Oh, the candidates!

Things are starting to heat up again in politics-land. I listen to NPR every morning while driving my daughter to school, and the talk is hot and heavy on the candidates who are popping up everywhere.

Obama finally threw his hat into the ring, and it looks like it's going to be the Barack-and-Hillary show over the next year. I'm really quite delighted at them both when not thinking political views at all - a woman and an African-American! It would be quite exciting to have either in the white house.

The Republicans also have their hands full picking a new candidate. There's Giuliani who was wildly popular after 9/11 but is also pro-choice and pro-gay rights. There's a Mormon who may or may not be able to find common ground with the religious right. And there's good old John McCain, who I personally would not hate to see in the presidency, but the very things that would make me not hate for him to get elected would make lots of Republicans feel the exact opposite.

2008 is going to be an interesting year!
