real tragedy of what the American political process has turned into is that inane, shallow people like Hillar Clinton, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, John Edwards, John McCain, and more others than I care to name will be pimped as serious contenders by their parties and the press, while the really interesting candidates with some measure of principles - like Tom Tancredo and Ron Paul - will never get a fair shake.
Face up to it if you haven't already: our "leaders" are picked for us. We don't pick them. The party bigwigs and their suck-up shills in the media determine who it is that the American people will think about - and how they will think about them - for elected office.
Until we tell "them" to "go to Hell", we'll never be a free country.
Nobody who desperately wants to be President, deserves to be President.
And anyone who would even consider voting for a Clinton or a Bush anymore should be dragged out into the street and shot.
