The end of a two year race comes as a relief to many. For me I certainly won’t miss the non-stop stream of campaign emails and releases touting, rather SHOUTING ABOUT, this or that gaffe or outrage from the other side. I won’t miss the drumbeat of polls and poll gurus. (By the way, the polls were quite accurate in the end.) I won’t miss the infuriating cheerleading that passed for the MSM’s coverage of the Obama campaign. I won’t miss the sometimes cringe-inducing debate performances — by a number of candidates and moderators. ( The worst was that school marm in the Iowa debates. Fred Thompson, in his finest moment refused to raise his hand and answer “yes” or “no” to one of her imperious questions.)
It is time to move on to the purpose of elections rather than the election itself — to the matter of governing.
