I don’t really know what all the fuss over the election is all about: George W. Bush has been in office for almost 8 years, and now the US gets a new leader, who will potentially change the history of the world forever. See, no big deal.

You probably didn’t (if you’re not Australian). But that didn’t really change the world.

But still, I suppose history tells us it holds some importance, as seen in the 2000 election. America could be using efficient ‘shrimp power’ if Al Gore won 😮

So yes, the election does mean something. Vote responsibly.
