What ever happened to "gravitas"?

Doesn't seem to me like it was that long ago that "gravitas" was a high order criterion for evaluating a Presidential candidate.

We never hear about it much anymore.

Maybe it's because the front runner and media darling has all the gravitas of a fruit fly.

How else can you describe a candidate who flits around without substance but lands on "change" and "hope" and "I didn't know they were saying that" long enough to get some media attention.

I can envision four years of bread and circuses. Your taxes and my taxes will pay for the bread. The circuses will feature a ringmaster spouting "hope" and "change."
