Martin O'Malley is the only Democrat running for President who isn't either corrupt or for "free" education.

  O'Malley because he is the most hawkish.

I'm a registered Democrat who is supporting Sanders in the primaries (O'Malley is my second choice). Of the Republicans, I like Kasich (economic and social moderate; reasonable foreign policy) the best. Trump (economic and social moderate), Paul (non-interventionist), Pataki (socially liberal), Graham (economic moderate), and Gilmore (reasonable foreign policy and socially moderate) are also decent.

Trump. If we're going to f*** ourselves over, might as well do it as thoroughly as possible.

Sanders for a GOP win in 2020.

Not taking that into account, probably O'Malley

Martin O'Malley. Not socialist like Sanders, not a criminal liability like Clinton. Also much younger than the other two.

Difficult choice. Sanders is more trustworthy on foreign policy, gun rights, and immigration. However, unlike with Clinton (who would never implement any policy before first clearing it with her Wall Street benefactors), Sanders runs a non-insignificant chance of trying to turn the country into Kampuchea. Do I drink the low-dose poison that will slowly kill me over a number of years, or do I opt for Russian roulette?

I'd have to say Kasich or Bush. Christie might be OK, but I'm afraid of his temper in that role.

Kasich or Pataki. Rubio, is a tea patier, who supports Obamacare repeal, but favors immigration. Kasich or Pataki arent going anywhere, though.

As a Republican I would say whichever Democrat is the most conservative.  Jim Webb maybe but now he is out.  Joe Biden 2nd, because he is qualified and competent, but of course he is out at least for now.  Hillary is a liar and a Clinton but she is not a full blown socialist like Sanders.  Of the 3 still running, Martin O'Malley just because he may be the least awful, with Hillary 2nd.

Kasich seems the most reasonable.
