To the editor:
The entire list of Democratic candidates for president is discouraging, if not outright depressing. Joe Biden will always be Mr. Touchy-Feely. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren remind me of two ivory tower college professors way overdue for retirement. Pete Buttigieg is actually running for governor of Indiana. Amy Klobuchar needs to stay in the Senate since the legislative branch was her choice for representing Minnesota.
As for the rest of the candidates in the private sector, they need to run for city council first and then proceed from there.
On the other hand, California recently lost the best four-term governor and Oakland the best two-term mayor in their entire history. I am referring, of course, to Jerry Brown. He is a man of utmost integrity with an honest zeal to promote excellent quality of life for all Americans, not just those aligned with the Democratic party.
And just as with former President [Barack] Obama, he can add a vice-presidential candidate who specialized in foreign affairs.
Jerry, it’s time to throw your hat into the ring, and declare your candidacy for president of the United States. The world and the country desperately need you to put an end to Trumpism and lead us back to a time of peace and prosperity.
