So it's really only 2007? Coulda fooled me.
We've got presidential candidates debating on TV, congressional candidates lining up in the Maine 1st District, and the media frenzy of a major election year. All that's missing is voter (and volunteer) enthusiasm.
Take an informal bumper sticker poll yourself, and you'll see what I mean. Or better yet, ask your friends if they think the absolute, ultimate, greatest presidential candidate has come over their radar yet.
