Assess presidential fitness

I am a Republican, and Donald Trump has motivated me to think about change. But it’s probably not the type that he’s advocating. I propose a change to the nominating process for presidential candidates. Winning the primary vote should only be a part of it.

Candidates should be evaluated by psychiatrists and ethicists who can assess candidates’ mental stability, ability to interact with opponents in a rational manner and character. We Republicans wouldn’t be suffering the distress that we’re suffering now.
