    Why? Has there ever been a President who didn't lie?

    I think it would be naive to think anyone in office is always being fully truthful or not talking out both sides of their mouth.

    I need to feel I can trust my POTUS.

    It's a perception.

    This ^^^^

    I have to feel I can get behind whomever is POTUS.

    Trump has always impressed me as a straight-shooter---I loved when he'd call in to Stern for his reason.

    Leadership through accountability. Sadly neither of these candidates possess it.

    How can there be a true leader when 50% of country hates them? That's the way it is no matter who wins in November. We all hate each other and our leaders.

    That's what it's coming down to.

    This current crop of Democrats only needs older white guys like you and me to hold down our jobs and to put up with the tax increases we will have to bear for being responsible Americans.

    Experience in public service. Governing people is something you are called to do. Being in a position of power does feed the ego which is why you get egomaniacs in there but it is also a shitty, tiresome, thankless job. The burden of making decisions on behalf of millions of people must be huge. The office of POTUS is like the ultimate public service job, so in summary I think any potential POTUS ought to bring a lifetime or at least a couple decades of public service to the table.
