The issues facing the US in a presidential election year are simply too important for the candidates to ignore. And yet, while this suggests that they need to display policy mastery and even, now and again, genuine statesmanship, they are instead merely assuring voters that they will “keep us safe.”
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was at one point considered to be Mitt Romney's vice president if he had won back in 2012, but Romney decided he was not fit to lead. Apparently Christie did not agree and is now attempting to run for president in 2016.
Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders spoke of the Greek elections and his anti-austerity platform is really resonating with voters. Thousands of supporters have joined his speeches and have shown support to this possible future president.
