    In reading many of the posts here as well as the comments section of Yahoo, the message I'm getting more than any other is: I'm going to vote for ____ because they're better than _____. I see very little enthusiasm for one's political choices, only that they are going to vote for that person because they are unhappy with the others. So...are you happy with the candidate of your choice?

    As is pretty much always the case, there isn't a perfect candidate. What's new?

    It's too early to be sure, but from what I hear, I'd be pretty happy with Kasich or Walker.

    From what I've heard, I'd campaign for Walker, but sit out the election if Kasich were candidate.
    As always, new information may alter my perceptions.

    I can't believe people actually think other people will beat Hillary or Jeb.

    It's like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

    For once, I agree.

    The difference between us is, you think there's someone better than those two; I think there's no-one less awful than Hillary. Which is sad enough.

    Once again we agree., other than HIllary being the less aweful. I'm not sure who is worse, Jeb or Hillary. What we do agree upon is that Hillary will be appointed 8 more years. I even saw this coming as far back as 2008 when people thought I was jumping the gun regarding HIllary running in 2016. LOL.

    The issue for me is this corrupt system that is so predictable a monkey could guess who will be the next president for the next 8 years.

    I'm tired of all this power in such a corrupt dysfuncional place. I have no interest in voting for the most benevolent dictator.

    Bernie Sanders is my man. He's got my enthusiastic vote in the Democratic primary.

    You can't fool me, I know you are a Trump man.
