Reason Writers Around Town: Matt Welch on the Great McCain-Obama Boxing Match


All week at The Los Angeles Times, reason Editor in Chief Matt Welch is debating University of Southern California law professor Kareem Crayton about the upcoming election and John McCain's and Barack Obama's policies (or lack thereof).

"This is the most important election in the history of ever," writes Welch, "and even if it's not, maybe talking about it for a week will make these last 30 days go faster….To paraphrase Elvis, all the world of politics is a stage, and the dramaturgy of the past two months has been, in almost every instance, more interesting and probably more revealing than the substance of any soliloquy."
