Just watched the presidential debate, and I have to say I have a huge crush on John Kerry. I actually wasn't happy when he was chosen as the Democratic candidate, but I like many people thought, "Well he's the lesser of two evils, I'll get behind him." Now, though, after getting to hear him speak in the debates, I am simply amazed at how articulate he is, and how intelligent. I love his ability to point out things like how being certain doesn't mean being right. He has a really keen specific intelligence, able to cut through the big picture and point out how all the trees roots are growing together under the soil. He's such a more interconnected and integral mind than Bush and his administration. That makes me feel more at ease with him as the Democratic candidate than I was before. I feel like I can really get behind him now.
Let's hope my vote will actually get counted. I find it strange that I have to hope for that. Isn't it one of our "rights"? Shouldn't the precautions be taken to make sure that this "right" isn't taken away from me?
