I was talking to a supporter of one of the two presidential candidates the other day, and I said that I thought I would watch the presidential debate tonight because I don’t really have a rooting interest this time. The point is, when you really care, sometimes it is harder to watch these kinds of things because you are worried about how it may turn out for your candidate or because you may get overly irritated by the other candidate’s answers. But I figured this time I could watch because, as I said, I don’t have much of a rooting interest.
You could tell my answer bothered this person a little. They said that you have to decide who is the better candidate. There are, effectively, only two choices. It’s an important election, and you need to pick.
