OBAMA: President shouldn’t run again

Suggestion for Barack Obama: If nominated for a second term, he should do the right thing and decline the nomination.

His divisive polices, views and inexperience have brought dysfunction to America, not the leadership that is so desperately needed. He is a nice person, but Hillary Clinton would be a much better candidate for Democrats.

I never thought those words would cross my lips. I am an independent voter. America needs a president who represents Americans, not a politician representing one party.
