    McClellan described the 3 decade progressive deterioration of our political system (neglected personalities); we desperately need change.

    it means "do it yourself" research and no longer depending on the media to slant views. It means getting involved, actually researching candidates instead of letting others make up our minds for us. It means I no long trust news stories on politics.

    I am sure that the media will help the Obama's play the victims to get the “awl” from the liberals so they will fall head over the heels with the rookie’s.

    It would mean more if the media would get out of the politics and just report the news not steer it.
