I was originally planning to make this a poll, but it would've been way too complicated to have every single person whose ever run for president but failed to win, as well as everyone whose ever been hyped as a potential candidate but never run.  So, I just put it as a topic.  Who is the greatest president the US has never had?

(For me, it'd be Eugene V. Debs, but Robert La Follette, Henry A. Wallace, and Frank Zeidler would also be up there.)

Yes, yes, I went from supporting Rand Paul to John Kasich to briefly flirting with Trump to settling on Cruz. Laugh at my fickleness all you want.

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

Well, at least we don't have to argue about how carefully he'd have followed the Constitution. Not much needs to be said there about 29 year old US Senators.

Quote from: someone on AAD
Option 3: he flipped his vote when he realized that the female preacher with the full sleeve tattoos who he fantasizes about domming him was a Sanders supporter Tongue  Hey, whatever gets him closer to those feet I guess.
