Voters Elect Politicians

leave a comment »

Ever hear someone describe a politician as being incompetent? Hardly a surprising statement but the elected ones have proven to be quite competent… at campaigning. Both parties focus on qualified campaigners who can ‘bring in the money’ and capture endorsements. An individual could be adept at administration and superbly capable at managing complex affairs but if the campaign dogma is not satisfied, such a person will garner no party support. Honesty, integrity, and mental acuity, are not necessary attributes for a competent campaigner, but the lack of them seem to give an edge to the candidates running for election. This may lead one to consider the acumen of most voters.
