36. Here's a thought...
Edited on Mon Feb-11-08 11:13 AM by spooky3
If you view them as essentially evenly qualified, considering everything, then why not use your vote to send a clear message to the corporate media, who clearly has NOT treated them as evenly qualified? One candidate has gotten essentially a free pass, with occasional, inappropriate smear attempts but mostly laudatory admiration, while the other has been rather consistently treated in a condescending, dismissive, and discriminatory manner ( ). Tell those media they will not decide your candidate and you won't put up with that treatment directed at any good Democrat.
