This election, we had two main candidates running for Governor - Democrat Rendell, former PHL-Mayor; Republican Fischer, Attorney General. The candidates have been completely ridiculous -- over $70M has been spent. They've spent $70M to basically demonstrate that neither of them is a good person or politician. At the same time, they've done all they can to slight the other two candidates -- Libertarian Krawchak; Green Morrill -- including suggesting that they should only take part in the Lt. Govenor debates, if they really want to debate at all.
So, I sat in the booth (unfortunately, I was unable to let Corvis flip the switches, like I used to do as a small child) to vote, with this: two big names I had reason to dislike (Rendell's campaign hit my house this morning with yet more doorjunk!) and a spending history I had little desire to encourage; a Libertarian -- pretty far from my political leanings; a Green candidate, a party I'm not particularly hot on. Rendell will almost certainly win, he's had a lead for a while. Do I vote Democrat, despite my dislike of the candidate? Do I vote Third Party, despite not believing in either candidate nor the standard three-party arguments? I leave my vote as an exercise for the Reader, I've given sufficient hints. :)
