Any Presidential election year is bound to bring about tension and raise political hackles.
This Presidential election however, raises that tension by 100 and threatens to divide this country. I heard the following statement over the weekend and I’m not sure if I agree with it.
In theory, especially given who is currently President, the statement makes sense. We need to get him out of office. However, in practice, the statement is a little too general. The divide between the centrist Democrats and the more left leaning Democrats has the potential to create a rift and re-elect you know who.
At this point, no one knows who the eventual nominee will be. When that time comes, “vote blue, anyone will do” makes sense. But until then, voters will need to vote with their heart, their head and their gut.
