A Sensible Platform.

I've started reading the Narnia books to my girls. We just finished The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe and I was struck by this description of the reign of Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy as the kings and queens of Narnia:

And they made good laws and kept the peace and kept good trees from being unnecessarily cut down, and liberated young dwarfs and satyrs from being sent to school, and generally stopped busybodies and interferers and encouraged ordinary people who wanted to live and let live..

You can call it "throwing away a vote" if you want, but I'm going to write in "C. S. Lewis" this November.

A vote for the Pevenesies is really a vote for the Tisroc!

What about the king of Archenland? He's pretty good.

If the Pevensies were the rulers of America, we'd be drilling in ANWR right now!

Personally, I think a Puddleglum/Reepicheep ticket would be very compelling. They'd balance each other out nicely.
