The 2016 presidential elections aren’t for another year and a half, but, whether we’re ready for it or not, the season has started. Possible candidates are popping up everywhere. Some of them have already declared, the most prominent of which are Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and Hillary Clinton. Others, including Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Bernie Sanders, Jim Webb, Chris Christie, etc., may or may not declare their candidacies in the coming months, which will be eventful nevertheless.
Today we’re here to discuss the individuals who could take office as President of the United States in 2017. We’ll also be reviewing President Obama’s two terms, what has changed since 2008, what our priorities as a country should be in 2016, and which candidates could best handle those priorities.
