In 2008, election really had a lot of people's attention. My friends and family, I could even hear conversations regaurding the election at the grocery store as I was passing by. Many people were swayed one way or the other, and being such a young person I swayed into who I would have voted for. As a child from a lower-middle class family, I was desperate for change to help this economy that had me deciding between supper and a chance to hang with my friends in the next town over. So as being that Bush was a Republican, I announced myself a Democrat....Of course I was going to vote for Obama, if I could have anyways. Now I think to myelf, what was I thinking?
