Here's what I've decided is important. In order:

1. Qualifications
2. Political skills
3. People skills
4. Alignment with my policy views
5. Competent campaign and messaging
6. Can beat Trump

I would have included "trustworthy," but we're talking about politicians (LOL). I realize #6 is #1 for a lot of people. But #1 through #5 accomplish #6. Assuming America has any residual rational thinking and/or patriotic values left. Oh, wait.
