    The Republican field is an absolute joke this time around, so they're all completely out. As for the Democrat field, I'll take Good Ol' Bernie and O'Malley any day of the week over Hillary. The only way Hillary would get any support from me is if the Republicans add no one new (and sane) to their lineup and Hillary ended up winning the Primaries. Even then, I would still check her box with a grimace and a groan.

      Yep, this sums up my thoughts on it too, and boy oh boy would I have to drag myself kicking and screaming to vote for Hillary.  In fact, if she gets the nod, I'm pretty sure we'll end up with one of these republicans due to low turnout sad.

    Candidate: Donald Trump. Why: he's a douche.

      That would be my answer, as well.

    Any Republican candidate except Christie.  He is the only serious R-candidate, and I'd only vote for him if Sanders got the Democratic nomination.

    That would be Hillary Clinton for a number of reasons, including we don't need any more Bush, or Clinton in the presidency.

    We already saw what they can do or not do.

    The democratic party in 2008 didn't support her, for president, and Obama didn't choose her for VP. and she hasn't done anything outstanding since that time to make her any better choice today.

    Like her husband, they both like to play word games instead of answering truthfully about
    questionable acts. Bill, even successfully redefined what is and is not sex. Although we all thought it was all sex.

    She is a slick politician, not quite as slick as her husband, but slicker than most of the politicians in DC.

    It is these slick experienced politicians that got us to 2008 and the meltdown, and we are skimming along the bottom now.

    We need a new strategy, and a new paradigm for politicians. How about, putting the People back into By, Of, and For/

    The current presidential campaigns are being judged by people as a personality contest, and not on their positions on the issues. This distracts from making any valid conclusions about the candidate.

    People also don't like hearing the truth about the state of the country. The politicians don't want to talk about it either because they were partly to blame.

    At this point, I'm leaning away from any Democrats.  I voted for Obama last time, and I am not happy with him these days.  I think another Democrat would be a continuation of Obama.

    Hillary Clinton. She is the personification of every reason why people hate politicians.

    On the Republican side, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, and Rick Perry, because they are too far to the right.

    I don't know if it's my computer or what, but it seems like if  want to say anything against Trump, my computer messes up.  I think he is like a little boy running around in a suit and tie and yelling, "Look at me!"  Yeah and the computer just messed up again but got it working
