Thought I'd let you know...  
I entered into a scholarship competition in which you provide a picture and description of the ultimate political dream team, then others vote.
WELL, I entered in with Hillary and Amy Poehler (for the Lol effect).
So, support Hillary being part of the ultimate political dream team and vote for my entry!

Darling, I'm only SLIGHTLY pro-choice. I'm with Hillary and Bill, "Safe, legal, and rare." I, like Hillary, don't agree with it morally but don't think it's the government's job to step in and make that decision. Obama is slightly too pro-choice for me. He said he wouldn't want his daughters "stuck (referring to pregnancy)." I'm sorry, but if you play, you pay. I feel that people should be willing to accept those consequences unless they're raped, etc. But Sarah Palin actually hasn't done anything against abortion in her entire career so far. She claims she's so against it yet she hasn't introduced legislation to thwart it. And she's a state's rights person which means she may not even want to discuss that kind of legislation on the national stage.
You also have to remember how much I don't like Obama. I mean, I really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really don't want him as President. In short? Too liberal, too inexperienced, occasionally says things that I don't think any politician should say, makes some bad decisions, only votes about 1/3 of the time he's in the Senate and most of those are "present" as opposed to "yea" or "nay." (I have more, but the last time I listed all the reasons I had to make it several messages on facebook because it wouldn't all fit.)
Palin isn't as bad as people make her out to be. Believe me, I'm one of the 12 people who don't live in Alaska who knew who she was before the election. One of my good friends is Alaskan and his father is in politics up there (Yes, they are Democrats). They have met with her several times. My friend had nothing bad to say about Sarah Palin. He just says he likes Obama more. She really has done a lot for Alaskans. I mean, I can give you a dossier on her.... There are things I don't like about her, but it's about the lesser of two evils and I'm just going to support whoever I think will screw up the country the least. And you have to remember that I probably access more news than you do because you don't get CNN and stuff, do you?
