What’s the most depressing number concerning the upcoming presidential election? I nominate 11 – why? No – that’s not the number of Republicans running for the nomination – actually, we have even more – and it’s not the number of hundreds of millions that people will spend in campaigns that go nowhere.

Eleven is particularly alarming because that’s the number of months between the recent kick-off of active campaigning in New Hampshire and the actual date of the nation’s first primary early next year. Can you imagine eleven months of gotcha politics, negative ads and trivial issues before even a single vote’s cast? And then another nearly ten months before Americans finally make their final decision?

Yes, the public’s become deeply disillusioned with the political process in part due to the interminable length of our presidential campaigns.
