Excerpt:Â One thing this elongated campaign season, thus far, has revealed is that almost all of the candidates are a bunch of second stringers. What separates them from the first string is maturity. Mature candidates donâ€™t fall into the same old traps and donâ€™t make the same mistakes made before. We are seeing a lot of this right now. The prospect of facing an honesty/likability challenged Hillary, or an inexperienced Obama should have our perspective Republican candidates salivating. However they are mired in the tried-and-true minutia, responding to a media that has already chosen sides, and some of us have real doubts that any of them are truly ready for The Show.
