As you know, I don’t do a great job of keeping up with the news. Kris often shakes her head and mutters to herself when I reveal my ignorance about current events. This has especially been apparent during the primary election season.
Fortunately, Slate has produced a great nine minute video that summarzies the events of the 2008 Democratic primary:
I was enamored with Obama after his 2004 speech at the Democratic National Convention. I’m still enamored with him. But that’s probably not enough to make me vote for him. (I think McCain’s okay, too, but I like Obama better.)
As usual, I’ll be voting for the strongest third party candidate — a small and feeble expression of my discontent with our current political system.
