We have older ones contemplating a run but they are all younger than Hillary. Santorum 56, Huckabee 59, Bush 61, Kasich 62 and Carson 63.
    Greetings, Vesper.

    My personal wish list? I would like to see a POTUS in their early 60s, with a younger VP, maybe mid to late 40s or early 50s, and I would like to see a former governor or businessman hold the position because they have dealt with the business aspect required of the job. A POTUS in their late 50s or early 60s is seen by the rest of the world as someone who has lived in the real world long enough to understand how things work, and people tend to trust them more when they speak, generally speaking. I realize that it's a "learn on the job" type of position, and age alone is only one factor to be considered, but if it's not too much to ask, can we have honesty, too?

    Local conditions: We have 5.5 inches of new snow on the ground, and it's still snowing. . . the last measurement taken at 2000 showed 11.5 inches total on the ground. It's not over yet, but it's not as bad as what was predicted, and my son has twice shoveled a path for the animals, so that's a plus. It's 35 degrees now, and the wind is blowing it into mounds in some places, so my driveway will have to be plowed so I can get my car out tomorrow. Since my snowplowing guy has to handle businesses first, he'll probably plow mine in the middle of the night again, poor guy!

    Ha. They were very successful in stuffing their own pockets and growing the power of the 1%. As was Clinton for that matter. Frankly, it's not a matter of one or the other being accomplished. Both major parties are full of corporate tools and selfish dirtbags. Which is why I have voted major party (Democrat) a whopping one time in any given national election. Never for President. And only a handful for state. Otherwise, it's been straight Libertarian/Green.

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    business finance =/= government finance.


    and for that matter, a younger person currently versed in the realities of the 'modern' economy is far more likely to "honestly" know how the "world works" (aka, BOHICA, peasants!)

    This is why I hate having my label as "slightly conservative".

    No, I never wanted Romney. Unfortunately for me (and i started a thread about this that apparently you missed), there is no true "Republicanism" label.

    But you're not the type of person to just judge somebody by their label, right ;-)

    Stop with the stupid and partisan posts.

    Let me dumb it down for you. If you were talking about 2 of your male friends doing every stupid thing they could to impress the same girl, nobody would accuse you of being a sexist for relaying the story.

    Just like nobody with half a functioning brain would accuse me of making a racist comment when I said (using a wishbone for an analogy - something that people with even slightly function brains comprehend) that the Republicans and Democrats are going to pull out every prop they can to try to compete for the Hispanic votes.

    I'll engage you again when your posts aren't so chuck full of failure.
