Now that the holiday season is finally over, folks are starting to notice that they’ve gone a full two months without our scheduled elections. The media is getting over their holiday fluff pieces and stories bemoaning the poor Christmas sales. Congress is back in session and promises hearings, investigations, and legislation on the Halloween attacks, delayed election, and treatment of the Mall protesters.Read Nothing is Just One Thing, and you'll likely feel as if the future isn't that far away; we're too close for comfort.
Maybe, just maybe, we can get some more movement about all this.
At this point it is too late to hold elections and get a transition team in place before the 20th. It sounds like Bush has succeeded in extending his term by at least a little bit. A lot of Cantabridgians are staring at their Bush countdown calendars and and bumper stickers and key-chains with with increasing shock that Inauguration Day just may not be coming this year.
Let's hope that Mr. McNeil is way, way wrong.
