A Question - Political

Okay. The Republican nomination for President has been figured out, but the Democratic nomination is still up in the air. Does that mean there's still time for me to enter the race? Not that I would win, mind you. But then I really don't think anyone is going to WIN the presidency this time. I think it's pretty much everybody's race to lose. I mean I'm beginning to think that none of the candidates in the running would make a good president. I can't remember. Is this the appropriate feeling for this point in the campaigning? Am I just fatigued from months of people spouting off and trying to say things that will make Americans like them?

Or am I missing something?

I remember, vaguely, that we used to find out the candidate during the convention. It was exciting.

Now I am bored, restless and done with the whole damn thing. My Dad always told me time passed slower when you grow older. I had no idea how right he was.

It went from being exciting and a good forum for talking about race and gender, to being excruciating and a bad forum to talk about race and gender. I hate two of them and am worried about the third.

Of course, Steve Torres, you can do what Mike Gravel and Alan Keyes have done...make a token run as the big party nom, then quit in a huff and announce that you're seeking a small-party nomination (Libertarian and Constitution, in those cases). Or be a Housemember, like Bob Barr or Cynthia McKinney, and quit the big party and seek the Pres nom of a small party (Libertarian and Green, respectively). Or do as Ron Paul did in 1988, and not quit the GOP but still run as the Libertarian candidate...who knows what Paul intends to do now, aside from speak at the convention, and good luck with that.
