Voters are faced with choosing between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the two worst candidates we have seen in a long, long time. Trump is loathsome as a person and is totally unqualified to be president by temperament and experience. After running his business like a medieval fiefdom, there is no way he would respect our democracy. Clinton is an unpleasant person who I trust as far as I can throw Chris Christe. She does have experience but not much to brag about. She was in charge of the failed Clinton health care initiative and the disastrous Obama-Clinton foreign policy.
Nonetheless, we need to make a choice. Not voting or voting for a third party candidate is a copout. However, I have an idea that could make our choice more palatable and guarantee victory for the party follows my advice. All they need to do is flip the ticket and have Mike Pence or Tim Kaine at the top. They don’t have anywhere near the negatives of their running mates. Both are more experience, having served as governors and in Congress.
I admit this isn’t a serious proposal. They may not make good candidates because of a lack of charisma. It’s a real shame we choose our candidates the same way we choose movies and TV shows.
