My Election Experience Update

It’s Monday and the election is tomorrow. I still need to review all the amendments on the ballot and the candidates for the other races. I’m finding that getting information on amendments is a little tricky and requires some more digging.

I wanted to note that in terms of McCain and Obama representatives that solicit for your vote, I’ve gotten the following results:

Obama:

  • 1 person who has come up to me personally asking for my support of Obama. This was an Obama volunteer.
  • 1 door hanger left on my door.
  • 4 phone calls for Obama, one from George Lopez.
  • No emails.

McCain:

  • No one has come to my house. No one has called. No emails about it.

Palin for 2012:

  • No one has come to my house. No one has called. No emails about it. She may be waiting for after Tuesday to start.

FYI, I registered independent. I did the true maverick move. Here’s why. I’m not too crazy about either party, but I tend to lean more towards the Democratic side. I tend to find Republicans cater more towards corporate greed and Democratics don’t have enough of a push to get things done at times. I prefer the avenue of “the best person for the job, no party bias”.

Getting this many Obama responses from the campaign, especially for my neighbor is not all that surprising. I live in a highly populated minority area, that’s low to middle class. The more surprising part is that lack of McCain representation. I’m not seeing it… at all.

Politics is amazing. Clinton aide sounds like a cry baby.

I just came across this news article through news.google.com titled “Edwards’ Cover-up Cost Clinton the Nomination”. The article talks about what one of Clinton’s aides feels was a deciding factor in Clinton not receiving the nomination, that Edwards didn’t come clean in time about his extramartial affair. Well shit, you got beat by someone who hid a lie, during a time he was trying to campaign. He did something that Clinton’s own husband did, lied about an extramartial affair.

How about the fact that Clinton didn’t convince enough voters that she was the right choice for the nomination.  I think that’s the issue. Clinton has been planning for this candidacy ever since she left the White House in 2000. Someone doesn’t just up and move to NY, to then try and become a senator for “shits n giggles”. Your home base is Arkansas, why didn’t you go back there, and be a senator for that state, if you the voters would pick you. Because you tried to make the best moves to get back into the White House, by gaining a broader fan base.

I knew this was Clinton’s strategy from day one, despite all the denials. Now, one of your aides wants to complain about hiding a secret, and your aide wants to use that as another excuse for you losing. Please, stop the insanity.
