Me, I'm cautiously optomistic (talk about a middle of the road stance, huh?) See, for the first time in many elections, I didn't feel like I was voting simply for the lesser of two evils. I think they are both good men. I was undecided up until almost the last minute yesterday when I shut off my mind, got quiet, and listened to my heart. Then I went and voted. For John McCain. And I knew, that whatever the outcome of this election would be, it was going to be okay.
However else you might feel about our new president elect, one thing is clear, Senator Obama says he's going to try to make the environment a priority. And since I am clearly pro-environment, I'm excited about what he might be able to do (see - there's that cautious optimism rearing its ugly head again, I said "might.")
So here is my question to you, readers. What do you think is the most important environmental issue that our new president should tackle? You know what, let me ask a different question. Besides alternative energy, what do you think the most important environmental issue is that our new president should tackle? I think that most people would say alternative energy is paramount. What's next after that? Me, I'd like to see him tackle something having to do with food security or strengthening local, organic farmers and making their jobs easier.
