I am comforted that this election has the potential to be great. Great not because my favorite candidate is guaranteed to win, but that we might be able to finally have a substantive discussion about how to solve the big problems. I know many of my colleagues in the progressive blogging community have little nice to say about McCain, but if there's still a little bit of "McCain 2000" in him instead of just "Crazy 2007 Base-Pleasin' McCain" he's about the best Republican candidate the country could get. I look forward to the discussion. So, for chrissakes, could we stop talking about which wealthy U.S. Senator has a Vulcan mind meld with white people who don't have a college degree and start talking about the issues? (Hint: that's what blue collar workers want to hear about, anyway).
