If you can't wait for this election to be over...

...raise your hand.

Did you raise it?  I sure did.

Between incessant mudslinging, accusations of groping, email controversies, and non-stop coverage of every little thing Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton say and do, I've just about had it.

Thankfully, we're less than two weeks away from the end of it all.

This is an election year unlike any we've seen before. It has felt more like reality television than anything else, and I think we can all agree that Donald Trump has had a lot to do with that.

Still, most people find neither candidate likable or trustworthy. It seems their aim is merely to vote for the person they hate the least -- the lesser of two evils, if you will.

I want to go back to the time where I could tune into CNN or Fox News and see at least a few stories peppered in about the economy, a breakthrough innovation, or something significant happening around the world.

I suppose Trump and Hillary bring in the ratings, and that's why they get so much coverage -- plus the fact that none of the news outlets want to feel like the odd man out when either candidate is holding a rally.

Trump is without a doubt a showman who knows how to manipulate the media to his advantage. For example, after each and every debate, he told media outlets in the spin room that "all the polls are saying I won."

I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if we were to see him unveil his new media empire -- rumors are swirling it'll be called Trump TV -- following the election, assuming he isn't the victor.

As for Hillary Clinton? If she ends up falling short, the world will be her oyster as far as job opportunities. She'll likely write a slew of books, become a college instructor, or simply invest her time in the Clinton Foundation.

I can't wait until this election comes to an end -- and I'm sure most of you are in the same boat.

How eager are you for November 8th to come and go?
