Sure, there will be several issues like income inequality, climate change, and immigration dominating media coverage, but Steve Benen (Rachel Maddow Show) relays a quote from Rick Perry on another way in which the next President will make hugely important decisions.
"Something I want you all to think about is that the next president of the United States, whoever that individual may be, could choose up to three, maybe even four members of the Supreme Court," he said. "Now this isn’t about who’s going to be the president of the United States for just the next four years. This could be about individuals who have an impact on you, your children, and even our grandchildren. That’s the weight of what this election is really about."
Amazingly perceptive of Governor Goodhair (as Molly Ivins would have said).
