So this week the only thing on NPR (my main news source) has been presidential primaries. We here in Portland don't get to vote for a while yet, so we have time to ponder. I am mostly for Obama, I like him, his appeal to younger people, and what he has to say, but I am still a little nervous about his lack of experience. I want to believe in him.
And I do love the Yes We Can
video. Watch it, if you haven't already.
Some people say Obama should wait 4 or 8 years and then run. Some people say that Hillary has too many enemies in Washington. There are all kinds of other things flying around, obviously. I'd love to know the take of my blog readers (if you're out there).
What do you think? Speak up.

On an unrelated note, it seems I am actually for real about to (next week) close on a house that my lovely grandmother, Happie, is helping me buy. Its a beautiful house with a spiffy kitchen, a great backyard, just south of NE Alberta, and I am so excited! Of course now that I should be packing up my current house, I am reading blogs about politics, music, lesbian parenting
and all kinds of fun things (and this post
about something totally lame).
I also have two really great concerts coming up
, Tracy Grammer solo, and Kris Delmhorst with the amazing Winterpills (how much do I love Signature Sounds artists?!). I'll say more about them soon (but I will say now that Tracy's show is fast on it's way to selling out).
