    "Most qualified" is a relative term. It isn't necessarily that impressive... though in certain circumstances it could be critical if the other viable candidate is a complete moron.

    Speaking generically.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    If indeed it comes down to a Clinton-Bush choice then it only serves to demonstrate what a shallow political pool the big fish are swimming in.

    That is the part that is very debatable, from any family dynasty politician. Because of, I should be concerned. So should you if you were thinking rationally about the matter.

People made the mistake of voting for Obama for what he represented rather than what he is/was and you see what a mess that got you into. Why are you so fixated on irrelevant stuff and not focused on who these two people are and what their policies/programs/governing styles will be?

    And as I've posted many times before, Jeb Bush is by far the most competent, intelligent, serious, even tempered, candidate in any party and he'd be a fantastic President.
    Lets be blunt shall we? While their familial relationship does have large bearing because of the apple doesn't fall far from the tree thoughts, the fact is both of those twits have been in power with less than stellar results and both have shown they are more of the same. More of the same just sucks.

I didn't and have voted third party in five of the last six elections.

    The problem is the Democrats and the Republicans have a monopoly on our election system. Both parties write the election laws as a mutual protection act and those special interests etc. who donate their millions upon million donate only to the two major parties. So any third party is starting about a billion dollars or more behind the big two.
    Need somebody like Ross Perot to break in and play the game in a unconventional manner.

    Both are more of the same. Honestly they both are more of the same and both suck.

    Yep, a billionaire who would use his own money to counter the billions corporations, wall street, special interests lobbyist give to the Republicans and Democrats. A man who has a vision for America that would catch the peoples fancy, perhaps some solutions to a couple of issues that the people want solved but both the Republicans and Democrats refuse to do so as the issues are worth more as campaign issues to them.

    Back in Perot's two runs only 39% of the electorate said they would consider voting for a third party candidate, today according to Gallup that is up to 81%. Back when Perot ran those who identified/affiliated with the two major parties were at 68% of the electorate while 30% identified themselves as independents. Today the two major parties are down to 51% while independents have grown to 47%.

    Yes, I do think if the right man came along with a strong message and vision the American people would latch onto him pretty darn fast. All the indicators are in place.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I agree, I think it is quite possible, Romney could have done that, and could again. The Pauls??? not a chance, I liked his dad, But this kid is no RON.
