    All that really matters is if the voters approve of your opponent (or opponents) even less....

    The guy is universally beloved. If he runs for office then he gives that up.
    That is one of his smartest moves, in not speaking out in a way that offends either side.

    I'd say he juiced to get to a certain point, but after that he stopped and is just maintaining that kind of strength.

    Agree the bar has really been set low. But on the other hand your right - anyone would be better than the current occupant of the WH.

    Will be interesting to see if BLOUTS get's a primary challenge - it's possible if his poll numbers continue to tank.

    That would be very interesting....if it were to ever pan out.

    Kasich sounds possibly ready. Also saw after his "debate" with Bernie Sanders on CNN the other night there were calls for the two to run on a bipartisan independent ticket.

    Dangerous though as third parties usually skew an election.

    Would you vote for The Rock?

    He'd suit a clear Democratic need for fresh leadership that is still well-known. That's for sure.
    Please no more people that have no experience! I don't care what party they belong to!

    Being president is much more complex than many people think. And you need to have superior intelligence.
