As it turns out

A few weeks ago I expressed my ambivalence about casting a vote for Barack Obama. I thought I’d prefer to vote for Green Party candidate Jill Stein. As it turns out, Stein wasn’t even on the ballot in Vermont (how can the Green Party not make the ballot in the Green Mountain State?). Regardless, I had already decided I would add my support to the President, because the election was more about repudiating the far right, which has taken control of the Republican Party, than it was about endorsing the centrism of Obama. So I held my nose and filled in the circle beside the incumbent’s name.
