    We've flirted with dynasties. Two pairs of family presidencies, and perhaps another if Hillary Clinton runs (since if she does she'll likely win), the Kennedy and Roosevelt families, others.

    We seem to give more credence to "the name you know", one thing that's propelling Michelle Nunn, and the only thing that's propelling Darthette Cheney.

    Hard to say if our 200+ year experiment has done better than anything else. Systems work if the people involved want them to. Do we want this to work? Lotta apathy out there right now.
