"When someone runs for office, the first question they’re asked is: 'Why are you running?' No matter how lowly or lofty the office, the question is the same. Most of the time the answer consists of a series of promises, things the candidate says he will 'do' if elected. It doesn’t matter if the promise has anything to do with the function and authority of the office; the only thing that matters to the politician is that promises gets him or her votes. Unfortunately for the voting populace, it is easier for the politician to make a thousand promises than it is to keep just one." (10/29/11)
