Today’s Question: Who won debates … neither

I'm so depressed with this campaign I don't know where to start.

The debates confirmed my strong belief that the process of selecting the party candidates is broken. The fact that our choice for president is between these two men is a disgrace. There are many people on both sides that would make much better presidents than these two. The fact neither one reflects my personal views is one thing, but the lack of quality is so striking as to be shameful.

We as a country should be able to do much better than this. SInce I live in a state where my vote for president doesn't matter, I'm not faced with deciding between awful and more awful. Many people I talk to seem to be trying to convince themselves that their candidate really isn't as bad as they think he is. The truth is they both really are that bad.
