I think it is safe to say that we all want this election to be over. It’s way too long and it seems to get more nasty on a daily basis. We Americans were birthed in volatile campaigns so this is not a new phenomena. It is only new for a generation. If you study the Jefferson campaign, this looks tame. Besides, we would miss the real meaning of this campaign. We have two candidates who are representatives of our transitional period. During this transition, we must make changes to the status quo and this is what it looks like.
