"VOTE EARLY & VOTE OFTEN"

As they say in Chicago "Vote Early, Vote Often". Today is the Michigan Presidential Primary. As many of you may have heard, what a mess. As any party person knows, discussing religion, politics and sex (or is it money) at a party is in poor taste. I plan to leave politics out of my blog (even though it is a large part of my life) because this is blog is suppose to be for fun. After several personal attacks over my party affiliation--even by good friends, I realized, discussing politics is not fun and we never bring it up to anyone outside our family unless we have a written guarantee that they agree with us (just kidding). We love a healthy debate...which so many people are uncapable of having.
On to the lighter side of politics....there are always great parties involved. I even met my husband at an "Election Night Party". I have attended four Inaugural Balls in Washington (for both Democratic and Republican Presidents), and I must say, the Michigan Inaugural Ball is the best --sorry Dallas--the Black Tie and Boots Ball" is not an official ball since it is the night before the Inauguration. The Michigan Ball is at the American History Museum in Washington DC. Most of the other balls are at hotels with 3-4 other states involved and you have to pay to sit down--yes pay. In addition to the Inaugural Balls, I also think there was some type of ceremony--peaceful, changing of power-thing going on in DC at this time too.
It is a long road until Jan. 20th, 2009 (Inauguration) ...Black Tie and Boots is Jan. 19th.....HANG IN THERE EVERYONE!
UPDATE: My husband just read my blog and said the Michigan Ball is not official either. Well then, never mind!

I found your cute blog yesterday, but was unable to post a comment. I also started a blog a week ago. Stop by and visit sometime. Be patient. I'm still getting used to this blogging thing. I, like you, will not post anything political on my blog. So many people get upset when you don't agree with them.

Believe it or not, my neighbor across the street (and 4 houses down) planned both of Bush's inaugurals. I was watching the various balls on TV and looked up and saw Bush kissing my neighbor and thanking her at the microphone. I knew she worked for capacity for Bush, but I had no idea!

I meant to say "I knew she worked for Bush in some capacity...."
