Election Night

So far, it looks as if Bush will get another turn. Is it a real election or is it fixed by fraudulent voting machines. Who knows?
But should I really care?
There is no actual difference between Bush and Kerry, not in the important issues of war or peace, anyway. In Germany, people are speculating that with a Kerry Presidency it would be harder to reject military or financial involvement into the Iraq war. So maybe Bush would be better, so the "Old Europe" will keep on holding its distance.
What angers me a bit, is how all the TV pundits see the appearance of Bush at home with his family before TV-cameras as something important for the rest of the world to watch over and over again. It just goes to show how superficial our media is - in Europe just as in the US.
