    I already told you. @jkcerda's grandmother's recipes.

    And I'm being rather serious. In today's political climate, it seems that the only thing that people can really agree on, is food.

    I doubt Bill wants the job, well I doubt Trump wants it either. Id still vote for Bill in this hypothetical.

    Now Gates is also not the con man that Trump is so in that regard Trump would probably win as he would play dirty and as you can tell people don't want a smart person like Bill Gates winning.

    I'm not an American citizen, but if I was, there's a good chance my vote would go for Bill Gates, *if* it were to come down to those two.

    To be reasonable, the poll needs a "None of the above" choice, or at least an "Unsure".

    Personally, I'd have to see what happens between now and 2020. Otherwise the 2 options are both like buying a pig in a poke.

    Hmm, maybe "Pig in a poke" should be one of the poll choices.

    Not really. Plenty of news coming out today. You know...for people who have an open mind and understand that the Trump admin might have done something wrong.

    So it doesn't apply to you. :D

    No, it's just a lot of the juicy Russian stuff today is behind paywalls and we get mocked if we cite them even though there are ways to get around them. So I'll bite. Here are two from the WSJ, not to derail the thread.

    https://www.wsj.com/articles/u-s-fines-exxon-2-million-over-russia-sanctions-breaches-1500570876

    The U.S. Treasury Department on Thursday imposed a $2 million fine on Exxon Mobil Corp. for what it called a “reckless disregard” of U.S. sanctions on Russia while Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was the oil giant’s chief executive, a finding the company immediately said it would challenge.​


    https://www.wsj.com/articles/specia...-money-laundering-by-paul-manafort-1500587532

    Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating possible money laundering by Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s former campaign manager,as part of his criminal investigation into what U.S. intelligence agencies say was a Kremlin-backed campaign to meddle in the 2016 presidential election, according to a person familiar with the matter.

    And so back to the thread topic: I voted for Gates. So far we have all voted for Gates lol. I think we should phone him up and tell him to put on a cape and fly east asap.

    EDIT: some of us have... abstained!

    He could be dead by 2020. Or a victim of Alzheimer's. Or I could.

    Trump seems to be closer to that than Gates is. Health wise I think Gates is healthier.

    I'd say Trump would be out of his mind to run again... hmmm. Hopefully he peters out, he has a meltdown, and/or his approval rating kills his chances, in other words sanity prevails.

    Only reason Trump will run again, is if things are terrible 3 years from now and he needs to save face. I doubt he would want to bow out after his first term without something to show for.
