Let me tell you about a hypothetical election between two candidates (A and B), who both happen to be very real. See if you can decide who would do the best job of the two of them.
A career Republican, Ron Paul decided to run for president on the Libertarian Party ticket in 1988. Although Ron Paul lost the GOP nomination to John McCain 20 years later in 2008, the OB/GYN and Congressman won his House re-election race in Texas's 14th District.
A similarly unpleasant choice now looms before the American electorate--between Donald Trump, the xenophobic, nationalist demagogue, on one side, and Hillary Rodham Clinton, the unrepentant militarist, Wall Street shill, and unindicted emailer, on the other.

Grayson worries about a situation where a candidate could still be the party's nominee even if they received 59 percent of the popular vote due to the superdelegate situation.
Hillary Rodham Clinton has to contend with the fact that half the Democrat electorate in Iowa did not buy her message or find her appealing. That this came after an anti-Sanders media barrage in the eve of the caucus makes his performance even more impressive.
The greatest issue plaguing our society today is that of income inequality. Yet astonishingly, the current presidential candidates have failed to propose any adequate ideas for solving it.
