I don’t think I’m ready for Hillary.
I’ll be honest, I’m very torn. With Barack Obama v. John McCain, it was easy. Did I want a young, fresh faced senator who had had a career before politics, who connected with the people and knew what it was like to go to work, come home, go grocery shopping, go to the water park on the weekends, etc. or did I want a career politician who had a military career, then went in to politics for 40 years and had stayed there ever since? The choice was easy.
But now, it’s like do I want somebody who is a career politician whose husband was in the white house, who then went in to politics and has stayed there ever since? But if I choose not to vote, I deny her a vote that could let her win against somebody who will undoubtedly believe that all people of color are either gangers thugs who have been in prison or are illegal and hold no benefit to this country and who thinks that birth control is the work of the devil and that going to war without pondering the repercussions is the only line of action.
Ugh. Like I’m ready for a female president whose intelligent and knows what the fuck she’s doing, but I really don’t want to vote for a career politician. And that’s what Hillary is.
That is not a typo.
