Was this election a battle between our Hearts and our Heads? It seems to me that the main difference between the candidates was heart-related emotional issues vs. head-related logical issues. We "felt safer" with George Bush. We had a good feeling about him. We feared the terrorists. We fear the homosexuals. All of these emotional things are more important to us than those other issues that John Kerry kept beating us over the 'head' with. Ouch.
And now that George Bush won, we can all breathe a sigh of relief. I don't know about you all, but George Bush gives me a "good feeling" and thats all that matters when you really get down to it. Our hearts are warmed, and our heads will cool.

Absolutely right: Logic was overriden by emotion, for anyone voting Bush.
