It's debatable...

Last night we tuned in for the Democratic debate. Interesting format with the youtube questions. In some ways it seemed a little more accessible and the questions were asked in an interesting way. Some questions were rather silly while some were a little more straight forward than your polished journalist question. A good idea to get people more involved in the political process.

There were some good answers, but overall I was not all that impressed. I have been wondering more about Obama (and I will probably still do more homework on the guy) but he seemed inexperienced. In fact, I realize that I am wary of any candidate that has not had executive experience. I find myself very disappointed in the "I am a very moral and religious person, but I won't inflict my personal beliefs on anyone else" kind of response. Truth is not relative. There is right and wrong and people should try to live their best accordingly. I guess that is just one of the reasons I have republican leanings. I feel like most of the GOP candidates try to stand up for what they believe in, even if the stand is not exactly popular.

Mitt Romney in '08!

Well, we discussed this over the phone already -- tells you what a blog dummy I am... forgot to go to your link.... I thot the link would come to ME!! S L O W L Y, w/ the help of my children, I'm pulling into the 21st century!

But Hilary doesn't scare me like she does some people -- we all have our anal side; Obama's inexperience DOES scare me.... how would he do 8 months into his presidency w/ a 9/11 (or worse) on his hands? Hilary's hair, makeup & outfit were perfection. (Should my comments stop there to illustrate just how much depth I DON't have???)

Love you -- hope Montana is as much fun as ever this weekend. Pls send photos.

p.s. I really liked the format of the debate w/ the U-tube questions.
