    I voted this AM and until I walked in the booth,I didn’t know if it would be for Hillary or Barack. I voted for Barack. I am 58 and I am a registerd Democrat. No way could I vote for another white, middle aged male. I like Hillary but I am sick of politics as usual and have not been happy with Bill’s involvement. I feel excited about Barack and I usuually feel like I have choices among ho hum candidates.

    I am constantly amazed by people who say that they have voted/will vote for Obama for vague reasons like “they want change” or “they’re excited about him”. I’d rather people not vote at all, if they’re not going to look at the issues. Take some time to look at the issues, people!

    I can’t even vote in the primary in my state, as I’m not registered under any party. Now, changing that so independents can vote – there is one change I would love to see!

    If anyone would like to really get involved, volunteer and organize for the Hillary Clinton campaign in the Philadelphia area. Please contact me at maimuna.syed@temple.edu. Get involved and make you opinion count.
    I am voting for Hillary because her policies make sense. She tackles a problem and finds honest solutions that make our lives easier.
    Her healthcare plan is funded by making medical records electronic which will make our lives easier altogether.
    Get involved get organized!
