    Why Do Americans Prefer Sports to Politics?

    During a visit to Washington DC in June, I saw an estimated 200,000 revelers in the street to celebrate what some called “the greatest day of my life.” The cause for jubilation wasn't some political victory; it was the clinching game that enabled the Washington Capitals to win hockey's Stanley…
