Picking the right President is a crap shoot. Odds are you don’t truly understand the issues, really know the candidates, or even have a clue as to what the President’s actually does.
People do better judging things within their intellectual comfort-zone. And in the average American’s intellectual comfort-zone is Baseball.
Hillary Clinton has stated that one of her childhood goals was to become a baseball player. She did no sports in high school, however, choosing Drama and to Debate Club for the Young Republicans. So that baseball dream died early.
In typical flip-flop fashion she has/is a some time or other been both a Cubs and a Yankees fan. Depending on the donations I guess?
”Being a Cubs fan prepares you for life, and for Washington.”
I assume that she is referring to the disappointment of playing with losers!?
Editors take: “Girl can’t throw. Not President material.”
Bernie didn’t play much baseball, preferring basketball like a “fake” American.
Baseball did, in part, shape his political beliefs. In 1957 when the Dodgers left Brooklyn it taught young Bernie the realities of “owner-greed” over community loyalty.
“Of course! I thought the Dodgers belonged to Brooklyn”
To think if not for owner-greed I wouldn’t become nauseous at the sight of Dodgers’ blue?!
Another Baseball moment was at the 2005 Congressional Steroid in Baseball hearings where Bernie accused Congress of worrying too much about Professional Baseball and not enough about Child-Poverty. How un-American!
Editors take: “Great Jewish Sports Legends? Not Presidential material!”
There’s only one reliable source for news on the Donald. And that’s the Donald:
“I was captain of the baseball team. I was supposed to be a professional baseball player. Fortunately, I decided to go into real estate instead. I played first base and I also played catcher. I was a good hitter. I just had a good time.”
So there you have it folks. You just can’t argue with that!
Editors take: “President by baseball and humility is the Donald!”
