People are "hung up" on politics because it directly influences our daily lives, both in the present and in the future. Every law that's passed, every tax dollar that's taken, every constitutional right that's upheld or violated, every soldier that's lost in war - it all comes down to politics. In this country we have what relatively few people in the world have, a chance to directly influence and impact the way we are governed. I don't see how anyone can be indifferent.
People are "hung up" on politics because it directly affects the quality of lives that people lead. This explains why it is very important for any politician seeking a governing position in America has to work around policies that are all about improving the people's livelihood; like a better healthcare system and a stable economy.
