      Well, I would save that until after the next presidential election, assuming Trump will contest it.

    Would be interesting to see what Hillary would score. Tribal hatreds are dominant.

    • Likely we will never know, I don’t expect she will ever be president.

      There’s reasonable results for Obama. Of course ethics isn’t a measure of effectiveness.

    POTUS: “Ethics? What is that …?” (Latest Aide whispers in his ear)

    POTUS: “Ethics ……… You’re fired! (Then, to latest Aide) … You too!”

    but does it matter. He bonked Stormy?

    Many pundits still think he can win again.

    What’s new: The Peterson phenomenon (for one thing).

      The Peterson phenomenon imo is already Petering out. He’s the Eric Von Daaniken of pop philosophy. Gone the full ego trip now & probably already past his use by date. A few sad bastards might pick up something useful from his book telling young men to grow up and take some personal responsibility for not screwing up their own lives waiting for someone to give them one, and his point about free speech meaning you can say things some woolly woofter wankers don’t like is a good one, but the rest of what he blathers on about these days is mostly psychobabble.

    Why people overlook The Donald’s many fault and give him a vote

      ”They despise his sense of aesthetics. They can’t stomach someone like him in the highest office.”

      Spot on. Do some on this blog and other blogs hold similar views even thought they aren’t elite academics? But of course. Some are dumb struck. Words fail them. Eg:
