Brian Bailey Preface to the Revised Edition

Election Season

I've written a lot about the presidential race over the past few months. Now, that the Iowa Caucus and New Hampshire Primary are just days away, it's time to take a stand. Over the next couple of days, I'll share a little bit about my political background, my thoughts on the race, choice for president, and predictions. Then, join me on twitter Thursday night to follow the Iowa results live.

I have no illusions of my influence, but I think it's a healthy thing for each of us to take a good look at the candidates and choose sides. And I think a lot about the example I set for my son. It's been wonderful to share the campaign with him, and he may have caught a little of the political bug from me, but I don't want him to see politics as a spectator sport to be enjoyed from the sidelines, perpetually unsatisfied and free of risk or responsibility.

More tomorrow!
