Adrenaline Rush

I love elections.  And, I love this photo of the Senator that was taken the day his opponent dropped out of the race.  It speaks volumes to me.

If the Senator were on the ballot, I would be five pounds thinner, losing hair and extraordinarily sleep deprived.  Adrenaline would be my constant companion.  I miss you adrenaline.  Come back and see me sometime!

I have written about some of the crazy things that happen during a campaign.  But, only some of them.  I am saving the good stuff for a book because it is ever so worthy of being published.  Unless you have ever been directly involved in a political campaign…. you have no idea how crazy it gets.  T-R-U-S-T me!  The negative ads you see on television are only the tip of the iceberg.  So much takes place behind the scenes that would make your jaw drop.

I do cherish the fact that we can hire and fire our elected officials at the ballot box, and I think we are going to see a lot of that today.   Peggy Noonan, one of my favorite pundits,  wrote a great article about the mood of the electorate and focused her attention on a particular congressional race in New Jersey.  I’ll be watching that one.  In the meantime, I am going to go vote… and you should too!
