It’s funny how many people I’ve talked to this past weekend who are more than halfway convinced something will go horribly wrong tomorrow and we will find ourselves faced with the prospect of John McCain as president. Actually, it’s not all that funny. We have, after all, seen the last two decisions go to George W. Bush, who was not simply the lesser man in each race, but one grotesquely unqualified to lead a free, democratic society.
There’s no mystery to my choice: I’m voting for Obama because a sane, intelligent and essentially honest man in the White House is the only remedy for the preceding eight years of lies, madness and corruption. If Obama can get even a decent start at repairing the damage done to this country by the Bush-led Republican klavern, then he will have earned this nation’s undying gratitude.
I wish Obama the best of luck tomorrow. Which is another way of saying I wish us all the best of luck tomorrow.
