Let’s shorten political campaigns. Political campaigns keep getting longer and longer.

I remember seeing some news stories surmising who might run for president in 2016 the morning after President Barack Obama was re-elected, and some people have already been approached about it and have either been noncommittal (that means they’re throwing their hat in the ring) or already said they don’t want to run.

The last campaign went on for the better portion of two years, which makes me wonder how long we’ll have to endure the next one.

Can we please call on our leaders to shorten up this process to not only save time and money, but also to preserve our collective sanity?
