48. Dollahs dollahs dollahs!! Name recognition!! Future electability!!!

 

There's no disincentive anywhere in the electoral system to keep marginally-viable candidates from strapping on that "Vote for ME!" hat and raising big ol' bucks that they can then eventually transfer to another campaign for another office.

And there's terrific INCENTIVE from the expanding-like-fetid-yeast Campaign Management Industry, which is adding high-paying jobs for talented grifters, marketers, socially-awkward geeks, and spokesweasel whores at a phenomenal rate.

Just ask them!! They'll tell you all about what a great thing it would be if YOU ran!! And how much they could help you! And how it would totally be a great thing for your future career because you'd be "former Presidential Candidate >NOW WITH NAME RECOGNITION<!!

And even if you don't win, all that lovely money they help you raise (assuming you get to keep any of it) will be available for your NEXT campaign!

It's a no-lose proposition!!

Except for voters, of course.

wearily,
Bright
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
