got irony?

So, um, I've been wanting to tell you guys this for a couple days, but have been too nervous. No, I'm not having another nervous breakdown, it's more serious than that.

I'm 99% certain I'm changing my vote to Hillary Clinton. Whew. I said it. There was no one thing that changed my mind, and I still think Barack Obama will make a supreme president, just maybe next time around. This is a gut-thing.

I've read some things recently, and have really given thought to what Bill Clinton had to say yesterday at Chemeketa, and I kind of got a pang of nostalgia, and yearned for the familiarity of the Clintons. She's already been president, for the most part, and I feel I know what we're getting into with her. She has been much maligned, but there's something greatly satisfying about a woman president.

Please don't hate me. I would have kept it under wraps but even a skilled liar such as myself would be hard pressed to keep this a secret, especially since I've started phone banking for Hillary. Anyway, I hope we can all still be friends. I hope you know will happily vote for Obama if he wins the nomination.

And I hope you know I wish you all...

I knew this was an April Fools long before you admitted it!

I'm a happy Hillary voter - but if Mr Obama happens to become the candidate, I'll vote for him.

Oh, this quote by him was just so good I couldn't pass it up:

Well done! You didn't fool me, of course (I'm far to savvy for such trickery... and B told me: "Go read Chey's April fool's post!!"), but I thought your effort was very well made.

Can you imagine the uproar that would have taken place if you'd waited until tomorrow to reveal the joke? :)

You are a beast!

I love that picture of the "O" man. He looks so cuddly and lovey-dovey.
