Voting in Philly

Ms. Clinton, who has cast herself as the stronger candidate on national security, raised eyebrows earlier Tuesday by warning in a television interview she would not hesitate to “totally obliterate” Iran if it launched an attack against Israel. – The Daily Post

More of the same, more of the same. Pennsylvania swings towards Clinton, as expected.

One thing that always amazes me in the amount of political cheer leading permitted at our polling stations. I remember in New York, polling stations were fiercely regulated. Police were called when political advocates came too close to a polling station.

In Philadelphia, my voting experiences have been different. I’ve not only been sold a candidate at the door of my polling station, but even the poll workers seemed to be wearing pins, handing out flyers and talking up their candidates. Tonight, there was a woman stopping everyone at the door to help voters with the process, by pointing out which delegates to vote for. She was wearing a campaign shirt, but she certainly seemed like she was the gatekeeper for the polling place.

Philly, I love you, but we’ve got to get our act together!
