Well, just keep this fact in mind. This reply is meant to be apolitical, and hopefully thoughtful.
Before 2008, how many of us REALLY knew anything about Barack Obana. Before 2000, how many of us knew much about George W. Bush? 1992 - Bill Clinton. (Skip Bush I and Reagan) 1976 - Jimmy Carter?
My point: Lately, many of our presidents seem to have come out of nowhere to somehow win the White House. Forget the early ‘favorites.’ Look for a dark horse.
Not knowing how to spell his name only accentuates your point.
