Why can't we.......
TVW, the Wash state equivalent of C-Span, shows interviews with various state candidates. I'm highly impressed by tonight's interview with the three candidates for State Treasurer. Allan Martin (R), James McIntire (D) and Chang-Mook Sohn (D).
All have deep experience, great insight and foresight, and refreshing candor about problems and advantages. A randomly chosen vote will give us an excellent treasurer.
Best point in the interview was from McIntire:
Q: What will you do to encourage financial literacy?
A: I'd start by trying to educate some of those Wall Street folks, who apparently have no understanding of basic economics. [After that, he gave a more serious answer about modernizing the financial training of high-schoolers in this state.]

Why oh why can't we have EVEN ONE candidate of this quality in EITHER PARTY for ANY OFFICE at the national level????? In a country of 300 million people, why can't we have a choice of equally competent candidates instead of equally and abysmally stupid and corrupt traitors and criminals?
