What you overplay, LSD, is the importance of the Presidency in times of peace. The WHAT IF? scenarios are endless. The world and the US would not end if any of the four candidates were to ascend to the office. None represent the kind of change that some of our historic Presidents have embodied.

Capone is dead right about the nature of politics and politicians. No one gets to a position of power and influence on the national level without being beholden to special interests. The Democrats are in bed with corporate America every bit as much as the Republicans. Just look at campaign contribution data.

The differences are cosmetic, not fundamental.

The events of a President's tenure end up defining them. Rare have been those men who shaped events around them.

Getting all riled up over this crap is pointless.

This thread is a perfect example of the ideological battle that has defined and paralyzed our system of government for decades.

But then again, that is EXACTLY how it is supposed to work.
