    William Jennings Bryan ran on an important economic issue. that is that money=gold was hurting the economy and making farmers poor. He lost the elections but his ideas won with the creation of the fed in 1913. If someone today had a platform that addresses the problems of the growing income inequality in the US with a realistic solution I would vote for him whether or not he was a great public speaker.

    Absolutely not. His whole mentality was that if we had to choose between religion or education, then religion would take priority. To me, that signifies somebody who goes against the very beliefs he would be expected to uphold as helmsman of this country. Progress and plurality of perspectives does not entail nor endorse theocratic servitude.

    Someone like him just ran and is still in the Republican race. His name is Mike Huckabee.
