Here’s an idea for future elections – in America or anywhere else:
What if you as a candidate went out and fully acknowledged the voters’ right to vote for the other guy? If you could campaign in a way that was fully appreciative of the results achieved by your opponent(s)? What if you refrained completely from spin and stuck to the facts? What if your intention was not to make people vote for you, but rather to supply people with the information needed to make their decision?
One day, when I’m prime minister of Denmark, this is how I’ll have run my campaign :o)
