A move is on to dismiss elections, debates, delegate counts, phony hats with silly mottos, placards, billboards, television commercials, speeches, rallies, and the rest of all that jazz. The US is ready for a fit President of the United States, who can skip up the steps of Air Force One, as President Obama quickly managed, spin around, wave good-bye, and get aboard.
Instead of all the usual campaign stunts, those who want to be President of the United States should have to perform a preliminary yoga test on stage, in shorts and strap tee-shirts.
After she withdrew from the presidential race, watching the Elizabeth Warren interview on Rachel Maddow's show, Ms. Warren comfortably rested her right ankle on her left knee.
