Momlogic's Jackie: The end of the election is like the premature halting of a red hot relationship. And I just can't let go.
Oh election, I thought we had something. So many months together... so much excitement. Sometimes you just simply took my breath away. The mudslinging... Barack Obama is associated with who? Sarah Palin's wearing what? The rumors... Who's having an affair? Who's going to be on SNL? You were always there for me -- sometimes even all. night. long.
While the kids were in school and the baby was napping, I would sneak away to just get a tiny taste of you. In the car, I couldn't get enough. Sometimes I didn't even hear my husband talking because you had my undivided attention. You were the last thing I heard at night and the first thing I woke up to every morning.
Election, you were my everything -- the wind, beneath my wings.
Blue states, red states -- following them was like watching Ross and Rachel all over again. Would they ever get together and just make the right choice? Was this season going to end in heartbreak?
The economy, healthcare, the war in Iraq... you made me think, you made me feel... you made me vote.
Oh election, I know it has to be this way. And I know it's not me, it's you. But I know we will meet again and it will be hotter than ever. You will return to me ... I'll wait four years if I have to.
