Agree about Cabinet picks

Reader comment on item: Superficiality Reigns Before the Election

Submitted by sara (United States), Nov 4, 2012 at 17:11

If you call this superficiality, what do you call the young people who vote based on looks, smile, coolness, the wife being pretty or whatever silly ridiculously superficial trappings they get into their heads. That is the real superficiality problem- the right to ignorance.

For those who try to research and understand, there is a constant frustration at having the MSM determine what they think we should care about or know about.

Yes, it would be a great idea to know ahead of time the candidate's cabinet picks, but again, it does not change the basic voting goal. You either voter for capitalism or socialism (both modified versions). You either vote for entitlements or opportunities to earn or as you well described federalism. Cabinet post selections would do nothing to change these basic attitudes. I may not like everything about Romney, but I still will always prefer him to Obama.

If this were done during the primaries, it might have more meaning.
