i just made a contribution to the kerry/edwards campaign. not a big one at all, when i read about a friend from high school dropping a million bucks into their coffers. actually, not a big contribution by any measure. here’s my dilemma:
a.) i am sickened by the cash-hungry beast of campaign finance, and believe that a contribution, regardless of size, tends to perpetuate this corrupt system.
b.) i really want bush and his ultrahawks out of power.
basically an ideological/pragmatic disagreement, and, as usual, pragmatism wins out.
