ACROSS THE board, this has been a dismal campaign, highlighted mostly by impotent candidates, a disaffected electorate and a media that don’t know what to do with either, writes Gersh Kuntzman for NWeek

Such a boring, issueless campaign is an amazing thing considering how many important issues are in play right now. Should we go to war with Iraq? What should we do about the economy? How can we improve public schools? What can we do to develop new sources of energy so that we don’t have to be in hypocritical alliances with countries like Saudi Arabia?

Kuntzman's campaign solutions:

More Dan Rather. ... This ornery Texan has become the highest-paid loose cannon in television. ...
Eliminate political advertising: It’s never informative and it’s never fair.
