An interesting essay has been posted online entitled:
Criteria for Presidential Candidate Evaluation – 2008
Citizen Moral Obligations
Potential Errors, Dancing Squirrels, and Whale Bones
The author provides some criteria that can be used to help make a decision among candidates in the upcoming Presidential election. Although I tend to wonder along with Jon Stewart how there can be anyone left who has not made up their mind, I realize that many people have not yet done so, as is evidenced by the polls. So if you are one of the people who has not yet made up your mind, I urge you to read this essay.
Of course, it's unlikely that you would be reading this if you haven't made up your mind--this blog is not well read and updated only sporadically. I myself, for example, have been obsessing about the election for almost two years, long ago made up my mind what candidate to support, was elected a delegate for that candidate in the local Democratic caucus, and attended the district and county convention. I didn't get elected as a delegate to the State or National conventions because I didn't run.
But if you are reading this, please read the linked article above, think about the issues, make up your mind, and VOTE!
