It’s that time of year again when we’re starting to get bombarded with those don’t-vote-for-this-person ads. This negative campaigning has become the norm thanks to mudslingers like Rove. Shouldn’t a person’s own record stand for itself, so that you don’t have to drag your opponent through the mud?
I think this is endemic of the whole problem with our political structure nowadays. With the two big parties in control, it’s an us vs. them battle where whoever has the majority blocks progress instead of working together to better society as a whole. Even with Rove having stepped down, I expect that we’re going to see an increasing set of antics leading up to next year’s presidential election. How many more times is Mitt Romney going to change his stand on the major issues? How many more funding scandals are going to be brought up by Republicans against Democrats or vice versa?
So who do I think would be the best ticket for next year’s election? Clinton/Obama. Hillary has proven herself as a Senator, and it’s time for a woman to take control of the country so that we can stop having the testosterone warmongering. Obama doesn’t have the experience to step right into the Presidency. He’s naive. I think that eight years as Vice President would get him the experience he would need to lead the nation. Plus it’s time for a minority in the White House.
Will my ideal ticket happen? Only time will tell, but it’s something to think about while ignoring all the mudslinging going on.
