I’m sure your inbox has been as crowded as mine, over the past six weeks, with emails from senators, the veep, even Barry O. himself, exhorting you to cast your vote this way or that, choose this candidate over that one, save our country from certain destruction at the hands of [insert opposing political party name here].
So I’ll keep this brief: make sure you vote today, and not just for the party you like best but for the candidates who will do the best job. And I don’t need to remind you of the importance of thinking carefully about the recent health-care legislation and its potential benefits for the illin’est of us, in terms of lifetime healthcare limits, pre-existing conditions, and coverage for the young adults under their parents’ policies.
Okay, I’ll get off the soapbox now. The most important point to remember is: if you don’t vote, you can’t bitch about them later.
