(CNN)I love politics. I particularly love campaigns for President -- watching candidates kiss babies and march in parades; poring over end of quarter fundraising totals; analyzing sound bites and political gaffes; watching political ads; and playing the "which candidate would you rather have a beer with" game. I love it ALL.
