I voted in my very first primary (early) on Friday.  I must say, it was kind of exciting, except for the part where I suddenly realized that there were other offices on the ballot that I wasn't prepared to vote for.  And, I felt a little bit dirty signing the bit declaring that I'm a Democrat (and therefore won't be voting in any other primaries).  I don't like aligning myself with a political party--but I guess it's not exactly signing my soul away.

The aggressive campaigning has been driving me nuts, though.  Hillary's using scare tactics in her TV ads and is starting to sound desperate.  Bill _and_ Chelsea came to Lubbock, which was surprising.  Obama backed down from an appearance out here because supposedly we're too much of a Clinton stronghold... what?  Last I heard, we were so conservative out here that Bill Clinton spoke at a high school auditorium that they didn't think they could fill. 

...And, Hillary was just on Saturday Night Live.  I'm going to be so happy when this is all over.  :-P
