Max Cleeland, former senator from Georgia, came to the Eric Massa campaign center in Henrietta. He gave a great speech. His catch phrase for campaigning is that Today is “We the People Day” Instead of condescending and posturing, he spoke of progressive ideals and how they can affect national politics.
Midterm elections don’t usually generate much excitement. Without a national election to draw voters, turnout is pretty pathetic. Forecasts say that this year will be different, with an estimated 62% of the electorate expected to cast ballots. US turnout is still very low compared to most of the world. Even Iranians turn out in greater numbers than Americans.
