the lesser of two evils, or more
as one follows the political discourse of the current debate as to what direction this nation, and the world in general, should move toward it is clear that there is enough merit to go around. Clinton, Romney, Obama, Edwards, Thompson, McCain, Giuliani and the rest. Looking into the candidates views can seem like looking into a crystal ball that is cloudy. At first glance we think we understand, but it seems the closer we look the less we can see. The use of strategists, campaign managers, media advisers and similar people is, it seems, all about getting elected, not about serving. Why is it we always end up voting for the lesser of two evils? Was Washington the lesser of two evils?
