Oligarchy

If someone is a close relative of the President or former President of the United States, they should not run for national or federal political office.  There are plenty of other people who will do a good job running the nation.  None of us is indespensible.  

That's why I have opposed Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush from the beginning.  Either of them are the road to oligarchy.  Certainly out of 300 million Americans we can find someone other than a member of the Bush or Clinton families. 

 I also think it unseemly that a former First Lady went on to be a Senator and Secretary of State. Former First Ladies have other tasks they should be doing, such as advocacy for non-partisan issues like veterans rights, literacy, and the arts; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
