grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

the DNC

50: the number of minutes into the beginning of the DNC last night when I finally stopped crying. 40: the approximate number of times I cried when I saw someone in the audience crying. 4: the number of hours of the convention I watched (so far) today. 3: the number of times Ted Kennedy made me tear up tonight. Jeez. What the hell is wrong with me? I fear I've turned into a democrat (which I have never been registered as). But fear not- I would rather label myself as a "progressive". A progressive who believes (in Huffington's words): when the house is on fire it is not time to remodel. It is time to put out the fire. And I read a lot about Paul Wellstone last night online. I like the fact that he believed in the importance of working within the "system" to change things from the inside. So, that is where I am at right now. I believe this is a very important election and I am disgusted at the co-optation of the meanings of words by republicans ("liberal", "morals", family") and the democrats are rising to this occasion and echoing all these sentiments during the DNC. And I am so happy (to the point of tears) that other people see how important it is to get bush out- that people see the total damage he is doing to other countries, to our rights, to women's rights, to education etc... So, call me a sell out. Whatever. I'm going to wait for Dean to speak.
