Reality TV

Campaigning is like Reality TV. The best and the worst.  So why not have a reality TV show that is a real life campaign?  Two candidates vie for a real position. I wonder if you can have them win by audience vote? Wouldn't that be awesome, but probably unconstitutional. Fun though.

You could have taping of a two real campaigns, with their strategy, their precinct walking, their agonizing over mail, TV spots, arguments arguments between candidates who think they (or their second cousin the ad agency hotshot from Peoria) knows better than the consultant they are paying good money for.

Plus all the real life fun of last minute hit pieces, Twitter indiscretions,  ugly divorces and other juicy scandals.

Yeah, baby, let's do it!
