Election thoughts (non-partisan)

Most people I know seem to have long ago reached the point of exhaustion with the subject of the election, and can hardly wait to put the whole thing behind them. That's understandable. But I do have to say that there's one aspect of our national elections that I've always liked.

Election day is the day power comes home.

Election day is the day we turn the tables and make our voices heard. It's the day when the men who wield power in Brussels and Moscow and Beijing and Tokyo and, yes, in Washington itself, must just sit tight and wait to see which candidate we -- ordinary people in cities and towns all across the United States -- will place in the most powerful office on Earth. They get no say. This decision is purely ours.

And if you think you may not like the outcome on Tuesday, look at it this way: either McCain or Obama will be a huge improvement over the guy we've got in the Presidency right now. In that sense, either way, we win.
