A Debate Wish List for President Obama

I live in Ohio. That alone should induce pity, given that we're exactly 36 days from the November 6 general election (early voting started today as well).  You may think you know what it's like to be subjected to literally tens of thousands of political ads a week but, I'm just saying? I highly doubt it. I don't even watch broadcast television, but they get me when I turn on cable. And when I am avoiding cable, they get me in the banner ads - on every kind of website you can imagine, there they are. Then, there's the mailbox, and my email inbox, and the yard signs.My ace in the hole for putting up with this stuff is the fact that I've run for office before and was very well-prepared.

Enabling the Babysitter Addiction

I was reading Salon and found an article called My Babysitter Addiction. Interested, I clicked on it – and read a really honest and inspiring story from a woman who uses babysitters as part of her “global village” – you know, the one that’s supposed to help raise your child. She’s a single mother with a passel of kids, and she went from micro-managing her babysitters to allowing them to help her. In turn, she relaxed and was able to get more of her own identity back, and not just be “Mom” all the time....more

Why I Vote Even When It Feels Pointless

Presidential debates and local elections are knocking on our door and things around here are going to get opinionated (more opinionated?). I’m just giving fair warning. As a citizen, a woman, a parent, and a spouse I, like you, have a stake in who will represent my needs in my local, state, and national governments. I take my privilege to vote quite seriously.I vote like it matters, because it does....more
