Thomas Friedman on the 2004 election

Thomas L. Friedman, writing in the NY Times, perfectly expresses what bothers me about the election (and our country in general):

“…this election was tipped because of an outpouring of support for George Bush by people who don’t just favor different policies than I do – they favor a whole different kind of America. We don’t just disagree on what America should be doing; we disagree on what America is. It seemed as if they were voting for what team they were on. This was not an election. This was station identification.”
