    We will never see a prisidential candidate that is the common man, struggling like the rest of us, just the elite aristocracy like mitt, Obama, gwb, I guess it has always been that way, the aristocracy run the country and the serfs work the fields. I am not giving any candidate a free ride here they all are out of touch with the common man and more in touch with their elitist peers.

      So much for being a bit unclear about the concept of being exceptional. The President of the United States must be an exceptional person. Exceptional people, do exceptional things. Like they make money. Or do other useful things. I know a auto mechanic who makes $2.4 million per year. He's not in the Grand Valley and he does work 6 or 7 days per week and 12 hours per day. He's exceptional. He's not anyone I'd vote for, but he's exceptional. And he does what he does by working hard and paying attention to what he is about. Now if you want to whine about the little family dynasties, I'll go along with you. Springing instantly to mind are the Udhals, Kennedys, Bushes, and we could probably compound a decent list. But as far as the "common man" goes, the promise of America has always been that the "common man" could by hard work and cleverness achieve uncommon success. So quit whining and achieve something for yourself, or admit that it's your fault that you are what you are.
