At first glance, I thought the headline on the front page (Jan. 20) of The Sun was a sports headline: "scores win," "second ... distant third."

Then I looked at the three photos of the candidates, with clinched fists raised.

I found that a rather chilling portrait of people hoping to become the leader of our nation in a time that so desperately needs statesmanship, empathy and - dare I say - "vision"?

Without captions, I could have taken these for pictures of winning coaches.

Politics is not a game. I do not want my candidate thinking in terms of winners and losers, but planning for the welfare of the entire planet.
