A New Era in American Politics?

One thing I have learned in my life is that few things get people excited more than politics. I have really made an effort to avoid political blogs.  However, I am the President of the school district I graduated from in a small northern Wisconsin town.  So, I am involved politically.

One thing I am fascinated with is the selection of Paul Ryan for Veep.  He seems serious and he seems to know his stuff.  He is different from anyone I have seen in Washington.  He seems to be willing to put the long term best interests ahead of his own political career.  This is something that I have not seen out of a Republican or Democrat before.

The old political joke that I have heard is that Veeps are like spare tires.  You have to keep them in the trunk but keep them inflated and ready to go at any time.  I do not know if Romney intended to put his Veep front and center but it seems to be working that way.

The one outcome I do hope for is that the candidates spend more time on issues than they do bloodying one another.  I hope Ryan sticks to issues and not mud.

Here is a nice article from the Wall Street Journal:
