I don’t think I’m going too far out on a limb to say that this year’s choices for president qualify for the “slim pickings” category, even though at one time we had more than 20 Republicans and Democrats who’d thrown their hats into the presidential ring.
A few months ago, it seemed that somebody was always announcing his or her candidacy for the highest office in the land.
Not long ago, we still had many names left in the race — Rubio, Bush, Carson, Christie, Fiorina, Graham, Huckabee, Jindal — the list went on ad infinitum, ad nauseum.
Of course, we still have Trump, Kasich and Cruz on the Republican side, not to mention Clinton and Sanders for the Democrats.
Instead of serious, help-the-country candidates, we’re stuck with self-serving wannabes who, much of the time, act like second graders on the playground.
