Does anyone else think that this election might turn on the influenza vaccine fiasco? I've had cable news running in the background this afternoon and it's a huge story and seems to be a regular item on the front page of the local papers. Old people lining up to be denied vaccination can't look good for the administration in the final days leading up to November 2.
I was thinking that it would be a fun excuse to go to Vancouver, but it turns out that it's kind of pricey to hop on an Amtrack just to get immunized.
( I also think that our vaccination strategy is a politicized mess, but that's another story)
