I believe the United States is suffering from Bush and Clinton fatigue. We keep searching for ideal candidates, but are inundated with many of the same faces we've seen before. Therefore, if you had the ability, who would be your pick for president? Is there anyone you can think of who would unite the country, rather than drawing lines in the sand? Does religion, gender and race play a role in your selection process? Could we ever elect someone as a true independent or are we too polarized in ideology of party affiliation?

Either Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren, whichever one decides to run
I have liked Bernie Sanders for a long time because he doesn't pull any punches. I don't think he has the money machine to run. So far, Hilary is the only person to stop what is happening with the neoconservative right.
I can only imagine how crazy the far right would go if there was a Warren/Sanders ticket. If it were a game of wits without money then there is no doubt in my mind a Warren/Sanders ticket would win.
Just like you, I grew up in the 50s and 60s and no one has the power to tell me to relocate to Cuba, Red China, Iran or North Korea. Our views are polar opposites and quite frankly, I like mine much better than yours.
Page, I know that I do not have the "power" to tell you where to go, but I damn sure have THE RIGHT to do so. And to use a little old-school speak, every monkey thinks his is the cutest.
For whatever the reason you have put me on your radar. That's fine because I can run with the big dogs and I've heard you and your pack howling before. I'm neither intimidated nor swayed by your bark.
Page, all liberals are on my radar and the reason why is, such things as their legalized abortion, "sexual revolution" and glorification of homosexuality have laid waste to America's most vulnerable group of people, blacks.
Elizabeth Warren has the fire to go up against Wall Street and the financial institutions, but, as you say, I don't think she would beat Hilary in a primary. I like Ms. Warren a lot.
In spite of the Lewinsky scandal, Bill was a fantastic president. Let's hope Hilary follows the same path. I'm scratching my head wondering what "Some good things Republicans believe in," are, but, I can't come up with any.
