Caveman for president

It troubles me that the writer of this commentary is a psychologist. First, I don't get the whole "comfort with aggression is sexy" bit. If a dude is going to drag me back to his cave by my hair, I want him to at least feel guilty about it. Second, is aggression really what we want in the next president? I think we've had plenty of that over the past eight years. You can take a stand and be tenacious without necessarily being "aggressive." Trying to reason with someone and speaking respectfully are not negative things in a politician - they're actually quite refreshing.

As they say in the education field, "If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always got." The way this country has always been run has gotten us where we are now (someplace I think we'll all agree we do not want to be)-- instead of rallying for more of the same, let's try something different. The results will be profound.
