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).
