It wasn't an easy decision. I spent a lot of time reading articles, opinions, and looking over both democratic candidates' websites. I watched and re-watched some of the debate footage. I read endorsements from sources I trust. In the end, I asked myself the following questions in order to choose the candidate I want to support.
1. Who do I believe can make the changes we need?
2. Who can work across party lines?
3. Who can effectively cleanup the mess of the last 8 years?
4. Who can inspire the people of this country and mobilize us to start living a more mindful and responsible American life?
I will be caucusing tonight in support of Barack Obama at my local high school.
