I, too, am glad that no one got political on this thread. This is the way it should be.

Thanks again for your civility and gracious hospitality to those who might or might not agree with your convictions.

I had contemplated composing a rambling dialog musing on the concept of having all the congressmen take a few trips in their own Airstream. The hypothesis was that they would start behaving more like the members on the Forum, begin to see things eye to eye and try to do more positive things for the people.
Then I remembered the vitriol exchanged between members of the WBCCI this summer over the direction of the club.
Oh, well...
Maybe summerkid, by not voting here in the Land of Lincoln is having the last laugh on us Illinoisans after all. No Illinois seat changed hands and all the incumbents won. No one expects any change in the direction of this State.
On the other hand, the old saw that "all politics is local" may have finally been put to rest. No matter your views we can all agree the Country is definitely heading for a change.
My sincerest thanks to all who voted and for making your voices heard.

Politics and Airstreams...

I doubt they'd ever see "eye to eye", but that's the way it's supposed to be. But maybe they'd argue and then compromise, or win, or lose, and still treat the other party with some respect at the end of the day.

Send 'em to a forums rally!

The tone maintained on this thread is further proof that Airstreamers are a higher life form.

Not even one mention of an AS at a polling place! Not even as a "lounge" for those hard working poll workers. Oh well, there is always 2008!

Nice Kitty Kat HHP!
