Candidate, eXtreme!

Since everyone is throwing around amendments, why not lower the voting age? I remember being in high school and debating this candidate versus that candidate. I’m not sure if those conversations were as thoughtful as they would be now, but I can say that it would be interesting. MTV’s rock the vote campaign might actually matter. Political candidates with pop star endorsements. Big Soda would join Big Tobacco and Big Oil.

On the other hand, how can you reach out to a constituency whose parents can ground them so that they can’t reach the polls? It’s an interesting idea, one worth thinking about.
