Mary Kenny: If you want my vote for President, do it cheaper
Michael D Higgins, Fergus Finlay, Brian Crowley, Mairead McGuinness, John Bruton, David Norris, Gerry Adams, Bertie Ahern, Mary O'Rourke, Mary White, Mary Davis, Trevor Sargent (and several more) -- have I got news for you?
These are some of the esteemed candidates who have either declared their intention of standing for the presidency next year, or are considered as possibles. (So far, Mr Norris and Fergus Finlay are the front-runners.)
I have ruefully accepted that I am not likely to be a candidate myself, but I believe I have the absolute, surefire policy of how to win the presidency. Any candidate who upholds this policy would, I believe, sweep the board, wholesale, in a popular ballot.
