100-word rant: the almost-perfect candidate

Sophomore talks about his ideal president.

I wouldn’t personally know how presidential-hopeful Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party feels with no major news site predicting a win for him, but judging from his hourly Facebook posts that urge his 1.7 million page-likers to write his name on their ballots, the former New Mexico governor still thinks he has a chance at winning the presidency.

He may not know what Aleppo is, and he doesn’t have a favorite foreign leader (or at least he still can’t think of one), but his determination to win this election is an admirable quality that all presidential candidates (looking at you Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio) should have.
