Hoping for good people to run for office is necessary of course, but it’s not a solution. I used to be one of those non-partisan voters who said he evaluated the characters running for office and picked whomever seemed most qualified. No more. Our system has become so badly skewed to favor wealthy Americans that systemic (Constitutional) reforms have to be put front and center. The popularity contest / reality shows that now dominate our politics are a disgrace, a symptom of the plutocratic syndrome, not a cure.
