Initial reactions: Today, I’m optimistic about America. Our local paper reports that about 96% of Michigan residents who could register to vote, have registered to vote. It’s clear that this election has stirred interests in and emotions about the political life of our country in ways that haven’t happened in a long time. The candidates were clearly different (as in the first presidential debate) and each gave a ‘very good and forceful presentation of themselves’ (as I just heard on the radio).
The Bush/Cheney administration has been, if not disastrous, at least destructive for America. Edwards did a good job of presenting this case, and for the Kerry/Edwards plan for repairing the damage.
