Re: I was kidding around with ya BUT


I don't know how to explain it, but I just feel I "belong" to the party and that I feel right about voting for the Dems, especially here in California. I feel an affinity or whatever you want to call it, to the Dem candidates.

This time I had to choose between Rep. Loretta Sanchez and CA AG Kamala Harris for Boxer's seat. I went with Harris...I've been impressed with her. Nothing against Sanchez. There were 34 people running for Boxer's seat and I didn't recognize any Repub...probably anyone serious knew they didn't have a chance.

Here we had to vote for our party nominee for President but the rest were open to candidates of any party, etc. Even President had a page two for nominees along with Hillary and Bernie. Never heard of any of them. Most are just fly by nights or whatever...not serious. Like putting Mickey Mouse on the ballot.

This is still a blue state and I've lived here my entire life and probably have been influenced by that fact. And my dad was a democrat and he definitely influenced me. My mom didn't vote but complained a lot because my dad was a union guy and she was against unions so I guess she was more of a republican.

I really can't remember if I voted in the November, 1968 presidential election. Of course I voted for Bobby Kennedy in the primary and we know how that turned out. I wasn't a Humphrey fan and because of all the strife, I probably didn't vote that year. Is that when Nixon was elected? I truly don't remember as Bob and I were married on 10-27-68...other things on my mind.

So, yeah, I vote straight Dem all the time and don't see that changing.
