Mitt Out Will Hillary A Race Aksi Shun?

One tried and failed Red candidate down; time for one more Blue to go,
A Blue fixture on the Washington scene still expects to run the White House show
Mitt Romney who many of us now want a Mulligan  instead of the vote in 2012 we cast
Has decided though his ideas were right, his time to run for President is now past.
Hillary in the modern day equivalent of the divine right of kings
Has not yet joined Mitt and is waiting to see what coronation frenzy will bring
Tired ideas, tired face, ignoring the gender more like an Obama clone
And in foreign policy the mistakes she has to own
"What difference does it make that corporations don’t create jobs"
Or that with her book advances and speaking fees income equality for Blues she robs
On the Red side there is the matter of Jeb Bush trying to become the last member of the Bush Over the Line Team
Though a good man and not his brother’s keeper against the angst of his brother’s wars he will be like a salmon swimming upstream,
New faces on both sides needed without the baggage of the past
Fresh ideas to prevent or at least delay this country’s last gasps
No matter how much a  candidate in the general wants to win the top political prize
A devotion to resurrect the lost art of no more winner take all but rather the art of political compromise
