Both Grist and Mooney, however, focus on just the presidential election. It’s easy to do, but I think this is a mistake. People are beginning to place all their faith in the next president to fix all the messes of the one we’ve got now (including Iraq, education, climate change, and the rest). No matter who we elect as the next president, he or she just isn’t going to be able to solve those problems alone. People need to focus on smaller, more local efforts and candidates, to create a sea change from the ground up. — Bennett Gordon
