Unpromising Times: Primary elections and secondary candidates...

According to Thomas Sowell "...there is nobody among either the Democrats or the Republicans who is going to cause a runaway stampede like that which toppled all the Republican front-runners in 1940, when the convention delegates began loudly chanting “We want Wilkie!”

It is a struggle to keep awake during most of the so-called “debates” among the small army of candidates in both parties. At least the primaries will put an end to those awful spectacles. It is much too early to try to guess who is going to win either party’s nomination. The most we can have at this point are some general impressions.

None of the candidates looks truly inspiring at this point. I wouldn’t buy a used car from most of them, nor a brand new car from some of them..."
