    Yes, Ken did show his feelings.

    I believe the decision turns not so much on the capacity to govern, as
    the character of the man seeking that power.  As I understand the US
    election process (I'm from Canada, but I did spend twenty years in the
    US) most people try to choose the lesser of two evils.  A ballot cast
    for any of the fringe party candidates ... Libertarian comes to mind
    ... would be a wasted vote, so their strategy is understandable.  That
    leaves it between a Republican or a Democrat: Bush or Kerry.
    
    Valor, or lack of it, is part of the character traits available to be
    evaluated.  So is personal morality, or lack of that, when it becomes
    public.
