Well, that was certainly a subjective blurb (and story) on the part of Mr. Greider. Is he saying that a vote for McCain is somehow a manifestation of one's "dark side"?
I voted for Obama. I did it not because he would be the first multiracial president but because I thoroughly believe he stands the best chance of inspiring us right out of our bickering and polarization with charismatic leadership and fresh ideas. Mr. Greider should bear in mind, however, that John McCain is also an honorable man with substantive ideas; a vote for him has nothing to do with one's "nature."
Indeed, that's the kind of divisive "journalism" so prevalent today that pushed me to Obama's camp. It's provincial thinking, and we need to move on.
