Well, that's why you have to decide. It's easy to give my opinion, yes, but it's based on my life, not yours, as I hardly know you.


Only you know what's best for you.

Your life just seems like an endless series of encounters with idiots.

That's pretty typical, though usually the purpose for having campaign staff at polling places is a) To be visual so voters can see their candidate's name before going into the voting booth b) To keep an eye on the opposition to make sure there aren't any dirty tricks or discrimination.

It seems a little too late to be handing out materials, though you do occasionally get the undecided voter coming to the polls looking for some last minute persuasion.

Also, people standing out at the polls tend to be volunteers, not staff, so then you're really getting to the bottom of the barrell.

I am assuming these people would be the elderly or people with nothing else better to do?

Generally yes.

Brian Williams is hosting the hour on MSNBC

Then an hour long, limited commercial interruption NBC Nightly News tonight

Then another hour long special with Brian on NBC at 10pm

Hopefully he'll be reporting big gains for Obama

well they need a reprimand, or remedial reading classes. There are signs written in english and everything telling people no campaigning beyond that point.

Other than that, my first vote cast! I got my sticker too

I'd say elections happen every year (or two or four) but studying in Europe might only come up once.

Oooooh woooooooooooow.

Brian Williams just said something very embarrassing. Apparently people here in Virginia think that the primary here is TODAY, it's not, it's next week, so people are showing up to their polling places, finding them closed and are irately calling election officials. Oh, fellow Virginians, I'm so ashamed.

Yes, but having an election with someone like Barack Obama at the top of the ticket is different. Which is why I'm saying if Clinton is the nominee, there's no doubt I would go to Prague.

Could you delay going for another semester?


ETA - I'm sure this is a stupid suggestion that you would have already considered if possible, so nevermind, just ignore it.
