It was former U.S. Senator Mike Gravel. He was running against Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for the democratic party's presidential nomination. But things looked bleak.

Usually CEOs are more cautious when it comes to politics, but this election is anything but usual. However, while many have questioned Trump's personality or track record, very few have addressed the larger trend that his candidacy represents: the decline of globalization.

To those of you who say Berners will have to vote for Hillary because they'll have nowhere else to go, I say you're wrong -- those Berners could go to a third party or the living room couch, to sit out the Presidential election. Walk it back from AIPAC, Hillary, and never again say Kissinger.

Indeed, the recent New York Times article highlights the fact that Hillary is sometimes more aggressive in advocating for military force than the generals she confers with. Nevertheless, or rather because of this, the generals apparently like Hillary. They really like her!
