You guys worship money and rich guys a little to much...I knew a billionaire and he was common...and wise...but he was an exception...Those with great wealth are also great predators --once they are in office they continue to hunt and devour...There is no rule within this so-called elite that states they do not consume their own...which is you..

What I meant by common was ---an honest person with a balanced mind and sound judgement...so SHOREBABY wants an "uncommon" man....you miss the point...all of your leaders so far in the last twenty years were all too common..you need someone with some real class...not the kind money buys..

I concur.
