I am 15 years old, and I don't understand much yet about the political process. My parents aren't affiliated with any specific party, so I don't know whether I am a Republican or a Democrat. I would just like to make a comment on recent political happenings.

I think it is cool that this year political history will be made. We will either have the first black president or the first female vice president. This would be a good year for me to begin getting involved in politics. I can do this by reading newspaper articles, reading stories on the Internet or by watching televised debates. I need to process all of the information I gather and determine who my choice for office would be and why.

I hope that other teens like me will look at this campaign season and get as excited as I have become and hopefully start down the path of their political future as I have done.
