Deep Breath Time?

David Harsanyi, writing at The Federalist, suggests that, despite what at least one candidate claims, Tuesday's presidential vote will not be the "the most important election in our lifetime."

Harsanyi suggests that since the candidates are not vastly different except in a couple of areas, since neither of them is likely to do too much to "fix things" and since neither of them is likely to be very effective at whatever their agendas may be, there are important ways in which it doesn't matter at all which candidate we elect.

I certainly think he's onto something if he sees both candidates as equally ineffective. So it would make sense to not lay too much weight on what one or the other of them says about what they want to do.
