’08 ELECTION RESULT California, Los Angeles

November 5, 2008  Outside my polling place:  I talked to a woman who was there to vote –but undecided about presidential candidate choice….  I was stunned.  Made me nervous. 

If non-stop news coverage –three debates –discussion 24/7, nearly one billion bucks of donations, websites and newspapers:  hadn’t given her a Clue, I wondered how intelligent the ballot Proposition choices –hers, LA, Californians’ would be.

Whew!  Either the Dumb stayed home –or everybody did their homework/read the Propositions BEFORE voting.  Mostly:  voters did very well!
