Workin' for the weekend!Posted Tuesday, May 6, 2008, at 7:11 AM
Yes folks, the time has come.
No, I'm not going to talk about the primary in Indiana. Rather, I'm going to talk about camping!
In a few minutes.
Honestly, I have grown tired -- as I'm sure others are as well -- of campaigns that have gone on and on for more than a year.
Both Sens. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Barack Obama (D-Ill.) have been campaigning for Democratic supremacy for more than a year now.
I'm just plain tired of it.
I certainly don't want to speak for anyone else, but some Brazil Times' online polls, in my opinion, are telling the story.
The Times recently asked online readers if the two candidates should engage in another debate.
Both Clinton and Obama have faced each other in more than 20 debates since the two campaigns began.
Does the public really need to see another debate? I don't think so. If both candidates haven't gotten their points across yet, than neither one is really ready to serve as President of the United States.
Of course, that is only my opinion.
But I can't wait, honestly, for Tuesday evening to be over.
Sure, it's exciting that Indiana's voice finally has a chance to be heard. It's a great thing. It's wonderful that this state will play a huge role in a presidential campaign.
But enough is enough.
Earlier in this blog, I mentioned camping! Not campaigning, but camping!
I'm heading to Monroe County this weekend for a few days away from the grind. Nice indeed. A chance to sit next to a campfire and enjoy time with friends and loved ones.
But after Tuesday, even though Indiana's primary will officially be over, I am completely aware that these two campaigns will continue to battle it out.
On Monday, both Clinton and Obama campaigns said they believed the battle would extend into June.
So, both candidates will continue to flood the evening news, the daily cable news channels, etc.
But at least I'll get away for a couple of days.
Still, I hope everyone does get out and vote. It's important to remember that.
