It has been an interesting election campaign in Taiwan and today Saturday March 22nd is a nice quiet and peaceful day; no noisy trucks in the street; the weather is cloudy up north at least but pleasant. There is no reason why people should not go out and vote.

One thing that stands out in my mind is that how the campaigns of both parties have livened up and use rap and entertainment to appeal to the younger crowd and get them involved. Well in less than twelve hours we will know who the president for the next four years will be. Everyone is playing their cards close to their vest in predictions since it appears to be close; but surprises could come on either end; we will see.
