he has ever known, and how both sides got so dirty that neither can claim to have clean hands. I couldn’t agree more; what a spectacular example these two have set.

One thing is for sure: I have never seen this country so divided. I can only hope that when all is said and done the “losing side” can put the election behind them and we can take positive steps into the future. Though today promises to be anything but predictable, if I had to guess I’d say G.W. by a smidgen (just thought I should get it on record). Either way, all signs point to this being one exciting election.
