So exactly who are these people who should be making our decisions for us anyway? Let's look at the three most talked about albeit it that doesn't mean there is widespread knowledge of them. Of course, the leader of the pack, Hillary Clinton, is known. And most of us have heard of Bernie Sanders since he has garnered quite a bit of attention with large crowds in recent months. Thirdly, there is former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley, a leftist who might even be to the left of old Bernie if that is possible. I am not including the Vice President, Joe Biden, for he has not as of this time announced he will compete.
Hillary's claim to fame is as First Lady, where she handled all of the "bimbo eruptions" for husband Bill and his dalliances. She had a very lackluster record as a Senator from New York and her period as Secretary of State was fraught with scandal and has resulted in her negative approval numbers being monumental. Not someone likely to inspire you to trust her to lead, is she?
Next is Bernie Sanders, the curmudgeon of a Senator from Vermont who is the only card carrying Socialist in the Senate although the Democratic Party finds itself largely leaning heavily in that direction these days. Bernie wants to spend money and tax the rich heavily, more of the same Democratic malarkey that is unacceptable to most Americans and also doesn't give us much confidence.
And last is Martin O'Malley, who as Governor of Maryland put his state on the road to bankruptcy as millionaires bailed out in record numbers. O'Malley proves the adage once made by Margaret Thatcher that liberals do fine until they run out of everybody else's money. And with our nation teetering on the edge of financial disaster, a man with O'Malley's views certainly can't be the savior of the country.
My recommendation, folks, is that you sit this one out. The debate will be boring, unproductive and besides, the powers to be have already fixed things for Clinton. This means that she will be the party nominee for President unless her scandals break with more disastrous negative information which is by no means impossible. But get some sleep tonight and skip the debate, you can listen to the talking heads pontificate tomorrow.
Now if Trump was a Democrat it would be quite different but he was smart enough to stay clear from the git go. Besides, he's probably just itching for the chance to go at it with Hillary one on one if he prevails in Republican circles. Time will certainly tell so stay tuned.
