    I agree with that. I also think the age should be put back to 21 unless you are in the military.

    Of course not.
    However there should be a minimum standard for the man running for office..
    I did like the idea of debates, too bad there was no real moderator and that neither knew how to debate..
    I voted for neither....or "none of the above".

    Perhaps it would be better if politicians just tried to raise the general and political awareness as well as education & smarts of everyone.
