I've voted all my life in either Washington, D.C., or New York state. Most of that time, my vote didn't matter one bit, and this year is no exception. New York, where I now live, is in the bag for Barack Obama. Even though it is called the Empire State, has 29 electoral votes and is the birth state of four presidents (and the home of others), it might as well be Podunk when it comes to the presidential race. Because of the Electoral College, New York isn't the Big Apple. It's nowhere.
