A Song For Election Day

November 4, 2008

I was walking to class this morning — it’s got to be close to 70 outside and absolutely gorgeous — and it really struck me just what a wonderful event today is.  Maybe it’s because half my time is spent reading about Greek/Athenian democracy anymore (I can’t wait for Thanksgiving break).  But let’s think about it: we’re a nation of nearly 300 million, and yet today we’re engaged in a single civic act.  There’s just something about that, and the two guys on the corner of the street who’ve been waving signs for a city commissioner and reminding everyone to vote for the last three hours without a break.  So, without further ado, I present Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler singing, “If A Song Could Be President” — a scheme I could get behind.
