Politics Thursday

I suppose it only makes sense to share what's been very much on my mind the last couple of days.

If you haven't watched this speech, and you have a spare half hour, sit down with a cup of something good and watch a politician actually take a risk. It's a thing to behold.

And yes, I'm totally in the tank for Obama. But let's not argue about it. It's depressing watching former allies on the liberal blogs rip each other to shreds over this issue. If you're for Clinton, great. We can agree to disagree.

You're so right on...the ripping to shreads of one's hand that feeds you isn't always the best way to make it right. I can't see that we need any more separation in this nation.

Content aside, it's so refreshing to listen to an educated speaker! I can't stand to even listen to 5 minutes of Dubya!

Hi - I had a lot of posts to catch up on! Always interesting to read what you have to say. Your new houseguest looks like a gorgeous dog - hope you find a home soon. Dems have to get it together - 4 more years of Republicans in the WH is too scary to even think about.

Are you still in the snow there? We're melting off, but tonight it's coming down again. Yargh - I need some garden and kayak time!

Agreed, everyone.

We're up in Montana, Kris, and tons of snow has melted since we were here 3 weeks ago. Then I woke up this morning to...snow falling from the skies. Sigh. I'm long past the time of year where I find it charming. I'm ready for the bluebonnets and the balsamroot in the front yard and on the mountain.

It's snowing like CRAZY here! Yesterday I swear it was like 70. That's Chicago for ya. The thing about Obama is.. He's MUCH cuter in person! I saw him at this political dinner when I was catering. He's use to being stared at.
