64. Sorry, older broad here... 61
and I am old.

I can't vote for Obama either. I got ripped a new one for saying that a lot of his supporters are more like fans of celebrities than supporters of a political candidate, but I believe that. I see the correlation between Obama's fans and the kid who put the video on You-tube crying "leave Britney alone!" It's the same kind of thing, IMO. I cannot support a candidacy that embraces and encourages that kind of blind adoration.

This morning, I saw a small article and shared it in this thread:

And, I think I have found a new word to describe this phenomenon: Obamincindent ~ The act or occurrence of excessive Obama reverence or adoration.

Anyway, I have a very hard time taking him seriously and I will write in Hillary's name if she not the nominee. That will be a first for me in all the years I have been voting and it's very depressing.
