I just simply marvel at the fact that we've established family political dynasties in this nation...something that would be completely abhorrent to our founders and the very principles of our Republic. But, I remember when we used to actually value (even in a legal sense) the Constitution. Ahhh...the good ol' days.

First black, now time for the first woman! Soldiers get your boots ready because you gonna need 'em.....again no matter who wins. Alas, I hope I am wrong.
