BO being elected unfortunately shows the general population is no longer capable of a democratic republic. The Founding Fathers warned of this. We know have an "American Idol" president. Adams in particular wrote of the character qualities of public office. He warned of men like BO. They were afraid this would happen it is why originally Senators were not elected, but chosen by State legislators and why we have electoral college. It is not about ideas, but character and experience. BO has neither, there were far more qualified Democrats. I truly hope for the sake of the country he does well, but have little hope. I fear for my childrens futures. So noone thinks I have any great love for GWB, I take issue with many of the things he's done, but not in the vein of conventional wisdom.
