I DID think the presidential race would be close enough to be more reminiscent of the George Bush/Al Gore election of 2000, but it didn't turn out that way. But all of these California races I've been watching have been see-sawing back and forth, and it will probably be another day, if not longer, before we know the outcomes.
I made a point of being away from the TV this evening; I didn't return home until the 11 p.m. news came on. I knew I'd get nothing accomplished if I was home.
Seriously, I'm not that political. I really don't like discussing politics or even thinking about politics. In fact, I ignore the campaigns as much as possible and put off thoroughly reading and weighing the ballot measures until I know it's time to get serious and pay attention. Why, then, am I so invested in watching the outcomes on TV on election night? Maybe it's a little like watching a sporting event and not being able to walk away until the game's over.
