Rating Trump & Clinton on Character
When I step into the voting booth in a little under a month, I am going to vote for the person with the highest character. I want to know that my candidate is honest, responsible, respectful, loyal, responsible and has integrity. When it comes to the presidential race, however, I just don’t know who that person is.
Each candidate seems to be battling to see who can reach the bottom of the barrel first. It’s one scandal after another. It’s mud-slinging at its best. The election is better than a soap opera… more entertaining than reality… and more exciting than a college football game in third overtime.
The last debate had zero to do with the candidate’s vision for America and policy. Virtually nothing was discussed about the candidates stances on various issues. Why? Sex scandals trump (no pun intended) policy and lies upon lies to the FBI peak our interest.
So, instead of me laying out the litany of low points for each candidate, I leave it up to you, the students to inform me. Please help me.
