Neither Russell nor Cantwell Should be President


As men of course I prefer Russell because he was a man of principle but there are times as president you must be ruthless when called to. However, Cantwell was ruthless even when he didn't have to be which was why Hockstader grew disgusted with him saying he didn't mind a bastard but not a stupid one. In the end the country was better without either of them.

I agreed with Cantwell's wife when she said that she hates politics. It's nothing but a power grab, where the candidates will stop at nothing, to destroy their opponent, just so they can gain power.

I think Vidal would agree with you.

I think that was the point of the movie, joyceday.
