Do you see the pattern there? 4 or 8 year terms. One comes in, does some bad stuff, gets removed. The successor is the popular choice (and B.O. was a popular choice in a mass-hysteria kind of way). No government is going to reduce their own power.

I don't think it really matters who comes in - as some say, they (reds and blues) are just two arms of the same body.

It's all about perceived and purported stereotypes:

Politics: boring!
Cinema: Fun!
Law: incomprehensible!
Soap operas: addictive!
Economics: complicated!
Reality TV: Best thing ever!

I reckon 'they' are quite happy with these stereotypes. It lets them run the world while the majority sit and absorb rubbish.
