Yes, it is true, I am still undecided about who I am going to vote for. I have been busy running through platforms and positions and trying to decide what I think is most critical. I am not comfortable with many of Bush’s social policies and I am not real comfortable with all of Kerry’s either.
I am not convinced that either has a solid understanding of the security issues. I believe that we need a more aggressive stance and a president who will take action, so in that respect I am confident that Bush will do so. But I am not sold on his ability to make use of Allies either and still feel like I haven’t heard enough about the plan for Iraq.
On the other side I am not convinced that Kerry is going to take action when necessary and will not allowed us to be handcuffed by morally bankrupt groups like the UN.
In short I am still going to vote for the lesser of two evils and I am irritated by that, immensely. I’ll make a decision on this very soon. But it is likely that I will not announce it here because I am not interested in being “talked” to by Bush or Kerry groupies.
This election has been a sad exhibition of bad manners and poor judgement.

I recieved my absentee ballot a couple of weeks ago and have already voted. I’m a veteran and have served during a war and have metals for it. I strongly belive in my own core values and those of the military and country I served. I can feel proud and secure in the fact that I voted for Kerry/Edwards because I really truly feel that he really knows what being at war means. I’m sure this is not a popular belief, but I just have a strong feeling and since I have expierenced war myself I voted for who I felt right in my heart. I would be lying if I said I did not post this to convince you to vote for Kerry but it does not hurt to try;). VETERANS FOR KERRY.

You know, the mainstream, very partisan, pundits say that there is absolutely no way that a person could be undecided at this point in the game, and have paid any attention to the race—know the issues, etc.
I firmly disagree with that assertion.
Flip-floppiung back and forth on this end. Trying to weigh out which candidate’s liabilities will hurt us the most… Like you said, it is sad that we have to do that.
On WMAT, I have been extremely innocuous… Kerry supporters can find bits and pieces where I have supported him and so can the Bush supporters.
Truly though, at this late in the game, it is pretty irrevelant to me, I really just want there to be a decisive winner come Wednesday morning.

I too am undecided at this late hour. I am contemplating writing in my son’s name. He is a baby – I think he can handle the job 😉
