How about "Sanders has these ideas, I agree or disagree with him" instead of ranking him on some arbitrary scale?

How about that every every candidate?

I don't mind if the president plays golf. I would agree that I wouldn't want the president to be a Golfer. Anyone who treats the game as a source of status to be taken more seriously than cross-country marbles shouldn't be anywhere near power.

Because if Presidents were elected on that Trump or George H. W Bush would never have been elected. I've been asking people for decades why they voted for someone and the vast majority answer with the superfluous or intangible absurdities. Most people go with their guts not their minds. There is a reason there are churches all across the world.

Case in point: Obama is a thin-skinned narcissist

The spin: oh Trump is a thin skinned narcissist, I don't deny that. But so is Obama, but he's a more shrewd operator and his narcissism is more subtle, hence why I had to point it out so you guys know that they aren't much different in that department.
