Who to vote for?

So I have been having this internal debate about who to vote for today. Even as I walked up to the table and handed them my license I said, "do I have to decide right now between Republican and Democrat?" Let me tell you why I am having this struggle...

I have 2 candidates that I truly would be happy with in office Romney and Obama. I agree with several stances on both candidates, though Romney's economical experience gives him an edge with me. I think they both show great character. I've been teaching my girls about voting, and how it is important to know what each of the candidates believe in. I even took the girls with me to vote, but I'll get to that in a minute.

I also took a test which confirmed how I feel about the candidates:

My "heart vote" is definitely with Romney. However, I really believe that we are going to have a Democrat as President. I absolutely can't stand Hillary Clinton(or her husband) and definitely don't want to see her in office. So now I'm torn, do I vote for Obama simply so he can have one more vote against Hillary = "mind vote"? Or do I vote with my heart for Romney? I've been turning this over in my head constantly. Even as I entered the middle school to vote I was still unsure.

So, when the election official said, "yes, you have to choose now," I went with my gut and voted for Romney. I feel good about this decision.

GO VOTE!

So I guess our decision is made now. We are also leaning Obama now. If Clinton wins it we don't even know if we will vote. :(
Hope you are doing well!

Thank goodness I'm not alone. I too would have voted for Romney if he hadn't pulled out. I simply can not support someone who gives good (borrowed) speaches and tells me what I want to hear but with no real examples of accomplishments. Yes, I'm talking about Obama. But one thing is clear, I will not be sending up another Clinton, one was enough. So now I'm left with McCain whom I only agree with on national security. Even with him I am unsure. To better understand my conflict read my blog about the meaning of Thanksgiving.

take care

I will be voting for McCain this fall. My Florida vote was a Romney vote! Still wish he was in it. I will just have to wish for 2012.
