I know some who would probably do as well as anybody else. :-)  The  thing I 
hate most about political campaigns is that the populace is spoken to  like we 
are idiots. "Spin doctors" as a general rule turn me off.   Candidates are 
made to look like robots just spouting somebody else's  words.  I remember how 
much a cardboard figure Al Gore appeared to be in  2000; then I heard he speak 
extemporaneously, and he was amazing.  I also  loathe all the negative 
campaigning.  Seems we are inundated by every flaw  in the opposing candidate with 
everything they've said or done in the  past being taken out of context, and we 
are hardly ever afforded the opportunity  to hear them say what they believe 
or what they would do.  I was grateful,  in this current campaign, to live in a 
state that was not in question, although  our county was decidedly against 
the rest of the state.  The local  campaigns were enough!  Maybe we need a few 
less professional campaign  managers and more "normal" voters involved -- at 
least people who are more in  touch with reality.
Okay, enough of my rant.
