I just got an e-mail this morning from a mother whose daughter is serving in the U.S. Army in Iraq. Her daughter wasn't even afforded the right to vote- even after requesting an absentee ballot. Her superiors just never got back to her, and she never got to vote.
That said- I think this election went off pretty well, and it was good to see the turnout. Very difficult thing to unseat an incumbent during wartime- regardless of the country. The people have spoken, and Bush clearly won this election- much better than the 2000 fiasco, and fair is fair. Do I like it? No. Did I vote for Bush? No. I accept it.
There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.
