This has to be one of the worst Presidential elections in recent history. I thought '04 was particularly bad when the Democrats couldn't front a candidate to beat Bush, but at least Bush had some popular support. In this election, neither candidate has popular support, with both running around 70% unfavorable. In other words, no matter who wins, the majority of the country does NOT want them as President. We need to carefully consider how our system got us into this position, and how we can avoid it in the future.
Personally, I'm in favor of major overhaul and a transition to direct democracy, but I think there are a plethora of alternatives that are more resistant to corrupt manipulation than our current system. Even a parliamentary system would at least give other viewpoints a voice in governance rather than the binary system we have now.
