Let's Take a Look at the Big Board
The big day is about 6 weeks away. (ZOMFG!) And even though it's going to change the lives of every American, it will probably be decided by a few million people, in a couple dozen neighborhoods and districts in 7 or 8 states. If you are lucky enough to live in Nevada, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, Florida, New Mexico or Minnesota, then congratulations! Your vote will probably make a difference this year. These people in these neighborhoods in these states will be the kingmakers. As for the liberals in Biloxi, and the conservatives in Nantucket, better luck next time.
But hey, just remember, the new season of American Idol is only a few months away. And we can all get our vote on then.
