  •  I keep wanting to see a big city mayor (0+ / 0-)

    become President but all of the plausible candidates are people who would be terrible Presidents-Giuliani, Emmanuel, Bloomberg.

    The nominee will either be Hillary or someone way to the left of Hillary.

    •  If this is (0+ / 0-)

      the best freakin' trial balloon we have, we're already screwed. This country is not "center right" and I am sick and tired of "settling".

      We can do better. We MUST do better.

    •  Has that ever happened? (0+ / 0-)

      I don't remember a big city mayor winning the white house, but I don't know much about candidates before Roosevelt.

      Humphrey was the mayor of Minneapolis, but he ran for the white house as senator.

      •  None have been nominated (0+ / 0-)

        John Lindsay ran in the GOP primaries in 76 and of course Giulianni did in 2008.  Oh and Kucinich was mayor Cleveland once and he kind of ran for President a few times.

        I don't care if they have a title in between Mayor and President.  I just want someone with that experience in the White House.
