I Just Had an Epiphany

I was talking with my wife, and she asked how many people were running for the Republican Presidential nomination, so we went to the Wiki, and we came up with a count, 16, possibly as many as 19. (List with status key after the break)

She then asked how many Democrats are running, and I said 3, Clinton, Sanders, and O'Malley.

She jokingly suggested that I change parties to Republican, because I had more charges, and I replied, "Nope.  I want to vote against Hillary Clinton. ……… No, that's not actually true. I want to vote for Bernie Sanders."

And then it hit me:  I actually want to vote for Bernie Sanders.

This is the first time that I've actually wanted to vote for a Presidential candidate in at least a dozen years.

It's a strange feeling. ……… It's a good feeling, but it's a strange feeling.
