The Hollow Men: boomer candidates, diminished expectations

Character ought to matter more than it does, but it continues to be redefined and de-emphasized.

The candidates reflect who we are and, with half of all American couples headed for divorce, we aren't as concerned as we used to be about the vows exchanged between a man and a woman. Ronald Reagan was the nation's first divorced president.

The traditional view of marriage as a once-in-a-lifetime experience is gone with the 20th century.

For millions of baby boomers, sampling illicit drugs as a young person was - and is - no big deal. If that disqualified a person from leadership, there would be a huge void at the top of the political, business, scientific and educational ladders.
