A presidential campaign puts the country through a rugged exam. It tests the candidates against each other, this year Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton. But that's not all. It tests the parties too, and most of all it tests you and me.
Buckle up, America. We’ll soon have to choose between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump as chief executive of our government and leader of the free world. A third choice is less likely than a comet hitting you. What to do?
Who do you like for President? Many Americans this year seem inclined to answer that question with another: What’s today? The polls are volatile. We’ve already seen surprises, and we’ll see more. This was going to be a column endorsing Romney. The straight-arrow entrepreneur is my guy. If Mitt quits, I’m for gruff Fred Thompson. I was also going to say that McCain and Huckabee, big-government egotists, are my least favorite—though preferable to any Democrat.
