WT’s Candidate Challenge (And More Mike Gravel)

Why Tuesday? is a cool organization working for election reform and better voter participation. They post smart, funny YouTube videos each week, chronicling their efforts. They’re also been posting videos in their Candidate Challenge, asking the presidential hopefuls whether they support election reform. The Democrats all gave good, fair answers answers — I actually really appreciated the front-runners’ positions for a change. The Republicans tended not answer at all: Ron Paul gave a real answer, Thompson ran from the camera, and I didn’t think Huckabee really addressed the question; the other Republicans declined the opportunity to tell the American people that they give a shit about democracy. So the results are unsurprising, but interesting to watch, anyway.

Last and unfortunately least*, Mr. Mike Gravel:

* Oh cruel world.
