American Presidential Politics: We have seen the clowns, but where are the magicians?

In this circus of American Presidential Politics, we have seen the clowns and the animal acts, but perhaps we need a magician.

Before the big tent folds and the lights go out, where are the men in black hats, the tricksters who will wave their wands and reveal the "real" candidates for the Republican and Democrat parties? 

I think, I hope, that both parties will come forward with viable, inspiring candidates, yet I remain nervous, waiting.. 

Sanders is inspiring to me, but old, and Trump is inspiring to Republicans (though I cannot imagine why) and he seems even more crazy/nutty than the average Republican candidate. 

So please tell me that someone is hiding beneath the white tablecloth, or inside the black magician's hat, awaiting the wave of the wand or the sprinkling of stardust that will signal the unveiling of the real candidates.

I hope this big show can amaze us with something other than a hat-full of dumb bunnies and big bamboozles.

Some people have been pushing the notion that if you are a member of the Green Party you should vote for a Democratic, but there is another side to this argument. If you are a Green, then you are no more a Democrat than a Republican is.
Green is for things that the Red and Blue oppose: While Green Party is for peaceful coexistence, Republicans and Democrats have supported wars-for-profit for all of my life. (I am 75; they will not be changing any time soon.)

Green is for live and let live, while Red and Blue are about greed and conniving, and this is no exaggeration when both of the above have always supported the overthrow of democratically elected socialist governments, replacing them with puppet governments, dictators and tyrants who practiced suppression-for-profit.

Green is for racial and economic equality as well as for recognition of tribal rights. Our 2016 Presidential candidate, Jill …
