Why doesn't BGP...

Look, I can do a "show interface" on any interface and see what speed
it's running at and if it's dropping packets. If BGP hears a route
on an interface that isn't dropping packets shouldn't _that_ route
be considered "best" all other things being equal (hop counts and
all)? You can't tell me the router doesn't know this information
because _I_ get the information from the router itself!!

And the next hop router? ? And the dampening?
