Let's party

I re-registered to vote today. For the first time in 13 years, I'm a member of a political party.
I registered Democrat for one reason: to vote for Barack Obama in the upcoming primary. I expect to re-re-register as an independent (or "not a member of a party" as it's called here to avoid confusion with the Independent Party) between the primary and the general election.

I'm not a true Obamamaniac -- I stopped believing in politicians in 1991 (I'll probably write about why some day) -- but I like his message, his expressed desire to fix politics, enough to go out of my way to vote for him. I hope I get to vote for him again in November.
