I know yesterday I said I needed a decision free week. It hasn't happened yet.
After all, today is Super Tuesday, and California is one of the 24 states holding primaries today.
In years past, it hasn't mattered how I voted. By the time CA gets to hold a primary, everyone knows who both nominees will be. But year it is different. While people are saying it will be McCain for the Republicans, it isn't a done deal yet by any stretch of the imagination.
(And yes, things are still up in the air on the Dem side, but since I'm a Republican, I will be talking about them.)
So here was my delima. I am most closely aligned with Huckabee. Yet I think Romney has the best chance of beating McCain in the primaries. Frankly, I'm not excited about any of these three (or anyone else who was running), but that's basically who we are left with by this point.
I have spent all week vascilating over who to vote for. Part of me said Romney because he is our only hope of beating McCain. Part of me said, vote how you really feel, which would be Huckabee.
Heck, I was still trying to decide as I walked to the polling place today.
Ultimately, I pulled the lever for Huckabee. I still don't know if it was the best option. Only time will tell, I guess.
I really do hope it isn't McCain. He's talking a great story now. However, we've got this track record to examine, and guess what. He's about as far from what he claims to be as you can get. I love the fact that he is calling Romney a flip flopper since he is more of the same. If McCain is the nominee, there will really be no difference between him and whoever the Dems choose. And I don't know what I will do at that point.
