Did the Democrats Kill Tim Russert?

The U.S. Presidential Election Year is too long, especially since it lasts over two years.

I am sure that the stress of the long Democratic Primaries of 2008 killed Tim Russert.

All that coverage was practically political pornography, or something addictive and time-consuming, but ultimately leading to a far-off, indefinite payoff.

And think of the money wasted with these long primaries, hundreds of millions of dollars. And what does it buy? Fat-Cats' access.

Meanwhile, the rest of the world and our national business justs kills the clock, waiting for the election and the new administration. Waiting for a better deal, someone else to negotiate with, maybe to test.

Back when we were a rural nation, using horses for travel and communication, our quadrennial elections made sense, but we really need either a longer single term, or a Parliamentary system in which the leader leads with the confidence and support of Congress and the public.
