The Leaders We Deserve

While cleaning out some old TiVo recordings of America’s Voices, I stumbled across the truest statement I’ve heard during this entire primary season:

Tomorrow morning, when you’re brushing your teeth, and you look in the mirror, you are looking at yourselves when you describe the politicians that you vote for. And think about why we don’t have better politicians, because maybe we reward people who we don’t think meet our standards by voting for them rather than voting for them rather than voting them out of office.
