Okay, maybe THIS will be my last post before I go on my honeymoon. I watched the debate last night and felt discouraged by how well John McCain did characterizing Barack Obama as "not understanding" anything, how well he did diminishing Obama by not looking at him or once calling him by his first name (Obama said "John" many times) and just generally coming across as a better debater. McCain led the conversation, pushed his issues, made his points and came off as an experienced old guy who's humoring this young upstart who doesn't know what he's talking about.
Now I'm leaving the state for a week. I wish I'd at LEAST planned our honeymoon in a red state, but no - we'll be in Oregon, of all places. I blew it. When I get back, I'll hopelessly begin my political volunteering in earnest.
