The Great Debators


Ben and I sit here watching the debate, the candidates reading off the laundry list of things they are going to do if elected President of the United States. I was listening intently, with a hope for the future (ahem...for change). Ben turns to me and says, "In fifth grade I ran for class president. I promised my peers air conditioning in the school buses."
My hopes are shattered.

I, too, was disappointed by what I saw and heard(or what I did not hear) in the debate tonight... However a future (of change) still seems to be the most promising option to me at this point.

Alright, Annie, just because Ben is a bastard doesn't mean you should lose hope in all promises of change. I mean, I don't have any examples to buoy you up, but maybe...this time around...

By the way, James also ran for class president in elementary school, and he made some campaign statements he couldn't deliver: chocolate milk in the drinking fountains; a recess extension; and most damning, a twirly slide.

Wait, update:
James informs me he still plans to make good on his campaign promises; negotiations are just taking longer than he expected.

I thought I might write in Sam's name on the ballot. He seems like a solid choice. Can I get a hell ya???
