The only eminently qualified presidential candidate from either party is Hillary Clinton.
The rest are all wackos, shysters and religious zealots - a good description of most Americans, especially when you throw in assault weapons.
22:02 - don't listen to her voice, read what she has to say.
Do you switch to Fox? Another group of wackos.

If credentials matter, Hillary Clinton is miles better than the rest .
The inexorable grind of prejudice keeps on truckin'
Bernie Sanders has a compelling message. He encourages people to believe they might have a say
In their future.
To be sure, wackos, shysters and religious zealots are prominent in the race.
I don't agree they are representative.
They are just noisier and more strident. Like bullies everywhere.
They have more T.V., Radio stations and other news outlets to lend credence to greed and arrogance
But they don't have the stage all to themselves. There's a more than favourable balance of intelligence and insight and depth.
I have to say,I find the drama of American politics captivating.
No script has more authentic dialogue. Few actors play their roles with greater skill than American politicians, writers and journalists.
Canadians may be a kinder gentler society or the contours may just be slightly more blurred.
We have no grounds to be dismissive or condescending.
Greed and arrogance and lack of social conscience may be just as prevalent though slightly less evident.
In the last Ontario and federal elections, both wins were by default.
People who should be offering to serve...don't.
Mediocrity is an affliction we endure.
