This is a question for the other, err, more seasoned, US dopers like myself who've seen a few elections. Can anybody remember less attention being paid to a presidential election? Usually, by this time, there are people displaying campaign stuff, and the upcoming election is getting discussed. Bumper stickers seem to be going out of style in general, but there seems to be a lack of other expression about the election as well.
What's curious is that it's still too close to call, and there does seem to be a fair degree of differentiation in the major candidates positions. As opposed to some previous contests where it was obvious who was going to win 2 months ahead of time.
No major crises, so people are simply preoccupied with their own affairs?
Speaking of affairs, no salacious info about either Bush or Gore?
Who are, of course, both about as compelling as a dead flounder?
