Remember when the 2008 presidential election was supposed to be different?
The Republicans nominated John McCain, a war hero too honorable to engage in the politics of personal destruction. The Democrats nominated Barack Obama, a rising star who had captured the nation's imagination by promising to heal the divisions of the past.
I've come to the conclusion that if the Republicans nominated Mother Teresa and the Democrats nominated Mahatma Gandhi, we'd end up with a campaign that was no more or less negative than every other campaign.
Gandhi, after all, would have voted against funding the troops. Mother Teresa? She accepted money from Charles Keating.
