If Alzheimer’s were a campaign issue

This morning, I opined on Twitter that if a political candidate endorsed full research to eliminate Alzheimer’s, I’d be all in regardless of what other positions s(he) held.

If there’s a more unjust illness, I’m not aware of it.

It also underscores the bedrock of American presidential campaigns: merciless trivia and boogeymen disguised as real issues.

Is it that hard to imagine a campaign in which actual non-polarizing issues could be part of the public debate?

No. It’s reality right now in Canada.
