What a shame that SB won't be able to vote this year. She can make up for it in the coming years. :-)

My older girl will be 18 for the next presidential election. Her birthday is in late September and part of her celebration plan for that year is to register to vote that day.


Too bad you don't have the fun of living in a swing state!


I didn't think I'd watch it. But...I really wanted to see what Clinton had to say. And it was spectacular!

Bracing myself for the onslaught of political ads in my swing state...
But yes, I was the choir being preached to this past week, too, and I thought Clinton did a swell job.

I honestly wonder how many people watch both conventions -- Republican and Democrat -- with an open mind. I'm not trying to be cynical here, but having friends on both sides of the political spectrum makes me wonder if made-up minds are changed (or even effected) by what they see and hear.

My son turns 18 in January and he is also bummed about missing the chance to vote. I love that he'll discuss politics with us (and that he shares my liberal views so far!). But I agree with Karen - it does seem like analysis of the conventions skews heavily partisan, so I wonder if anyone who has already made up their mind gives any thought to the other guys. It's easy to dismiss the coverage as "FOX conservatives" or "liberal media bias" if it doesn't fit with your preconcieved notions(Limbaugh's analysis of Obama's speech comes to mind).

I am with you!

That is very special that SB wants to vote. She WILL get there!

Music helps us relieve stress and it makes the environment comfortable. When I am in a journey, I always listen to music to overcome the stress of journey.
