On First Looking Into Chapman's Voting


When he participtated in Reason's "revealing presidential poll," Chicago Tribune columnist Steve Chapman wrote, "I haven't decided between John Kerry and Michael Badnarik. I have only the dimmest hopes for a Kerry presidency, but I think Bush has to be held accountable for Iraq, the worst foreign policy blunder since Vietnam, and the accelerated growth of the federal government."

Now he's made up his mind: "I'm going to vote for a Democrat for president," he declares in his latest column, adding, "Bad things have been the hallmark of the Bush presidency, from either a conservative or a liberal perspective. On Nov. 2, we can let him expand the grave damage he has done to the national interest--or we can hold him accountable. I'll vote for John Kerry without high hopes or enthusiasm, but vote for him I will."

Whole thing here (reg. required).
