What bothers me most is not just the emptiness, but the thought that that's the only thing that can get someone elected.

You're right, it's pretty damn depressing. I think someone could get elected on substance if they could get their message out widely enough. But the people (like Obama) who have the means to do that don't have the inclination, and the people who have the inclination don't have the means. Much of which is thanks to the media, which takes its role as the gatekeeper of allowable thought very seriously.
