Today’s reason isn’t very sexy:

Reason #5 why I’m a Democrat: I’ve wanted to be an educator since at least the second grade, and I’m fortunate to have a job where I can do all of the things I love to do: teaching, research, and administration. President Obama wants to help states maintain a strong roster of teachers by providing funds to hire 100,000 new teachers, who are desperately needed since states have balanced their budgets by laying off teachers instead of raising taxes on higher income people (like me!). Romney opposes this plan.

I doubt I’ll get a lot of Facebook responses!
