33. This is the first time I've ever been so interested in politics and
I'm in my sixty's. First time I'm EVER contributed, considered myself a junkie, wrote letters, got signatures, Attended political parties/meetups, chatted on line about politics, spend 24/7 thinking about a political campaign, drove my family nuts with my one track mind and ever loved a candidate. Although I loved Bill Clinton and he woke up my political juices.

I guess it's because I fear for our country for the first time ever and I know Clark is the bright star in our future and the world will be in worse shape without him. He's EVERYTHING I could ever want in a president. He not only has my vote but he has my heart and soul. He's got me! I'm his!
