The last election cycle in Canada lasted 78 days and they seem to be doing just fine over there.

I'm hoping for Warren, but I'm not sure if she can motivate enough people to actually win the presidency.

I've seen it argued that American democracy is the most cantankerous and stupid because it's effectively the first. Watching Americans make politics is like watching Mennonites make bread - there are faster, more efficient ways to do it but fuckin' hell God wants us to do it the slow way as we have done since sixteen diggity two.
