Musing about the Upcoming Election

A major US election is around the corner.  The election was decided already in heaven on Rosh Hashana when decisions were made about all the nations. 

Should I give the election any of my time and thought? I will vote, but other than that, what is there to do? I'm not even sure prayer is appropriate.  Do I really know who is best for the country? As for whoever wins, the verse in Mishlei says, that the hearts of kings and ministers are in Hashem's hands, so Hashem manipulates them as He wishes.

Maybe I'm feeling fatalistic because I don't think "my" candidate will win.  Maybe I should pray more.
