Millions of people from all across the nation voted for the candidate that they believed would be the best choice as the next President of the United States earlier this week.

Buried in "How readers scored first presidential debate," today's letters to the editor section of the Denver Post, is one with a slightly different twist. Kelsey Kenfield noted: "What truly frightened me to the core was Mick Romney's unabashed disregard, arrogance and lack of respect shown for the moderator, Jim Lehrer, an equally learned and accomplished person, a man doing nothing to Romney but offering him a forum to express himself. [… His] attitude towards someone he perceived as standing in his way is … more a measure of the man than anything else that happened Wednesday night. This behavior should not be ignored."
Today's an important day for President Barack Obama. Not only is today the kick off of the debates, but it's also his 20th wedding anniversary with his wife, Michelle!
When I got home and looked my blind date's online profile again, one word popped out that I previously overlooked: CONSERVATIVE. It hit me like a bullet: I am a staunch liberal Democrat. I started to panic, fearing he could be Paul Ryan disguised as Ben Affleck. Even if I were even lucky enough for him to be interested in me, the political lines were drawn.

Let's say you're a staunch republican, and you fall madly in love with a hardcore democrat — can you make your relationship work in spite of your wildly different political views?

The recent Susan G. Komen/Planned Parenthood debacle was a high-profile example of how women's health can fall prey to politics. Considering this is an election year, we can expect reproductive rights rhetoric to heat up on both sides.
With the Iowa Caucus behind us, the 2012 Republican primaries are well under way. Treading the waters of an election can be strenuous on a new relationship, especially when political views lay on polar opposite ends of the spectrum. But before you yell, "Can't we all just get along?!" know that there are plenty of political ideals that singles do agree on.
In the wake of the Iowa caucuses, many pundits are scratching their heads. Favorites like Rick Perry and Newt Gingrich lost to the relative unknown, Rick Santorum, who tied with Mitt Romney at 24% of the vote.
