I am not usually interested in political banter, but I did watch both conventions and saw good things on both sides. Well, at least good promises. We'll see what happens. But I, like Abbey, am amazed at the history that will be made coming in November. A black man or a woman in the White House. It really is a wonderful thing that so many changes have been made for the better in a relatively short period of time. Amazing!
I do support Republicans (only because Ron Paul is not on the ticket:) and was very impressed with Sarah Palin, who I know nothing about. She seems to really have it all together. I think she will make a wonderful role model while she serves our country. Out of curiousity, my question to you is:
Do you think that, as a mother, her most important role should be in her home? Is she "deserting" her family at this point where a couple of her kids are very young and will need very much attention because one is special needs? Is this a smart choice and do you agree with her choice enough to vote for her?
My personal thoughts were that we need women role models everywhere. And having a woman in the White House can only help the cases of women everywhere who need help. I do think that her family is most important and hope that she can balance it all out somehow. But I appreciate the example that she is setting for my daughter, that women can do anything.
If we are going to make history soon, I hope it is with a woman! :)
