I will be the first to admit that I am not the most politically-savvy person in the world
But, I really don't get this endorsement thing! Can someone please explain why it is such a big deal for someone to say 'I am behind so-and-so'? I mean for me, I really don't care who someone else is voting for ... I am going to vote my own conscious and mind. Is it really true that if, say, the leader of a labor union says 'You should vote for this or that person' that he can really be expected to deliver the votes of that union? To me, every person's vote is a matter of that individual person's opinion .... but am I wrong about that?
I mean, when Gore endorsed Dean ... what really did that mean? In terms of the general public? Or whatever or whoever it's supposed to benefit? I mean, who cares? Or maybe my question is, who is supposed to care?
I know I probably haven't phrased this question right, but I'm just really confused and don't understand this whole concept!! Help? BLACK by NATURE, PROUD by CHOICE.
Free your mind, and the rest will follow.
