I am a cynic. I cannot deny it, nor would I ever try to do so. As much as anyone else does, I enjoy how alive the nation gets in an election year, watching as the most clever comedy writers explode with creativity and television editors can hardly sleep for the mining of the gold that takes place on the campaign trail. I can still recall in 2000 when many of my friends believed that our nation would be destroyed never to return if their candidate did not win. Many of my friends would argue that the country was irreparably destroyed. It was not.
