I voted for Obama after reading the two candidates' autobiographies. I know about ghost writers, but much of the tone and content must be genuine. Since Obama was clearly the smarter of the two, I picked him.
I feel differently now, and will vote for the dumber of the two candidates. Here's why: I think the smarter a person is, the more likely he is to cook up some kind of scheme that will backfire; only a really smart person make make a major mistake.
Thinking is overrated
