Going off on a tangent here but how is the voter ID lawsuit going? I just read on nbcnews.com that student IDs won't count in Texas as proof of identification. That upsets me because my son, who just turned 18, doesn't have a driver's license and would need to use his high school ID card to vote in November. I am taking him to register to vote today and I am going to push him to get his driver's license before November so that he can vote. But the other reason I am peeved about this is how this will disenfranchise the 18-24 vote that helped put Obama into office. There is no evidence of voter fraud on a large scale. This law was written to make it difficult for young adults, the elderly and minorities to vote...many who would have voted Democratic. The voter ID law should be struck down but it is obviously being used by a cowardly GOP that can't put a candidate up for president that can win on his own. How do you fight something like this in a red state like Texas?!! I hope the lawsuit goes against the voter ID law in time for the November elections so that EVERYONE will get a vote if they want it.
