I’ve always been politically engaged (although this is the first time I’ve ever volunteered/organized/donated significantly to a presidential candidate), but I swear to Zeus, I can’t handle the thought of another 4 or 8 years of dynastic, cynical, politics-as-usual BS. Bush’s 2004 re-election already threw me for a major loop, and I think I will have to disengage from the process altogether if Hillary somehow wrests the nomination out of Barack’s hands. Mentally and emotionally, it’s like I can’t afford to care anymore. Even the thought of it is gut-punchingly devastating.
