Following this thread will be interesting. . .
Regarding Al Franken as a Presidential hopeful, I will "copy and paste" a comment I wrote on Facebook. LOL!
To be honest, I'm skeptical. Our country has experienced its fair share of TV celebrities turned President: Reagan and Trump. Both sure worked (or, currently works) the television camera as any good TV celebrity knows how to do. Yet, both made (or is making) a poor President for our country. (The current "celebrity-turned-President" is a dangerous disaster by most people's standards!) It would be painful to see history repeat itself a third time with Al Franken as President. I'm just skeptical, that's all. . .
To be honest, I am not aware of Al Franken's record as a Senator. I'm sure he'd make a better President than Trump.
Others to consider. . .
Bernie Sanders. But might he consider himself too old (and tired) for the job in 2020?
Hillary Clinton. She did win the popular vote this time around, by a good margin! But might she consider herself too old (and tired) too?
I'll offer more choices as time marches on. It'll be interesting to read other choices (from both sides of the political isle) of candidates for President.
