one issue candidate...

as i listen to both candidates talk about the gaggle of things they are going to do during their first term and my mind is spinning. to think that they can do half of what they say is a crazy idea. blah, blah, blah.

what if a candidate picked one issue and only talked about that issue? i don't care which one... simply pick one.

"i'm sorry tom, i know you asked me about social security reform... but, as you know i'm only going to talk about finding alternative energy..."

let's face it, you can't do everything. what if everyday the president woke up and worked on one issue? i'm not saying he or she should ignore defense issues, supreme court appointees or the economy entirely, but used all of their energy to work on one issue until it was actually solved. i'm looking for the mindset that says, "why not work on one thing until you actually fix it".

i know this won't happen... but regardless of the issue, would you vote for this type of candidate?
