The Riddle Of the Missing Bumper Sticker
Riddle me this: The 2008 presidential election is the first time in over two generations that both major political parties have a wide open field, without a sitting incumbent or a current Vice President dominating the process. The opportunities for ordinary Americans to involve themselves in the process of choosing the next President of the United States are unprecedented.
Yet, looking out on the road today, a week before the first vote of the 2008 presidential election season, I have yet to see a single bumper sticker promoting a presidential candidate – Republican or Democrat.
Four years ago, by this point in the presidential election season, cars were thick with bumper stickers promoting different presidential candidates.
Why not now?
