What if they held an election and nobody came?

Voter turnout in Republican primaries has been extremely low all year, at least compared to Democratic turnout. And now, with three of the five serious Republican contenders out of the race and John McCain the all-but-certain nominee, many Republicans I know see little reason to vote this winter.
But today’s Maryland primary is being held anyway, and McCain still faces two challengers, one of whom has been winning lots of states lately. Since I consider McCain clearly preferable to Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul, especially on vital issues of national security, I’ll be voting for McCain. If nothing else, it will make doing so this fall feel less strange.
