RE: Do we really want un-informed citizens to vote?
Kirk, you just did it, too.
You assume that your perceptions are correct, and only those who agree with you are "presidential". The ability to see many shades of gray instead of in the moral clarity of black and white, is not, neceassarily "correct". It does make sense in your, humanistic, world where moral absolutes do not exist. But in a created world, good and evil are real. Calling evil, evil shows an understanding of its true nature.
I keep saying this is all reflective of the cultural war more than simply politics.
The other statement that we are asked to select a president based on five hours of debate is simply what you want peole to do. The debates are only one of many factors in that decision. Other factors include the candidates personal history, their records, their character, and their view of the future for this country, and others. If I were electing a debater, I'd vote for Kerry. But that is a false choice---What we are electing is a President---and I just can't believe that what Kerry says is what Kerry really will do. Can you?
