in reply to The most important issue for me in elections is:

In concurrence with William Baldwin (author of Bruno the comic strip, shameless plug ;), there is a considerable lack of good voting candidates this election. When did we go wrong so that we no longer vote for the best candidate but the lesser of two evils?

    I expect it was when people got so caught up in listening to prognosticators do what they did. Seriously, if the media didn't say "well, you know it's going to be one of these two guys," it seems to me it wouldn't be such a foregone conclusion. I don't claim that the chicken came first, only that the chicken's presence acts to increase the likelihood of the egg's being created.
