Well, it's Super Tuesday. So, for those of you in the 24 states who are running primaries today, GO VOTE if you haven't already. Vote before work, or after work, or at lunch. We're narrowing the fields of contenders today, so this is your chance to see how your party will shape up. I'm not going to stump for any of the candidates, nor am I going to rail against any. I just want you, the reader, to go out and participate in the electoral process. Just remember this: in the United States, you get the government for which you vote and you get the government for which you don't vote. So, here's your opportunity to help make a decision on who's running the place. The general election is nine months away, but your vote in the primaries determines what each party will have to offer in November.

The rest of the country had their big event Sunday, for politics-watchers like me, this is like the playoffs. The first Tuesday in November is my big event.
