I come from a political family and, as such, have always been fairly well versed in the issues, candidates beliefs, etc. We have all been like that as
long as I can remember. I think it took until Obama-mania before I realized just how shallow most American voters really are.
Who the heck cares what they look like? I am still struggling to figure out how looks have come to influence this election SO much. Who is the man?
Why on earth would I possibly want to vote him into the highest position in the land without knowing WHO he is.
And yes, I do completely agree with all those people who wondered why it was so hard to produce a birth certificate. Yes, it is his personal life. The
same life he is purposely thrusting into the spotlight in his bid to become the person who will lead this country for the next four years. It's just
like any other job - if we truly are the people who "hire" him, then I should get to know his basic information. My employer sure does, so how is
this any different?
