Nope, and it seems like the choices are between hospital food and airplane food.
I want a candidate (the party affiliation is less and less important) who:
1. Insists on balanced budgets and cuts in spending, and renounces the supply-side theology that tax cuts pay for themselves
2. Gets China, and I mean really gets China, and plans on setting the US on a path of freeing us from that "entangling alliance" - "free trade" has simply translated into "free weapons" for the Chinese elite
3. Insists on real entitlement reform (i.e., raising of age limits on SS, possibly even means-testing)
4. Insists on busting up the big banks so that "too big too fail" becomes moot, as nothing will be "too big"
5. Insists on bona fide institutional reform - talks about term limits, more transparency in government, neutral redistricting rules, earmark bans, waiting periods on laws (public viewing before enactment, etc.),
6. Gets serious about reforming our agricultural policy (i.e., phase-out subsidies, but promote domestic agrilcultural producton)
7. Get serious about diversifying our energy portfolio (i.e., expanding domestic production of both fossil fuels and alternatives)
8. Wants to protect the value of the dollar so that saving - and thus the middle class - isn't penalized
