It has already started. This week I saw the first of the president’s reelection television campaign commercials. That means we have three solid months of being ring-side as the Democrats and the Republicans bombard the airwaves with their mind-numbing platitudes.

A reelection campaign is a rather undignified way for our president to spend his summer and fall. Every four years our leaders have to run for prom queen. The whole process preserves democracy but makes our politicians look like fools. There has to be a better way to campaign than kissing hands and shaking babies.

There is a lot of speculation about whom Gov. Romney will select as his vice presidential running mate. Will he select a woman to share the ticket?

The bloggers are chattering about the possible selection of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. She is a fascinating woman. At 5’8” tall, the attractive Rice looks like an African American Barbie doll. She is an excellent role model for women of all ages. She would also be a good racial balance to the, oh, so Caucasian Romney. Is it okay for one Caucasian to point out that another Caucasian is very white-bread?
