    the acquiescence of so many Democrats to the Bush administration after 9/11, and their vote for the Patriot act, and other measures, started to make me more upset with the party than I had been before. This was compounded by Iraq, and the response to these things by Howard Dean and his campaign, renewed my interest in politics and introduced me to political blogs, and Daily Kos.

    Unfortunately, I haven't really gotten that energy back since Kerry lost. I was excited by Barack Obama's senate campaign, but after he became senator, I started to become more skeptical of him, particularly after some of his interactions with this blog. I supported him for president, and still do, but not with the level of enthusiasm that many had.
