Listening to this morning’s Ezra Klein podcast does not inspire confidence for this election year. I’m already trying to figure out how far south I need to travel for the weather to be warm enough for an early November week long bike ride off grid. You know why every rational person is hoping for Nikki Haley to be the Republican presidential candidate? Because if she wins the morning after feeling will be disappointment instead of despair. That’s it. She’s somebody that we can live with for four years as president. I do not want to have to deal with a political climate that is all out war until 2028. There are just too many global problems that need solving for us to lose more time over culture wars.
