Who would you pick for president?
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?
At this point, I'd vote for Hilary Clinton. I liked the Clinton administration and agree with the things Democrats believe in, though there are some good things Republicans believe in.
Bernie Sanders - but it would never be allowed to happen. I like that he isn't afraid to call out stupidity on either side of the aisle. Most see him as far too liberal though - because of the way media loves to demonize that word.
I think he would be maybe our one shot at overturning some of the nonsense that has built the current oligarchy in this country, but I have to tell you I'm losing hope.
A vote for Hillary from me will only be a vote against whatever craziness they introduce on the other side. Repubs haven't had a moderate in ages and have allowed their party to get hijacked by far right wing extremists.
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.
If I could pick anyone it would be Elizabeth Warren. However, I don't think it's realistic to think any Democratic candidate can beat Hillary for the nomination so I'll very likely be hoping she's our next President.
I would also pick Elizabeth Warren. She was one of the most vocal critics of wall street and big banks after the crash, and she is one of the few politicians who has continued to pursue them after they got away with murder.
My pick for president is whoever wins the Republican nomination.
And polarization born from differing and opposing views on the issues (whatever they may be) keeps the nation vibrant, and it also keeps us free.
Now, if you want to live in a society in which there is little or no polarization, and in which nearly everyone is on the same page, relocate to Cuba, Red China, Iran or North Korea.
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.

"...In Democratic circles, disappointment in the promise of the Obama presidency and unease over a possible restoration of the Clintons have made the senator, who was sworn in just 10 months ago, the object of huge interest and the avatar of a newly assertive, fervently populist left eager for...
