and what ´bout u?? who are u supporting? I strongly believe that first of all the important fact is to get the change... but the´re so many ways of doing it! sadly i´m not so sure (even being realist, and knowing the conditions) if i like any democrat. if i would have to choose, i would say Obama or Edwards, but what was ´bout Dean? i miss him! anyway, why i´m not so surprised of having the same feeling i had with french primaries... hillary will be named candidate, and her program and ideas are so far of what i consider a change!
anyway! some hugs! take care, and hope (for sure) talk to u soon!
