Sir Wearer of Hats

American politics seems to have a more cartoonish quality than in most countries.

Australia is being run by the b****** offspring of Cobra Commander and Skeletor.

We're all led by donkeys frankly.

As a guarantor Hillary's talking points are boosted. It's pretty simple really. Just watch all his interviews so far since entering as a socalled republican candidate. He's called her "tough to beat" and "a very smart woman". In return, Clinton has already lashed out at him as "being dangerous". The Presidential Reality Show is all business. It's also an illusion of choice.... a kick in the teeth to the individual liberty of a real true and just-democratic process.

Donald Trump is for Donald Trump Inc. He's going to sit in the White House and beckon a new golden age for commercial real estate in New York etc. What's worse, he's no less honest than a career politician either.

R's must be scurrying around trying to figure out how to keep this guy out of the debates.

he said he wants Oprah Winfrey as his Vice President

http://www.people.com/article/donald-trump-oprah-running-mate-late-night-hosts

hmmm, I wonder who he'd want for his Secretary Of State?

BEST - Ron

Without reading that, one of the first things I heard trump talk about was that. He does not want her as VP, not at all. He is friends with her and he made the remark in jest

Well sir I think its pretty obvious a two party system from which candidates ensue who succeed or fail essentially by virtue of corporate 'donations', is just about one of the most shallow democracy variants around.

I really dont think there is any Western nation where unnatural persons have such an explicit control over national policy then is the case with 'The Land of the Free'. I also cannot think of any nation in the Western hemisphere where freedom is deconstructed at any comparable rate. Oh sure, the rest follows suit, thesame general trends are in effect.. but not in thesame order of magnitude.

He's "running" because he's an egomaniac. There's no way he's going to complete any sort of run, despite the fact he filed with the FEC. By actually running, and not just "running," he'll eventually have to file all sorts of financial disclosures, put all his investments into a blind trust to avoid any sort of overt favoritism, and actually, you know, run for office.

What he's doing in actuality is simply keeping his name on everyone's lips. He has absolutely no intention of going through with it. He's showboating, nothing more.

Not that he's got more than a statistically insignificant chance of winning anyway, regardless of how he's polling right now.

I'll take Leo's answer and up it a bit. Trump _IS_ an egomaniac, but he also sees that the Republican field is VERY weak. Considering the other passengers in the clown car, he actually stands a chance of getting the Republican nomination... which is scary as hell. If he DOES get nominated, the Dem candidate has it sewn up - they could nominate a small soap dish and it would win.

The only chance is a 3rd party candidate this time - and it looks like Sanders may actually do well.

I've been wondering how all of his private ventures would be handled if he were president.

They'd be handled as vaguely as possible.

Here's a very interesting read about presidential candidates financial disclosures. It was originally posted in May of this year, but the details on the candidates in the story aren't important. I link it because of the more broad information about what candidates have to disclose, what they don't have to disclose, and what is generally hidden. It turns out that as much as possible is hidden.

Disclosure is a different topic though. Doesn't he own the Ms. Universe contest for example? That's not an operation likely to be suspended for 4 years. I assume a president cannot run businesses while in office. I don't know though. Someday a president might come in owning a sports team. Just wondering if there are laws or precedent for that.

In the case of the Miss Universe pageant, or whatever pageant Trump owns, yeah, he'd either have to get rid of it entirely, or defer control to someone else. Most often, they use a blind trust for investments. That way, the candidate avoids any conflict of interest. They still own stocks, bonds, whatever, but the candidate has no control over what is bought and sold.

Much superior to the current line-up. Aside from Winfrey.
