I have been struggling with who I want to be the next president after the divider-in-chief’s final departure. I think I have picked one who might be able to undo at least some of the damage recently done to our country. That is what this post is all about.

As my first candidate to look at in my “The Next President” series I want to focus on a local guy. Who would have ever thought that the mayor of a small Indiana town could get such attention? All you have to do is google “Mayor Pete” and he comes up.

How could a 37 year-old from perhaps the most conservative State north of the Mason-Dixon line even show up on the radar? He isn’t rich by any means and moreover he has proudly proclaimed that he is a gay person with a husband! I mean he graduated from high school after the millennium! Despite all of this he is a front runner in the second pack for president.
