As a retired editorial writer, it has been difficult to just sit on the sidelines as the presidential candidates continue ranting and raving about each other and the other party’s hopefuls. I was hoping the field would be culled to a workable number by now but, sadly, it has not. Political ambitions and egos die hard.
I also hoped the unfolding “reality political show” would have petered out by now, too. Not so. Americans love reality TV, and apparently reality political show sound bites keep many of us riveted to our tubes.
