Zimbabwe Election Goes Forward

After months of strife and bloodshed, the presidential runoff in Zimbabwe finally became a reality Friday; however, it hardly seems like an election, considering there’s only one candidate: long-time President Robert Mugabe.

Sounds a lot like the days of Marshall Tito in Yugoslavia. The problem there was if you didn't vote for him by leaving that part of the ballot blank, their Secret Police would pay you late night visit. This guy's opponent withdrew saying too many of his followers had been killed already and he could not in good conscience let that happen to the masses more if he had continued the fight. It is a safe bet that his continued candidacy would amount to suicide.
