I remember my first and last election where I voted for a candidate: Reagan in 1984.  Since than I have progressed from voting against the greater evil to finally voting for a candidate that didn’t leave me feeling like I needed to go shower with a scouring pad and industrial toilet cleaner after leaving the polling place.

So is it just me getting jaded with my advancing age of thirty – something years old (denial is not just a river), has there really been a change in the quality of candidates running for office or is this just the result of failing memory?
