What’s the One Issue That None of the Presidential Candidates Are Talking About?

I am scheduled to appear on Good Morning America tomorrow (Wednesday, Jan. 16) at about 8:30 EST to talk about one issue that is, almost bizarrely, missing from all the campaign talk. It’s a subject that has figured prominently in past campaigns. Any guesses?

(Addendum: I’ll post the answer sometime tomorrow late a.m./early afternoon.)


Jason R

Jesus...Oh wait.

Eroom Tam

Abortion? Same sex marriage?

Shawn Smith

Wow. I had to go to comment #31 before someone mentioned the environment. Four years from now, I'm betting it will be top of mind.

Tit Tamblin

Re-opening the 911 commission?

ylight

Drunk Driving.

BK

Dennis Kucinich: Elf or pixie?

the Canadian

health care reform

Peter

Crime

H. Chad

Voting machines/paper trail

JYB

Gay marriage. It seemed like last election people cared more about two guys marrying than people dying in Iraq.

Greg

Compassionate conservatism?
The bedroom antics of the current president?
The Cold War?
Ghosts?

Charles

It has to be Social Security. I haven't heard anything about lockboxes this year.

Beda

The one issue that could spring us from oil tyrany--a moon shot on alternative energy.

John

Gotta be crime. It's completely absent from discussion, and definitely was an issue a few years ago

anon4rp

Abortion, Crime, Gay Rights, Guns, Global Warming have all been mentioned in the campaign thus far.

I'm going to go with "Character."

DeeCee

America's (lack of) competitiveness around the globe especially with the rapidly growing and increasingly competitive societies of China and India.

Bijan C. Bayne

Gun control.

Doug, CT

women's rights, aka abortion?

Joel

The War on Drugs

Dave

The Smoot Hawley Tariff Act?
