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!
