Was it good for you?

I don’t often get political in my blog — it’s not that kind of blog and I’m not all that politically savvy or inclined. I have my beliefs and don’t like to debate them with non-believers or “different-believers.”

But I’m asking, especially those of you who support Hillary or Obama — What did you think of Sarah Palin’s speech last night? Who watched it and wasn’t impressed? Who didn’t admire this woman’s poise, forthrightness, humor, integrity, eloquence, track record, honesty…? Who found her comments inaccurate or mean-spirited or off the mark? Who didn’t love that she’s not the typical Washington insider? Talk about CHANGE!

I actually got choked up — it was a real “you’ve come a long way baby” moment for me. Yes, I know Geraldine Ferraro broke this ground. Yes, I know all about Hillary. They did nothing for me. But this woman. This woman my age. This mom. This soon-to-be grandma. This politician no less, impressed me immensely. Could we actually put someone in Washington that I truly admire? For the first time in my life, I feel compelled to contribute to a political campaign and put up a yard sign. (I haven’t done either yet, but I think I will!)

Funny, I’m not the biggest McCain supporter — it’s been more like a “lesser of two evils” thing, like I know it is for a lot of people. But now, now I’ll feel a lot more comfortable pulling that lever come November.

What about you?
