I have always loved the Winter Olympics. The Summer Games are fine – and I had a grand time attending them in 1996 – but for me, it’s the Winter Games that captivate and enthrall me.

It *may* open up a few eyes of people who were on the fence politically and swing a few votes to the right – for the time being. Until the Republicans go and do something equally as stupid or nefarious. Then they will go right back.
Because the only thing that could change it, won’t.
