There is nobody out there like that, ironsides. The problem is that America is too divided between the right and the left. I don’t think there is a single person who will be able to satisfy a majority of Americans.
I don’t think this is the same America that existed during Reagan or even Clinton years. The political atmosphere has become much more poisonous, more divisive, more bitter in the recent years. Politics in USA these days is highly polarized.
I remember at Clinton’s State of the Union address in 1992, CNN had Rush ‘drug addict’ Limbaugh as the guest to comment on Clinton and his programs. Limbaugh ended the program by saying that he wished Clinton all the best, that he hoped Clinton succeeds (he probably didn’t mean it, but at least he said it).
Contrast that with the vitriolic tirade he unleashed against Obama on the very first day, loudly proclaiming ‘I hope he fails’.
Personally I don’t see any possibility of a politician coming up who can satisfy a majority of the population. I think your country is too divided or that to happen.
