An Historic Presidential Campaign

Editor’s Note: This article by Ricardo Montero-Hernandez was undergoing editing as millions of Americans were going to the polls November 8.

This Presidential campaign has been the most brutal in American history. The New York Times online edition headlines a November 5 story by reporters Farah Stockman and Nick Corasaniti as The Campaign That Has Wounded America’s Image.

I just wish he wasn’t such a buffoon.”
