vote-smart-buttonAfter a long last few months, the big day is finally here.  This is going to be a historic election.  For the first time in history, the US will have either a black man or a woman holding office in our executive branch.  We have heard a lot of arguments for and against each candidate so now all I can say is: don’t forget to go out and vote.  It is one of the most important things you can do in a Democratic nation.  I’m on my way right now!

There has been a lot of debate surrounding the experience each candidate has.  I have no opinions today.  Just a recap of each candidate’s resume recounting what they’ve been doing since high school.  You be the judge.  I think Biden might be the winner in national leadership experience (I lied about not having an opinion) but that is just what the numbers appear to say to me.
