In just a few short days, we'll be able to say that the 2008 election is only a year away. "Only a year away," you say? Indeed. We have twelve more months of debates and primaries and caucuses. Are you thrilled? (Over this transom, I can sense your excitement). Could the campaign be any longer?! Next week, for a few precious minutes at least, voters in some cities, in a handful of states, will get to focus on other elections. They'll go to the polls to vote for governors and congressmen and mayors and council members. At the very least, they'll get to try out new voting machines. Our "Political Junkie," Ken Rudin, will be here to talk about the 2007 elections. Is there an election in your neck of the woods next week? What's at stake? For whom are you planning to vote? And have you even had time to think about these upcoming elections?
