It’s going to be the most interesting run up to an election in our time, maybe even ever. You have Trump who could be in jail before the election (although i doubt it), who really is the only republican with a chance of winning. Then there is Sleepy Joe, the only Democrat candidate really, but the man is really too old for the job. Reading back over my post it’s really all about Trump, he makes it entertaining.
It really does feel like the last huzza for this generation of politicians. Even the most experienced candidates, like Nikki Haley & Chris Christie, feel out of touch with the social temperature over in the states. The sixth party system is fading, but there’s no clear seventh system rearing up. The pillars and points on which elections are fought have changed so much in the last decade!
The further the Reps fall to the right, the more boring the Dems have had to become. Nothing is a done deal yet, who knows what could happen with the RNC between now and next July, but what is certain is the next election in 2028 will be fought between more of the ‘next generation’. I’ve a feeling that may include a third-party that takes voted away from Reps, whether it be libertarian or MAGA. So I’d say that’s the one to watch, and for now just hope this period of transition is as stable as it can be!
Happy to discuss politics any day of the week! I keep up as one of my best friends (and his family) are entrenched Utah-Republicans and borderline MAGA…
Oh, and Vivek Ramaswamy terrifies me more than any Trump administration could.
I mean people do trip, so this isn’t something to be too concerned about. Personally even physical issues shouldn’t be a barrier to politics, but mentally and being able to communicate (regardless of the message) is fundamental.
Remember the US has had a president in a wheelchair. Being able to walk up steps isn’t the issue. The Democrats really need someone possibly able to connect with the country a little better than Biden. At the moment they are relying on anti-Trump sentiment rather than pro-Democrat values from what I’ve seen.
