As I looked at Steve Adams I got thinking about some of the first things that a president has to do when they are elected. They have to choose a large number of people to fill high offices including cabinet positions. One of the things I have never addressed with some of the small, idealistic, independent campaigns is that many of these idealists, no matter how serious they are, would have no chance of picking a cabinet of people they knew anything about. They might be able to pick one or two somewhat qualified people, but otherwise they would have to rely on people they knew nothing about or else people who were utterly unqualified for this kind of responsibility. In either case they would be hampered in the confirmation process which would still go through the Senate (which would undoubtedly be controlled by established politicians). Though I trust myself implicitly, I would have to admit that I could not expect to succeed at that first process which every President must undertake. That is one of the major, almost universal, problems with these independent, unknown candidates.
There is a general explanation leading to why I cannot endorse Steve Adams specifically.
