Sounds Like A Sale at Macy's

It is Super Tuesday. Well here is CA it is. At first I thought I better get to Macy's before all the good stuff is gone, but then I realized that Super Tuesday meant voting day! I have not been out to vote yet because I am going to take The Phi with me later this afternoon. She likes the stickers and its never too soon to teach her about the voting process. I don't talk much about politics on here but for the last few weeks I have been doing my research and doing a lot of reading trying to decide between Clinton and Obama. As a double minority (a brown woman) I have always been democrat, but the last presidential election something went terribly wrong. I had just found out I was pregnant at the time, and my cousin in the Marines had just been sent overseas. I was hormonal and feeling like a protective mama bear for the first time and I voted for Bush. (:gasp:). This time around I want to be well informed and look at the issues that really are important to me and my family. Like I said I have printed transcripts of debates (Thanks for that link G$) I have read each candidates plans and have read other people opinions and now that Super Tuesday is here I have made my decision. Today The Phi and I will head over to the local polling place and I will show my daughter how I let my voice and opinion be heard by voting for Obama.
