Dull

While I am glad the Hillary Clinton will win the election (not that I think she is an exceptional candidate), I do find it dull that by all accounts the election is really. A done deal.   It would be a lot more fun to watch and listen to if the race were a close race.  

That said, a very novel idea just occurred to me.... what if the election were to actually be based on SUBSTANCE instead of personalities and vitriol and muck raking?!?!  That hasn't happened in a helluva long time.  If it were actually to focus on substance, that would be very interesting.... and would be unheard of in today's age of sound bites and short attention spans.  

Just some thoughts as I finish my morning pipe before heading to the U.

A worthy sentiment, Professor, but has there ever been a candidate less likely to inspire serious debate than The Orange One (as we call him in the jungle)?
