I really try not to talk about politics on my blog because I'm not interested in engaging in a political argument, but I think it's probably safe to say I'm really sick to death of all the election hoopla, and most of you would agree with me. Here in California, we have Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown running for governor, both of whom have deep enough pockets to bombard us with almost constant campaign ads. Add to that all the other races, and it's nuts. Hubby and I went to dinner Monday night and came home to THREE voicemail messages soliciting our votes for different candidates.
I think all of the negative campaigning does more harm than anything else. I know that hearing so much negativity from all sides makes me feel rather hopeless about the idea that there's anyone out there who could be a good leader. Sometimes I wish I was 18 again and still believed the "right candidate" would make all the difference.
At least the end is in sight and it will all be over in the morning. If I wasn't so jaded about the whole process, I'm sure I'd be excited about getting up in the morning and feeling like the entire campaign was just a bad dream.
