Regardless of what I think about Donald Trump, I don't see any other moguls willing to forgo high returns for a high stress low paying (relative) job such as participating/serving in the US government. My hat's off to him. I only hope he wears it.

Yeah, he's definitely running out of a selfless desire to improve the country, not because he's a megalomaniac whose absurd confidence in his ability to run a country despite having no political experience is completely representative of his approach to life.

I take it you like the traditional (dated) Charismatic/PowerBroker/Lawyer approach that has dominated US politics since WWII.

No, I just prefer candidates who are not Donald Trump. He's an utterly clueless and immature moron who would certainly be the worst president we've ever had. It would literally be a joke.

We should just Hunger Games all the Republican candidates for nomination at this point.

Dick Cheney would join the race. They'd find the other candidates, one by one, with their faces blown off by shotgun fire.
