A Desperate Lack of Quality Nominees
The mess we're in, of course, lies in the sad condition of the American public. We are ignorant and apathetic. We're consumed by shallow and self-serving interests. Thus, we're easily led by politicians, professional educators, advertisers, journalists, Hollywood celebrities and other opinion leaders. And, let's face it, they're the ones who pretty much decides which political personages will be in the finals. The ones they are really afraid of are treated with disdain and mockery (or ignored altogether) and the public obediently fall in line.
But we keep praying and we keep lifting up our voice. For we know miracles do happen -- even in modern politics! After all, how else does one explain Ronald Reagan!
