It may seem a bit early to talk about candidates for the 2016 presidential election but, as one political science expert recently quipped, “most of us are already talking about 2020 as well!” For 2016, a large and growing list of candidates is crowding the GOP field, while Hillary Clinton appears to be standing alone- at least early on- in the Democrats’ corner. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham even threw his hat into the ring of politicians forming committees and raising funds, and of course, the list of candidates will likely change in the coming months. Dr. Michael Bitzer guest hosts a panel of political pundits to help us handicap the race for the White House in 2016.
