I have never been to a caucus before (or, since we enjoy verbification around here, I have never caucused before). To be honest, I don’t particularly want to go tonight. I got about 4.5 hours of sleep last night. Apple is going through some kind of teething/virus-getting something that made him feel like he needed to be attached to my legs all morning. Raisin evidently cannot hear a word I say, because she keeps asking me questions and then saying “what?” after each answer.* It’s sloppy and snowy outside, and the caucus doesn’t start until 6:30, which means by the time we get the kids home, bathed, and in bed, they’ll be way beyond crabby again.
Still, I will go, and I will vote for you. I think Hillary Clinton or maybe even John McCain could be a good president. I think there’s a very real possibility that you are already starting to believe the hype about yourself, which is exceedingly dangerous. But, there is also a possibility that you could be great, and I have never lived during a great presidency. I have seen good (Bill Clinton), and I have seen bad (guess who?), and I would like to see great.
I am taking a chance on you. Please don’t eff it up.
