Election day tomorrow. I'm voting for Obama, Kaine (Senate) and Connelly (House). Does it make a difference? From the perspective of 71 years, and probably 64 or so following politics (don't ask why the early interest) I'd say it does and it doesn't. The bottom line is that the country is like a big ocean liner with lots of momentum and we tend to overestimate the influence of our elected officials. It's rather like ASCS/FSA, very hard to make significant changes in the culture and organization.
