Wesley Clark’s platform, for the most part, appeared to be pretty alligned to my own. I could appreciate the man’s military experience tempered by a sense of realism. There was no way Clark would change the system completely, but he could put a little perspective that would have been appreciated by both sides. Where does this leave me on the ballot? I would never ever vote for John Kerry, because I think he’s way too middle of the road for my liking. Dean scares the crap out of me with his Quayle-like view at the world, and Edwards I don’t know too much about to say either way. In any case, right now, I’d be pissing my vote away on either a third party or a fictional character. After 2000’s dismal election, I’ve lost my taste for the electoral system.
