If you don't know who's running for president by the time Election Day rolls around, then you must be working hard to avoid coverage -- and you shouldn't be voting. Checking out the names of the two guys running isn't enough time to make an informed decision, and when you're choosing the leader of the free world, knowing who you're picking is key.
