First, my endorsements don't matter. I am not the Des Moines Register, the New York Times, or a consistently political blogger with any influence. However, I do have a place to endorse, even if only a few people are reading.
Second, can I just say that I think people in general don't talk about who they are going to vote for enough? Yes? Okay. People need to talk about the candidate they are going to vote for more. I don't know why so many people treat their choice for a future leader of this country as classified information. I want to be proud about my selection. I want to feel like I am informed about my candidate's platform. And, I don't want to make my choice and then file it away in some closet only to break it out on November 4 to find out my choice isn't on the ballot. So, share a name. Have a discussion. Debate. Don't lose your temper. Change your mind. Agree to disagree, but please, please don't hide your choice for the next President of the United States of America.
At this point, since it is still so early, I am endorsing one candidate from each major party.
That's right. I'm not going to explain in detail at this point why I like those two. I have my reasons. Those are big posts though. Today is not a big posting day. I just wanted to get my selections out there before tonight. Explanations will follow.
