Vance: Why would any body in their right mind have a desire to run for political office day? We probably have many qualified brilliant people in both political parties that would make great leaders, but with all the mud slinging encouraged by the Wall Street Corporate controlled Right Wing media and talking heads, they would never think about running for office. This is why we are left with the bunch of people that were/are running for office in the past year and today. If your old enough, think back when we had great journalist and news people that gave you only the news, instead of a steady diet of propaganda which is forced on us today. Back then, people were able to think for themselves, not like today were you are spoon feed what to think. Today's news is mainly sound bites, manipulated by slick Corporate media, to push a point of view, where Lies become Truths and Truths become lies, depending which media/news organization is telling the fair tail. Today, we get more honest political news from comedians then we do from the main stream media.
