    I'd like to find candidates that are reluctant to foreign conflicts and budget/debt conscious. That may be the two top priorities I look to in presidential elections.

    I didn't have too strict of an order other than highest office and whether it was current or former.

    Any of the big wigs will get crushed. They are too flawed.

    The no names have a shot though.

    Agreed, but I think Biden probably has it locked down. At that point, I don't know what's worse between him and Trump. I think Biden can be a competent president for four years, but he'll just keep up with the same neoliberal fuckery we're used to and then get knocked off by Trump 2.0 in 2024.

    There's no escape from this utter hellscape I'm afraid.

    I would like to see Oprah Winfrey and David Letterman debate each other in the primaries.
