Sums Up the Presidential Campaign Right Now

I didn't write the following, but I agree with every word of the author's sentiment at the end:

Let's see, we have two candidates worth over $100 million each, through marriage or associations, and one has a private jet. They are the salt of the earth, share and know the daily struggles of the hardworking men and women, and both are at a disadvantage: one being a woman and the other his age.

Then we have another candidate, worth approximately $3.4 million, self-made millionaire (in recent years), through his own works (writing books), paid his own way through school; he is the elitist, he does not share or know the struggles of the hardworking men and women, and to top it off, his advantage (according to GF): he's black.

Rod Serling and his writers with their wild imagination never conceived of such a show.

It really is a sad commentary on the state of the Presidential election (and American politics as a whole) right now.
