An email from a friend in Washington who's active in Democratic politics:
Honestly, I haven't been paying attention to the Presidential race at all. I'm sick of it and the coverage of it is terrible... Yesterday, MSNBC had a report on what Obama has in his pockets. It's a lucky poker chip, a lucky arrowhead, and a lucky penny if you must know...all given to him by supporters (I assume they aren't lobbyist donations).
I think there must be many people who feel this way. Already. Happily, there are only four more months of campaigning.
