On some level we can understand what Ginsburg is getting at here. Politicians of all stripes do make lofty promises on a variety of issues, and sometimes these promises are practically unworkable [cough, repealing Obamacare, cough].
However…running for office (successfully, anyway) is about inspiring people to think of an idealized version of their world. Leaders are supposed to, well, to lead.
Creating a better future is a premise that works on all levels of politics; it’s the same reason why kids who run for student council promise to fill the drinking fountains with Hawaiian Punch. Leaders should have lofty ambitions. Otherwise, why follow?
But if Noel Ginsburg is intent on driving toward modest standards, we thought we should help him out. Pick your favorite slogan from the list below, or offer one of your own in the comments section.
