Age is probably what's going to prevent him from being elected, same problem with Biden. Remove 15 years from any of them and they'd be perfect candidate.

In any case, as long as Trump isn't re-elected it'll be fine, you can't do any worse (I think?)

Ssh! We don't want America to take that as a challenge.

And yeah, I think it's possible we could find someone worse than Trump:

Thankfully Roy's horse won't fit through the WH doors, so we're safe.

I was thinking the Toughest Sheriff in 'Merica© might be worse. And at 86 he has even that much more experience than Biden and Bernie.

Florida Democrats are denouncing Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders for refusing to call Venezuelan strongman Nicolas Maduro a dictator — a politically explosive issue in the nation’s biggest swing state.

Sanders also would not say whether he considered Venezuela’s assembly leader, Juan Guaidó, as the nation’s interim president, which is the position of the United States and a majority of Latin American countries European countries.

That's classic Bernie: 21st-century economic Leftism spoiled by 20th-century political Leftism.

And yet Cruz, one of the least likeable republicans in existence defeated democratic golden boy O'Rourke.

There's no accounting for taste.

So this is a thing that happened on a Fox News "town hall."



Not the response Fox was looking for.

Why isn't that the predictable response? Yes, it's a Fox News town hall, but it's also a Bernie Sanders town hall. You figure odds are that the room's going to be evenly divided on that question at best.
