Shared Clinton Trump Presidency

Clinton m w f Trump t th sat They alternate Sundays.
  (-5)(-5)
(-5)
  [vote for,
against]

So what would you think of a shared Presidency between Clinton and Trump?

Clinton works Monday Wednesday and Friday. Trump plays Tuesday Thursday and Saturday. They alternate Sundays.

Yeah. Ewwwwhhh!

Maybe they would cancel each other out. ? !

       You sew the head of one onto the other and I'll vote for it.

       it's funny how the quality of candidates demonstrably worsened since the smoked filled rooms, and yet everyone thinks the problem is campaign finance.

       Ah, [theircompetitor], I knew I would find you here.   

       The quality has changed ? I thought that the lowest common denominator rule still prevailed.

       One could make the argument that honest primaries provide the lowest common denominator twice.   

       I would suggest, however, that mass media has a lot more to do with the problem than the absence of smoke filled rooms. At this point, sound bites and popularity contests matter a lot more than a written platform, and the cost of presenting a major campaign through advertising means that individuals start raising money for their next campaign as soon as they finish the first. Combined with instant feedback in the form of polls and e-mail counts means that the more extreme but vocal groups on both sides tend to hold a disproportionate share of the candidates/politicians attention.

       I'm moving in with po if Trump even gets one day in office as President here. HElllooo London, Goodbye idiotic America, if that be the case.

       Ah, yes, the biggest problem with democracy is that other people get a vote
theircompetitor, Aug 19 2015
  

       Forget London. I'm going to either Sydney or the Canary Islands, where the weather doesn't suck.

       Trump is the worst candidate, except for all the others.   

       As [MechE] alludes, the primaries have effectively become a big reality show, so it should come as no surprise that Trump is leading. (I think Perry is going to get voted off next episode.)

       No, the biggest problem is that people who are wrong get a vote. The ones that agree with you are fine.

       Pop quiz -- if you take all the money out of politics (as if), would celebrity play a smaller, or bigger role in getting elected?   

       However bizarrely this election is going, I'm predicting a surge in shamelessly self-centered "name-id" candidates. A Congress full of rappers is on the way -- think about how much more entertaining C-Span is going to get.

       I think 2020 is high time for my 'Jon Stewart for President' write-in campaign.   

       It would be fun to see Trump and Putin in a room together. Perhaps one with stretching racks and chainstocks...

       I think there should be a basic test, and then perhaps divide up the vote by issue. If you can pass 'x' questions about current immigration law, then you can vote on immigration policy.
