Wild Fact About Me I've got pictures of Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Barack Obama in my bedroom. As well as a much coveted Barack Obama action figure. I also have a big crush on Contessa Brewer of MSNBC
My Philosophy Everyone has a right to their own opinion, but that doesn't mean it's right.
What Gives Me Hope Obama/Biden presidency.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I'd make public schools into the kind of places that parents want to send their kids. To quote Aaron Sorkin's President Bartlett, "Schools should be cathedrals of learning and intellect. We should invest the most money of our budget in educating our youth."
What/who changed my life and why The West Wing and my Mom. Growing up I was always told that politics were important and it was a major part of my home life. But when I saw the West Wing I felt that maybe being a political "nerd" wasn't something to be ashamed about.
The other person who changed my life is Senator Barack Obama, who we've elected President. I met Obama in 2001 when he was still a State Senator from Illinois. He came to Gainesville and spoke. I was enthralled and I felt for the first time a politician was talking to me, not just at me.
What Bugs Me Hate crimes, Ann Coulter, Domestic Violence, Republicans  
Passions Education Reform, Politics  
Inspirations Senator Ted Kennedy, My family  
What Scares Me hate, global warming, George W. Bush  
Role Models Contessa Brewer, Chris Matthews, John Stewart, Barack Obama, Keith Olberman, my friends, my family, John F. Kennedy, Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, Betty Page, Debbie Harry, Tina Fey, Martin Luther King Jr., Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Ted Kennedy, Joe Biden, Barack Obama  
Quotation "President Josiah Bartlet: Good. I like your show. I like how you call homosexuality an abomination.
Dr. Jenna Jacobs: I don't say homosexuality is an abomination, Mr. President. The Bible does.
President Josiah Bartlet: Yes it does. Leviticus.
Dr. Jenna Jacobs: 18:22.
President Josiah Bartlet: Chapter and verse. I wanted to ask you a couple of questions while I have you here. I'm interested in selling my youngest daughter into slavery as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. She's a Georgetown sophomore, speaks fluent Italian, always cleared the table when it was her turn. What would a good price for her be? While thinking about that, can I ask another? My Chief of Staff Leo McGarry insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly says he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself or is it okay to call the police? Here's one that's really important because we've got a lot of sports fans in this town: touching the skin of a dead pig makes one unclean. Leviticus 11:7. If they promise to wear gloves, can the Washington Redskins still play football? Can Notre Dame? Can West Point? Does the whole town really have to be together to stone my brother John for planting different crops side by side? Can I burn my mother in a small family gathering for wearing garments made from two different threads? Think about those questions, would you? One last thing: while you may be mistaking this for your monthly meeting of the Ignorant Tight-Ass Club, in this building, when the President stands, nobody sits."
