in less than a week, there will be a new president of the united states.

this is not really disturbing, just a little strange. it's been a long 8 years, baby; when someone besides Bill Clinton was in office, I was still in junior high. so, for most of my quote-unquote adult life, it's been the era of bill. it's kind of exciting to think that it will be different soon.

not that the president, or any part of government for that matter, has much influence over the quality of my life, as a healthy, young person. but politics is an interesting game to follow, a bit more exciting than the iron chef and less mind-numbing than jeopardy.
