It might be a problem the way it's getting discussed here, but I think elections in the US (and increasingly elsewhere) are less about issues and "promises" and more about "character" which is easily invented in the mass media and proves repeatedly to be the easiest way to get people to vote for people with a howling mad agendas.

Conversely, the idea of candidates having commitments to specific programs, platforms and agnedas and running on that basis has provided the historic mandate for their taking office.
