I’ve always been amused by politicians who promise the world in order to get elected — big, vague promises that no elected leader can possibly accomplish, and that politicians have no ability or authority to do anything about.
As a political outsider, I found those promises amusing. Now that I’m running for office, I see their value. So here goes — my first big, unrealistic campaign promise: Vote for me, and the Phoenix Suns won’t get ripped off by NBA officials anymore. Not if I can help it.
