There really isn't much to gloat about. McCain and Obama are both terrible presidential canidates, we just picked the lesser of two evils so to speak.

Right.

I don't think they're necessarily terrible, though.

And I may have been fine with McCain if he hadn't chosen Palin as VP...

Obama seems like a pretty fine choice in my opinion. He isn't exactly what I'd call amazing but he's far from bad.

Yeah, the "lesser of two evils" bullshit really doesn't work anymore.

People used "lesser of two evils" as an excuse to make an uninformed vote four and eight years ago, and it's starting to get old. It's the voter's responsibility to educate themselves about the candidates and not to relegate their idiocy to an abused cliche.

That's true.

The sad thing is, though, that many voters don't educate themselves.

And then they still vote.

Be the vote based on racism, opinions, boredom...

I don't know anymore.

It seems that America is falling apart.

With all of the information we have, I still cannot meet more than a handful of legitimately(sp?) educated voters.

At least young people actually voted this election.

But do you think they would have voted differently if they had known more about each candidate?

Not what their friends say, not what the media says, but what they themselves found out?
