The world would be a better place if people stopped voting for folksy candidates they could have a beer with and started voting for people smarter than they are.

– Marcus Sakey, Brilliance

I wonder what politics would look like if media focused on politicians’ qualities for being able to lead a country instead of looking for quotes that can be misinterpreted when taken out of context? I wonder what politics would look like if media focused on similarities between the parties instead of focusing on the small differences between what they think and what they do? We need to start in what we agree on, to be able to have a good conversation about what we disagree on.
