I woke up at 5am to the call of nature, and wandered out to check the news before going back to bed.
Erg. This is precisely what I didn’t want this year.
Don’t get me wrong. I wanted Kerry to win, and there’s still that chance. But most of all, I wanted it to be decided, and decidedd decisively, so that we didn’t have the protracted bitter infighting of four years ago. And that’s precisely what we didn’t get.
So now, we wait, and watch, and hope.
