One thing I could not grasp in the fall of 2000 (and again this election year) is how people can be "undecided" with the election less than two weeks away. The only way you can be "undecided" is if you haven't taken any personal effort to consider what issues are important to you, and how the candidates stand on those issues. In most races, the difference between the candidates is fairly clear... it shouldn't be that hard to determine which one is closer to your stance on the issues. Unless, of course, you don't have a stance on most issues, which is probably all too often the case.
