Kerry's running mate is lookin' good?

Abstract: Sure, I voted in 2004. But to be honest, I really had no idea what I was doing. I was so excited to be turning 18 in time for the election, my fingers just flew over the electronic screen as I took in the experience of my first rite of passage into adulthood....

There really is just one political party in the U.S. It simply has two separate branches and slightly different policies at times, but it's run by the same people behind the scenes. And the media basically all say the same thing.

Oh, there's a little window dressing of dissent allowed, a little disagreement that's tolerated, unless it goes too far. But with the media shaping people's opinions with such uniformity, there's not a lot of trouble with differing viewpoints.

If you do happen to differ from the vast robotic crowd, well, they just trust in peer pressure or economic pressure to bring you back.
