Ok, ok, don't lose your minds; I can explain. I do not have a great track record on supporting the people or issues that are winning. I voted for John Edwards TWO days ago, and he was out of the race in less than 24 hours. Stupid Amendment 1 passed, but then almost every amendment proposed to the Florida Constitution passes. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that no one is paying attention, but I am and I consistently vote no, and they consistently pass.*
So, I thought if I supported John McCain, it would ENSURE that there was a Democrat in the White House this time next year. Obviously, it won't be John Edwards and I don't know how I feel about Barack and Hillary, but either of them would be better than a republican.
Great, there I've outed myself and I really can't support McCain. I guess I better figure out who I am supporting then. Only 9 months until the general election. Can we last that long?
* In 2006 I did vote yes on the amendment that made it necessary for 60% to vote yes before an amendment passed. I must have not been paying attention too closely, because I thought it was 67% (like a U.S. Constitutional amendment). If it was 67%, amendment 1 would not have made it.
