The primary challenge facing the American electorate is to bring stability to the U.S. economy. Idealists and pragmatics alike may want a President fluent in ecological economics able to innovate reform yet that just isn’t going to happen the next couple of decades. In fact since the end of the Reagan administration the Presidency has been unstable with poor economic or moral leadership weakening the long-term economic stability in the post-cold war era. So what is the best prospect for longer-range stability in the Presidency.
Actually it would be a Walker-Rubio administration for 16 years with Democrats pressuring environmental change 7 years from now. That is the best the country going to get, and its not that bad.
