Quote of the Day

"We’ve got two people who want to drive the car, and most people in the car want to drive to Miami... Kerry is an experienced driver, he has a capable team of people with him, but he wants to drive to Boston. George Bush, you ask where he’s going and he says, ‘Miami. Miami or bust. I’m going to Miami.’ But every time he gets behind the wheel, the car goes into the ditch. That’s our choice."
-Walter Russell Mead, articulating why he's a swing voter, in a New York Observer piece on "smart undecideds." I generally agree with its premise that people who haven't decided yet aren't necessarily stupid- some of them can't decide because they know too much.
