"Simple is not necessarily a good thing. Simplistic is definitely not a good thing, yet I hear a lot of people, including some on the Peninsula, so upset with the current political squabbling, saying that they cant wait to throw out all incumbents.
Indulging in this simplistic thinking and avoiding considering all the complexities of various politicians contributions or lack of them is a cop out. Its certainly easier, but throwing out all incumbents means throwing out experience and good judgment. As Americans, blessed as we are with a superior history and form of government, we owe it to ourselves and fellow Americans to spend the time to look carefully at each candidates experience and positions and vote accordingly.
