I ought to be able to vote. (Actually I’ll be home Sept.4.) According to Asahi Shimbun, it figures to be a close vote between PM Junichiro Koizumi and opposition leader Katsuya Okada. The big issue appears to be possible privitization of the postal system (which includes many things here). If I could vote, I imagine I’d go with Koizumi, but I’m not sure that’s not because of his cool hair.
