politics { This phrase sums me up as political voter

From an article on salon.com

From the start, the Democratic field offered only varying degrees of dissatisfaction: Where was the candidate who believed that all Americans deserve educations, healthcare, the right to marry whom they please, and more reproductive freedoms than they could possibly use up in a lifetime? He or she did not exist, at least not in any purely terrestrial incarnation.

Why don't we have a viable candidate that represents these values? Kucinich comes the closest, but he's like Ron Paul, not electable.

Its sad that I think more people paid attention to last week's Super Bowl than have the last 2 years to the state of this country.

To quote a friend, "We get the government we deserve."
