Flashback to 1992...

Rewind 20 years almost to today and you will find me and BFF Denie propped up on a bus heading North to Atlanta.  Proud members of Gators for Bush, we were invited to attend the Vice Presidential debates at Georgia Tech and we couldn't sign up fast enough.  We left in the afternoon and drove straight to the campus, you could not have imagined two more happy girls...



The event was so exciting and I remember having seriously the best time.  Clad in my favorite red Laura Ashley corduroy dress..we were all in red, white or blue-so patriotic.




After it was all over, we climbed back on the bus and endured the long drive home through the night back to Gainesville.  What an amazing experience, to be part of a little bit of history.

Fast forward to 2012 and I can't wait for it all to be over.  Of all the amazing advancements technology has enriched our lives with, the media involvement with a Presidential campaign is my least favorite.  In 1992, you read the paper, listened to the radio, watched the news and talked to friends.  There were no blogs, websites, auto-dial campaign calls and in-your-face media adding their opinion and making you feel stupid for thinking a certain way.  I generally avoid political discussions these days since you are bound to encounter someone who wants to put you on the spot and justify why you believe the way you do.  No thanks.

I am looking forward to November 7th!
