Howard began today saying he once again couldn’t sleep last night, and therefore resorted to playing online chess to pass the time. Howard then noted tomorrow was Election Day, and he knew he was voting for Hilary Clinton for the Senate, adding he’d vote for her for president in 2008 as well, as long as she didn’t run against Rudy Giuliani.

However, Howard went on to say he wasn’t sure who else he was going to vote for tomorrow, although he said he was planning on voting strictly for democrats because of his feelings on the war, despite the fact he admitted that strategy might not be “fair.” After Robin, Fred and Gary convinced Howard to vote for J. Christopher Callaghan for the state’s comptroller position, Howard added he was also supporting Andrew Cuomo for the New York State attorney general spot.

Gary talked about some of the races taking place in his home state of Connecticut before Jon Hein reported he sometimes lets his kids vote in the races where he isn’t familiar with the candidates running. This led to a discussion about the war in Iraq, with Howard pointing out he saw a story about a soldier who had his face blown off in combat, and all he could think about was how the guy should never have to suffer this way because we should never have gone to war in the first place.
