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!
