But, if I had made time to blog on Wednesday or Thursday, I would have expressed this: I am thankful for people who are willing to run for office. I may not agree with all of their stated positions, but I'm amazed that they are willing to endure a campaign. Even the local candidates have to deal with criticism, long hours, fundraising and rejection. It's something I have zero interest in ever doing.
Thank goodness our house runs a little more like a monarchy than a democracy—I'm pretty sure there are days that the constituents would happily vote me out of office and take over themselves. :)
