Here’s a special edition of links of the day to follow-up on Sooper Dooper Tuesday. I was kind of bummed that a) candidates I liked policy-wise (Kucinich then Edwards) dropped out before I could voted and b) that voters of my state went for a right-wing corporatist and Mitt Romney. One thing I miss about living in Virginia is that I was able to vote for candidates in all the parties. In Massachusetts, I temporarily became a Democrat and voted for Obama as he’s seems the best of the who’s left although I’m not really enthused by any of the candidates.
