25. In 1992
I was only 16, but I was an active follower of politics. At first I liked Tom Harkin, but even then I knew that he was not likely to get elected or even nominated. I started paying more attention to Clinton. I showed up one day at his local campaign office in Walnut Creek, CA, where I grew up, and I decided to get involved in the campaign.

I have not lived in a swing state since 1988. By June of 1992, the real President Bush decided to write off California after a Field Poll showed him losing in the state by 34 points. In 1996, I was in college in Massachusetts: Clinton won 61%-29%. In 2000, I was here in Texas, Bush won 59%-38%. And I will likely be here next year too. I hope someday to live in a swing state.
