Did you vote??
You know when you chase a link from someone's website and then click a few more--suddenly you're someplace else and 15 minutes have slipped away! This is what just happened to me.
I'm in TX and I did go vote this past Tuesday. For the first time I can remember, I went to the polls for a primary, and the outcome wasn't already decided for me and everyone else in the state. (It was almost decided for me on the Republican side, though.) I really don't like the way the primaries are set up----All the early states get to decide who's going to be our candidates. Both Larry and I had other candidates we would have rather have voted for, but they bowed out before we even got a chance to support them!
I just wonder if we'd had the chance to vote earlier, if different people would have been the final frontrunners. Texas is a big state, and if we all leaned one way, it would make a big difference. I think we're the third most populous state!
We (the whole family, J included) took a survey on ABC.com earlier in the race and got our top three picks. We had some similar candidates, but we are not completely alike.
Here's a short survey. If you do it, I'd love to know who comes out on top for you. :-)
