Never voted for the man, but he was entertaining to listen to!

Interesting character. Some of his initial proposals actually made sense, but then, his train went off the rails.

How he got started in business....'I bought dirty apples for a nickel, shined them up and sold them for a dime...' Kind of explains the vinyl collectibles market...

I think I voted for him the second time he ran, when he only got like 8% or something like that. The first time .... I don't know. I think that "admiral" he had as his running mate might have scared me off.

He used the memorable phrase "that giant sucking sound" about jobs leaving the U.S. as the result of the NAFTA trade agreement.
