History has definitely been made this year with the presidential elections. Although Hillary Clinton may not have received the numbers required to make her the democratic candidate, she has forever changed history. For the first time, people actually considered having a "first gentleman" to accompany the president. Very cool.

I think elections are great. Always have. They give people who either lack the desire, knowledge, etc. to run for office an opportunity to have a say in the outcome of something bigger than they are.

I'm not just talking politics, either. Look at the reality shows our country loves. Why? We love to help the worthy(from our perspective) succeed. So, whether the election is for a sixth grade class president, prom queen, dog catcher, American Idol, or President of the United States we get into the groove.

Journal: Write about someone who wants to be elected.
