There has been a whole lot of speculation about this election's Democratic candidates. Why is one of them best equipped for the Oval Office? Why wouldn't they be?

There are many reasons, but Sanders is well equipped based on the fact that he doesn't flip flop like Hillary. Hillary's changed her stances on so many things, I'm starting to think she's in politics simply for personal gain, not to actually change anything.

The Democratic party has two strong, each with some negatives. All the fun in this election is coming from the complete disarray in the GOP.

When the GOP has sorted through its pack of clowns, it's a fair bet that we will have another Democratic president.

Strong in the sense....

One has supporters who want real change and address real issues

The other flip flops issues, and appeals to the establishment for political gain.

Failure to flip flop is a known disqualification for major political office.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Sanders is too old. I want to sit him down gently in a garden somewhere and make sure he's got a blanket and a cup of tea. Maybe a piece of cake. I think he'd like plain cake.

Yea, to old. Reagan was suffering dementia by his second term.

Don't get me wrong, I think society too readily removes people from the workforce. I know 80 year olds who still put in a full work week (or more)! However, the Presidency is a very demanding job, and unless you have excellent vigour for your age. Hillary doesn't seem to have that kind of vigour.

Except for when you campaign on doing things that you failed to do in the past. You can't trust Hillary when she's going around changing her views on things *after* she gets huge sums of money from various corporations.

Bernie is by far better because he
-He has consistency
-He isn't bought and paid for
-He tells the truth
-He has better policies than Hillary

Is he really too old? He is in great health, and he is still going strong
