I would consider myself a political junkie. I have been for some time now. I really look forward to political ad campaigns: complaining about the ones with which I disagree, and nodding along with the one in line with my views. In fact I have to race my wife to the phone so she can’t hang up on a pollster!
I actually lament the fact that I live in a deep blue state. Not that I lean so far to the right I walk with a limp, rather swing states get the most attention from voters. My state is a given so I and my vote is put on the back burner. It’s a shame really.
I realize most people don’t share my passion for political discourse. But I often wonder how many do. Are you looking forward to the ads and calls? Do you avoid or engage political discussion? If you’re not one who wants to be inundated by politicians and their politicking, why might make you more interested?
