Presidential Candidates Described by Six Words Each

A book published by Smith Magazine carried the intriguing title, Not Quite What I was Planning: Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure. This book and similar collections of extremely short prose have been inspired by a six-word novel said to have been written by Ernest Hemingway on a dare. The novel read: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

This got me thinking of writing titles for books written by the politicians running for the presidency. Here are my titles:

Hillary Clinton: “What difference do dead Americans make?”

Donald Trump: “Brought it to a boil often.”

Sanders: “How to live rich without working.”

Christie: “Boy if I had a hammer.”

Rubio: “Always absent from Senate. No problem.”

Bush: “Never should have listened to establishment.”

Cruz: “Most successful accomplishments based on lies.”

Carson: “They asked. I thought. I campaigned.”

Kasich: “Approach problems on their own terms.”


What are yours?
