That's what it should be, if our politicians were being honest. Of course, they're not. I say "of course" because we Americans have finally realized that we've been played like fools. The trust that's needed to keep us together has been dissolved by the decades of toxic dishonesty. As a nation, as an economy, we are coming unglued.
When the presidential-wannabes talk about change, their proposals fall so pathetically short of what we need to do as a country, one could argue it wouldn't really matter if Sarah Palin took power. She may be vacant, but so what? She's no emptier than the promises the others are making.
