Don't Get Too Specific

The success of Barak Obama and Mike Huckabee is their vagueness. They fulfill America's desire for change without being burdened with particulars. Their popularity continues America's long dislike for thought (and intellectuals): "I'm too busy with my everyday 'pursuit of happiness' to think. I dislike anyone who's fixated on it. Just give me vague promises, stay out of my way and let me get on with my practical life". (Thus explains the state of our present educational system.)
