On the issues I care about (and therefore not including the topic addressed from various perspectives so eloquently by my esteemed colleagues), I prefer the positions of the Democratic Party platform and candidate. I directly benefited from Barack Obamaâ€™s work as a state senator while I lived in Illinois, he seems to know what heâ€™s talking about on important issues, and it looks like he ran a pretty competent campaign. For my taste, McCain and Palin didnâ€™t offer much more than the politics of fear and resentment, and they seemed more likely to stay trapped in the conflicts of the twentieth century than their opponents. I know itâ€™s fashionable to affect hand-wringing uncertainty about choosing between two candidates, but I cast my vote for Obama with unmitigated enthusiasm.
Who did you vote for?
