While America does need a change, that was the whole theme in 2008 and it has changed a lot (but for the worse).

Clinton 92-2000 - Likeable but he had sex scandals.. not one,...there were many
Bush 2000-08 - Likeable b/c he made-up words & seemed genuine. He was unlucky with 9/11 attack and Clinton's past agreement with wall street institutions to package real estate loans which blew up in 2005.
Obama - A messiah like speaker advocating change and back to greatness. It's become worse. Blacks and hispanics have fared much worse under his presidency Whites have lots regualr jobs. He has been a reactionary President for the most part except for being proactive for Hollywood and LGBT.

So, my options are this time around:

Hillary - more of Obama's same policy. A similar liar but more of a bully
Sanders - Presidents do live into their 80s and early 90s but we'll be taxed to death even more and socialism has never really worked.
Trump - talk, talk,talk, no substance, Sounds worse than George W and uses lots of profanity during speeches.
Kasich - A quasi-Democrat in disguise IDK but he did turn around Ohio.
Cruz - too conservative? if Obama can't work with parties, then how will Cruz?
Rubio - changes his stance on issues.
Bush - he's done well for Florida. But really, another one.

I've got nothing so far. Unless I had my arms twisted by Hillary's goons andhad to pick, I'd choose Rubio unless something else negative comes up about him.
