What a great country! Every four years the political election machinery gets itself cranked up like a wheezing carnival calliope and those who aspire to lead the most powerful nation on earth throw their proverbial hats in the ring and run for president of the Unites States. It’s a show unlike any other in the world and this year the process has yielded an especially rich field of candidates, some who are familiar, some not so much and some who coming out of their corners so loudly as the bell sounds as to capture all the headlines, making for great campaign news, great television and great Twitter wars.
