Differences in Presidential Candidates

Not normal whining about candidates, just something in Liberty magazine that got my attention. I've probably heard parts of the observation before, not just all at once in this context:

"there have been two types of presidential candidates: (A) those who had a perennial constituency — in Bill’s words, those “who always had a lot of people who wanted them to be president” — and (B) those who didn’t, those whom “nobody ever wanted to run.

 It wasn’t a difference between people with good ideas and people with bad ones, although Bill said that he’d always had a weakness for the old maxim that “the job should seek the man,” not the other way around. The difference had to do with the psychology of the candidates and of their willing or unwilling supporters. Because of that difference, there might also be a difference in the candidates’ campaigns and their performance in office, if they managed to get into office.

Fortunately, Trump and Hillary are so bad, differences are mute and moot.

Regardless, an evil piece of shit will preside in the oval office.

The American system of gubbamint has failed, it is just the dominos catching up now.
