For longtime DUers going through our fourth presidential primary

I voted on Friday with.........

baby blm

Her first vote for a president.

Geez....remember when she would sit on my lap and laugh at Monkey in a Man Suit pictures?

When Kerry announced in SC she was the youngest attendee and afterwards he cupped his giant hands and held her face as she just stared up at him with a huge smile.

Throughout the next year, when she saw him on TV she’d say, That’s John Kerry. He’s my best friend.”

Heh, some toddlers then loved a purple dinosaur named Barney, mine loved Democratic nominee John Kerry.

Time. Flies.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

But after I got to learn about the amazing things he'd done I really came to respect him. Too bad he was the victim of yet another stolen election by the GOP (care of Ken Blackwell and Ohio).
