I was looking forward to a lot more substance from the first presidential debate tonight. I had hoped that one or the other candidate would clearly differentiate himself and make his case clearly of what he can do for this country and why I should vote for him.
Instead, the two men had a well-controlled, generally polite conversation full of sweeping statements that may or may not be factually accurate, each listening to the other with a disbelieving smirk that probably looked a lot like the expression on my own face.
The challenges facing our country and our world are so tremendous right now that it’s a wonder anyone would actually volunteer to be the man in charge. I already feel sorry for whichever one ends up with the job.
