Politics and Politicians

I have not lived my life and made my choices with a constant reflection on how electable I am. Nor am I an extrovert. I need my sleep, and I hate coffee. I don't tolerate fools, and I seem to be unable to hide it, or am not practiced enough (that is, I've tried).

I think it is a normal human behavior to elevate process over product, and to judge product by process rather than outcome. So what about our electoral process creates good product? We obviously like it, or we'd be trying harder to change it; it must work well enough that accepting the results is a more satisfying choice than change.
