Somebody once said that many people vote for a particular candidate for president by asking themselves, Is this somebody I can put up with appearing on the news every night?

If that's the formula, then I'm cancelling my cable service. However, considering how Hillary Clinton has ducked reporters for most of her political career, maybe that won't be a problem if she's elected.

But there are other, more important things to consider when electing a president. So if you still can't decide between Clinton or Trump, here are some questions to ask yourself before going into the voting booth.

1. Which candidate is going to be the best friend Wall Street ever had?

2. Which candidate knows a member of a minority who isn't a servant, aide or useful political ally?

3. Which candidate is unable to give a straight answer to save their life?

4. Which candidate's campaign can be described as a cult of personality?

5. Which candidate is said to have been plotting their campaign for at least two decades?

6. Which candidate is going to renege on the promises that got them nominated?

7. Which candidate is wound tighter than a rattlesnake around a baby gopher?

8. Which candidate is known to have a hair-trigger temper?

9. Which candidate demands absolute obedience from underlings at the risk of suffering his or her unending wrath?

10. Which candidate gets into trouble when going off-script?

11. Which candidate makes no bones of being contemptuous of the press?

12. Which candidate is going to use the power of the presidency to go after their opponents?

13. Which candidate is distrusted by an overwhelming majority of the electorate?

14. Which candidate strikes fear in the heart of their party?

15. Which candidate, when you get right down to it, is a cynical, power-mad plutocrat willing to do whatever it takes to get their own way?

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Now you know the differences between the presumptive Democrat and Republican presidential candidates. Vote wisely. 

Remember: you have a choice.         

Oh yeah.
