Sometimes it really sucks to be a voter in an early primary state.

Because like it or not, how we vote effects the rest of the country. I would LOVE it if nobody gave a damn who we in NH voted for. And I often find myself wondering why anyone does (care). We take constant criticism for not being representative of the country's demographic. And yet... both voters and candidates use us as an indicator. I remember in '04, when I was a mere lurker on this board, reading posts like "well I would've voted for Dean but I didnt get the chance". It sucked.

And now (as opposed to 2004) I eat, sleep, live and breathe politics. Now I have a firm grasp on my responsibility as a NH voter. I suppose this is why I'm having such a hard time deciding who to vote for. I go back and forth, back and forth, between candidates on a daily basis. I have my own views but at the same time I want everyone to have a say in who is our Democratic nominee. This is the first time Ive felt this way re: a presidential election. The first president I ever voted for was Bill Clinton. From college in NH might I add. ah well.

These days though, I find myself under so much pressure to make the "right" decision that I cant seem to make a decision at all. I know many think New Hampshire people are white bread northern hicks. But some of us DO really struggle with the task of voting early.

Thanks for listening DU. :toast:
