It's Election Day, and the polls are open at Page 2.

Here's the next race on our ballot:

Pro: Good press guaranteed by Washington pundit George Will.
Con: Does the term clubhouse lawyer mean anything to you?


Thorn
Rod Thorn
Age: 59     Day job: President, New Jersey Nets
Pro: Now that he's back in team management, he can display such fine decision-making and foresight as the time he drafted a kid named Michael Jordan.
