THIS STORY ABOUT HISTORIC VOTER TURN-OUT IN NEW MEXICO is true of most states around the nation, not just the battle-ground states.
I used to work for Jeff Bingaman, Democratic Senator from New Mexico, and while I still believe, and believed then, that Jeff is one of the most intellectually talented members of Congress that we have, I was dismayed by general levels of apathy in New Mexico about politics and policy.
One could probably say the same about much of the country.
But no matter who wins tonight, the nation is taking this choice seriously — and that is terrific news.
