Always Looking for a Fix

Me on Election Night 2010

When I say junkie, it's no hyperbole.

During election season, I reload polls every five minutes.I religiously read Politico.com and The St. Pete Times' PolitiFact.

Election night is my Christmas.

I stay up all night, glued to the TV, laptop

Hunter Thompson's "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail 1972" only furthers my assurance that this is what I want to do with the rest of my life. Moments like the "hanging-chads" and recount of the 2000 election and Watergate prove that the media needs to let the world know what's going on. Or at least try.

I had my aha moment when walked down the streets of Washington, D.C. It's where I belong.

There's a certain pull to politics I can't explain but need to chase.
