I think that all elected officials should be mandated to serve in their underwear - only. Why? Well, this would greatly weed out the weasles and those of secret combinations as they have everything to hide. Only the pure in heart and those earnestly wanting to serve the people would be so bold as to run and serve in an elected office while at the mercy of the "breeze."
I have seriously considered running for public office and I have no problem doing so in my Fruit of the Looms. Why? Because I am a very short person. The media cameras' tripods don't go that low. Life often takes place over my head at 5'3". Even if they did go that low my big nose would be up against their lenses.
