Presidential Nominee

Is so Seventies.


Victoria Woodhull

Hillary Clinton will make history next week in Philadelphia when she formally becomes the first woman to be the presidential nominee of a major party. But she is not the first woman to be nominated as a presidential candidate: that distinction is held by Victoria Claflin Woodhull.

West Virginia primary

I came across this article in my news reading and was pretty flabbergasted. 

–>> Federal inmate makes strong showing against Obama in West Virginia primary | Fox News

A Federal inmate – in Texas no less – is getting 40% of the vote in the WV Democratic primary.  40%!  Holy cow!  When WV Dems say, “Anybody but Obama!” they REALLY mean it! 

That is a serious wow factor, lol.  Smile


Reasons for choosing a candidate

Great article over on The Crux, about voting choices, check it out!

We probably will never have a candidate that reflects all of our personal values and this includes the candidates in this election as well. So, I have a short list of positions I could not accept and would preclude me from voting for a candidate.
