    But your point also seems to be that voting nationally doesn't matter.  In my state at least, it certainly can make a big difference to vote in national elections.  Sherrod Brown is one of my senators because I helped vote him in.  I can't say that I find him boring, nor that I think irrelevant whatever work he might manage to do to represent me.

    That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10

      I don't have a satisfactory response for anyone that feels that way. But as we approach the Spring of 2012, I have the sneaking suspicion that Arne Duncan will have parachuted out of the Cabinet, and be replaced by someone who would actually attempt to partner with front line educators.
