Politics ain’t what it used to be

I watched a special documentary about Richard Nixon last night.

I was mesmerized by the show. And taken aback by various segments.

In the debate between Nixon and Kennedy, they were actually kind to each other, spoke highly of their opponent and sincerely wanted the office of President so they could serve the people.

Nothing like what we have digressed to these days.

Sad.

One response to “Politics ain’t what it used to be

  1. Agreed. Things aren’t as … elegant as they used to be. Politics of today is ugly, unforgiving — powered by the desire to rule, not lead.
