Tonight at 9PM will be the last of 3 very important presidential debates. I’m kind of excited about it, but at the same time I don’t really care. The first Presidential debate was so boring, and it lost my attention right away. The second one was a bit more interesting, but I did end up falling asleep on them.
What makes this debate a little more interesting is that it is being held at Hofstra University which is where my best friend Johnny goes to school. He tried to get tickets to see it live but apparently didn’t win one–it was a lottery system.
By now, don’t we all kind of understand that Obama is pulling away. I mean all he really has to do is just stay true to his ways and I think it’s pretty much a given that he will be our new President come January. I was just talking to someone about how this summer it kind of scared me how close the polls were, but lately I have had a sense of relief–that all we have to do is sit back and watch the news, and watch history unfold itself. It’s really exciting.
I wish Obama would have made his way through West Virginia a bit more. It would have been interesting to see him here at WVU. When I saw Bill Clinton here, I was a staunch Hillary supporter…maybe I still am. The consensus all over campus when Bill was here was that people were excited that a change was coming. Obama needs to come here and do that. With only 20 some days left before we vote, I don’t see that happening.
Anyway, make sure you watch the debate tonight. I am sure I will end up posting my thoughts about it later tonight or tomorrow. Better yet, maybe I will wait until SNL spoofs it this week so I can get a better understanding of the otherwise boring, mundane bickering.
