When people ask why I'm leaning toward one particular candidate in the upcoming presidential election, I try to explain.
But leave it to Stephen King to say it more simply and clearly in an interview he conducted with himself on his new website:
Steve: So you do want to talk about politics?
SK: Really, I don’t. I’ve got an Obama sticker on my car, and I guess that says what needs saying. Call me a tiresome liberal if you want, but I just think it would be nice to have a smart guy running things for a change. We tried dumb and it hasn’t worked out too well.
