Women Rock Speeches and It's Official!!  
Finally home, with my car settled and all of that, and I was able to sit back and watch Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton's speeches at the DNC. Both brought tears to my eyes and filled me with renewed hope that we can have a future closer to what it should be, rather than the reality that we have now.

Hillary did fabulous, and actually, my favorite part of both speeches was her dig: It's no surprise that George Bush will be with John McCain next week in the twin cities ... you can't tell them apart anymore. (Cue the gong! Loved it!) And Michelle was just lovely; I just flat-out like her. I admire her and believe her and in her ... like her husband. Speaking of ...

Yay for Democracy!!! Barack Obama is the official Democratic Nominee!!!

Their speeches were great! I particularly liked when Hillary through it out to her voters why it was that they voted for her. She pretty much told them to get their heads out of their asses, and I LOVED her for it. I think that whether she stays in the Senate or becomes part of Obama's cabinet she will make a strong name for herself in his administration.

I'm still nervous as all hell though about this election.

I am even more nervous now because of the pro-Palin sentiment. God, this is nerve-wracking!!! I was on the phone for about 20 minutes driving my BFF insane -- she doesn't give two fig newtons about politics) -- about it all. GAHH!!!
