To Vote or Not To Vote

Today Virginia holds its open primary. That means that even tried and true, die-hard Republicans like me have the opportunity to voice our opinions as to who the Democrats should choose as their Presidential candidate. I have a great temptation to drive out to the middle school and flip the lever for Al Sharpton -- not because I believe in his positions but because I would love to say that I had once voted for the Reverend. Also, I have a hard time waiting all the way until November for a chance to vote against the increasingly angry Senator Kerry. However, both of these impulses will most likely be overcome by my driving desire to watch late afternoon television. If only Fighting Joe were still in the race .... But, I digress.
