Donald Allen is an idealist. He talks about the major issues of today (Energy Independence, Social Security, Healthcare, etc.) but his campaign is exactly what I would expect for a person running for city council in a city of 25,000. Some people may be nostalgic for a time when leading our country was a matter of leading the people and expecting them to live virtuous lives. That is not the day we live in. We live in a bureaucracy with so much momentum that it requires an understanding of the mechanisms in motion in order to safely make a change. Dr. Allen would not be prepared for such a job as President.
