Yesterday I found myself engaging in one of my favorite pleasures - sleeping in until around 8:30/9, then leisurely eating breakfast while I waited for Meet the Press comes on. I spent a few years not really watching Meet the Press - the product of working a lot of Sunday brunches - but have been trying to get back into it since I was put on Sunday nights at the restaurant.
I love it. And I'm starting to get really excited about the election. For the last few months, I've been living my life in the foregone conclusion that Barack Obama would not win the Democratic nomination, that it would be Hillary, and that this was too bad on a lot of levels - that it emphasizes the monarchy-like way we do politics in America (Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton), that she's such a politician (a thermometer, not a thermostat), and that I wasn't sure if she could win in the general election. And I don't mind her that much; she's a smart lady who would do a good job. But I just think there are much better candidates available on the strong Democratic side.
And now that Barack has some distance in his lead in Iowa, I think his candidancy might be possible. If he wins Iowa, and picks up some momentum in the five days until New Hampshire, he could really win this thing. But the debates in early December are going to be key. I might have to figure out a friend with cable so I can watch them.
It's getting exciting.
