This diary is just my journey, my personal feelings.  This was written in the heat of the moment, and just represents a flood of emotions.

I once was the girl...

who soooo wanted to work for the HRC campaign.  (Remember we knew she was going to run for a long time).  That is even why I took 2 years off of school.  My husband (a republican) hated it.  His obstinence, made me want to work for HRC even more!  Even after I got wind of Obama I was still extremly into HRC (I didn't even know her positions on anything or her affiliations  or that much).  I mean I am highly educated I research everything, looking back on it I do not know why I didn't research more at first.  

I guess bc it was just something I always thought was okay (when you grow up Bush Clinton that's all you know).  In 2004 my husband told me Obama would be the next president (he said this after watching his speech to this day I do not know why he was even watching).  HIs parents (also repubs) said the same thing.  I said sure, he might be HRC's vp.    I've even met HRC (while I was canvassing for another Dem).  However, by that time I had grwon upset w/the Dems in general. I didn't like how they did not fund progressives (who had a real shot like Paul Hacket).  I did not like some things the Dems were doing in my state.  

I began to do research.  2006 came around and I began to become angry as hell! I re-registered as a independent. I started this year off w/out a cannidate.  Living in Iowa (and OH) now, I've seen so much dirt, that I am ashamed that I was once so blind to it.  However, I know how far I've come and how far my husband has come (he once voted for Bush).  I have hope that others can change as well.  For Edwards supporters take heart by the fact that my mother and father thought Edwards absolutely killed in the last debate, it made them see him totatlly different.  He is tired w/Obama for their support

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
