Why is it that american politics is so very absorbing?i find myself,a brit,keeping tabs on whats a happening across the pond. yet i ask myself would any american really care whether cameron or miliband led our country and the answer is no everytime.

so was wondering what is it that makes american politics look so rock and roll in comparison to ours?

Well as example, one of the biggest news stories here in britain this week was the Government backing out of their plans to put a tax on pasties. Riveting stuff, isn't it?

I don't know, the conversation level of American politics can be very superficial and full of empty grandstanding.  A more substantive adult conversation (such as focusing on a specific tax) would be harder to parse and less engaging.

It's the money. All that money buys a lot of exposure and outlets to watch the show.

 

They really need to do something about the ever-increasing ridiculous amount of money that goes into campaigns.
