I am an Independent and would like to know who you are watching and think would make a good candidate for President in 2016 and why. I haven't decided on anyone yet so I am hoping you will persuade me to be interested in your possible candidate. I challenge you to get my interest writers.
sort by best latest
I heard a rumor some time back that the next election was determined near 100 years ago by some Brits, Scandinavians, and those who read the Brothers Grimm offering their prophetic prose and poem. Something about cards, the hands dealt, and time.
Scotty's is having problems in the engine room Spock will beam you back.
I think Martin Sheen might be a good president, he already has 7 years experience on West Wing. What do you think?
I respectfully disagree. I think all citizens of the US benefit if we start letting politicians know about the qualities, principles, platforms, and people we want to see as President. Developing Presidential ability takes decades, let's plan ahead.
It is never too early if you find someone you really want and know they can be a possible candidate. They new our support to get to the primaries.
And, by the way, I think Obama should move down to VP. He needs more experience. He'd make an excellent, seasoned President in 2024 after 16 years in the White House.
Not a fan of Hilary don't know of anything significant she did. She did not take responsibility of Benghazi and blamed it all on the Assistant Secretary. She is not honorable - I worked for the gov for 30 years, believe me when I say she knew,
I can't disagree, but I can't find anyone else. Might she be the least of all evils?
Maybe I should be looking at successful state governors. I think maybe governor should be a prerequisite to President.
Governors are a good idea, Zipper. There were several good Democratic governors n the 2008 primaires. By the way, do you think it's interesting that no one else has suggested a specific candidate who might actually run?
When you are eligible to vote I think you will make the right decision. But remember that sometimes you have to pick the better of two evils to keep the damage to a minimum.
If we decide on a person we feel strongly about we can help them get to the primaries with financial support and by getting the word out to everyone we know about the person we support. That is why I need to find out early who I want to support.
Thank you, this is the kind of info I am looking for.
You bet, Zipper. Here is a link you can copy & paste. It's from a NM publication, if you are interested. It's strange that no one else gave you any names, except Hilary....
yes we all need to do our own research once we have a few people we think we might be interest in so we can follow them check their voting records and support them financially and write article about them.
Maybe you would be a good candidate.
Give some thought to who you want to be in congress as well seeing how we the people are supposed to be the government.Not a figurehead that we think of as a savior.
Sorry you couldn't help me out. I know how you feel but I think there is one out there and I won't quit until I find that person.
LadyBlueWriter - might that person just happen to be you?
SidKemp Thank you for your vote of confidence I will start campaigning tomorrow lol.........
