I came across an old (Feb. 2007) CNN article about a poll showing Giuliani neck and neck with McCain, and Hillary leading the Democrats. It got me to
thinking..that was over a year and a half ago!
Which brings me to my point: I think that the political election system in the US needs an overhaul. We spend way too much time with primaries,
caucuses, polls, debates, etc. By the time the election rolls around, most of us (at least me) are ready to burst from the constant news coverage of
which candidate slipped a point in a poll and which candidate committed a minor blunder during a speech.
It's no wonder the candidates have to raise such huge amounts of money to get elected. Who benefits from all this?
Can't we wrap this entire thing up in six months or less?
