Breaking the Silence:
Next week Americans will vote for candidates who have spent much of their campaigns addressing state and local issues. But no future historian will linger over the ideas put forth for improving schools or directing funds to highway projects.
It should surprise few readers that we think a vote that is seen—in America and the world at large—as a decisive “No” vote on the Bush presidency is the best outcome.
It should surprise a few of my readers (as if there are more than two, counting me) that the American Spectator has reached the same conclusion I have. Granted, it took them 6 years longer to reach that conclusion, but better late than never, huh?
[P.S. Vote, dammit. Especially if you are a woman in your 20s. I care who you vote for, but, more important to me is that you vote at all. If you don't let your voice be heard, well, then, nobody will listen to you. Or something. Point is: vote.]
