Vanessa’s Variety for the Week of September 5th, 2008

Posted on September 5, 2008 by Vanessa

Now that the Democratic and Republican National Conventions are over I find myself more excited about this election then I have been in at least six years.  Some of the speeches and pandering to party ideals actually sparked my interest whereas I thought there was no hope a year ago.  Needless to say I think it is exciting especially when close friends and family disagree.  I know, I know, we are supposed to steer clear of religion and politics when in social gatherings, but I think I like to bring it up just to see how people respond.
