Interesting. Thanks for answering. I asked because of your comment about "progressives."I'm not quite sure how to answer. I admired Kasich's response to covid, opposition to trump and pursuit of balanced budgets. He supported free trade, but I think he thought it should be reciprocal. And enforced by some agreed upon standards of what was not allowed. I liked Jack Kemp too, but maybe that was football. LOL I admired McCain. I don't have to agree all the time. I don't think any of those guys cared cared or gave much thought (maybe wrongly) to what other people looked like or who they loved. The last president I was enthusiastic about was HW, and I suspect that won't change.
If I could I'd phase out all public affirmative action and base preference more on geographics and econ hardship.
Many years ago when I lost faith with govt and churches over vietnam, I thought MLKjr might have something in common ground among working people of all stripes. I still think that. And I like Warnock. But I'm big on work and not on govt aid. Educ, Healthcare really don't have free market solutions imo. But yah gotta have a job, and yah gotta pay the rent. I don't think our current public assistance really stresses that, but damned if I've seen anything better than what we've got.
Who and what are they and what do you think of them?
