The Thinker

If you feel stumped about who should get your vote in California’s February 5 Presidential Primary, The Independent is ready to help you out. In our first election endorsement of 2008 (found here), The Indy supports Barack Obama, largely for his experience and charisma, which we think will help get America back on the right track. But what’s more important than agreeing with us is getting to those polls and voting! So remember to register by January 22 and vote on February 5.
