I would be inclined to disagree. Candidates should be selected in a vacuum, not because of an ad or series of ads.
It is careful to examine what we're trying to attain here. The person who runs the best campaign or the person more suited to run the country?
By simpler I mean the simplest way to choose the best person for the job. It gets more complicated when one person has more money than an entire town and spends that money to sway millions. Whose interests are best at heart here, the country or that guy?
