Former Hewlett-Packard arch Carly Fiorina and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are both technological illiterates. Florida senator Marco Rubio is too uninformed to win a presidency. And Texas senator Ted Cruz is disturbingly suggestive of red-baiting 1950s manipulator Joe McCarthy.

Cuban has not shied divided from voicing his opinions about a 2016 presidential choosing on his blog and on Twitter. But a scarcely 30-minute radio talk supposing a forum where he could give a some-more extensive pattern of his views, positioning himself as a mercantile regressive and a amicable liberal. Here are 8 takeaways:
1. Vice President Cuban?
Cuban laid to rest a probability that he competence enter a presidential debate in 2016. However, he left open either he competence run in a future. “I would never order it out… a genuine doubt is, can a businessperson and businessman do some-more to assistance a nation than a president?” he asked. However, in another talk on Tuesday, on a Dallas sports radio program, Cuban reportedly pronounced he’d cruise using as clamp boss on a sheet with associate billionaire Donald Trump. “As prolonged as [Trump] pronounced he'[d] listen to me in all we said, we’d be OK,” Cuban said.
2. Donald Trump isn’t self-aware
Cuban tends to consider that Trump has a many potential, yet he’ll need to change his tone. “He’s been a exhale of uninformed atmosphere from a viewpoint that he speaks his mind,” Cuban said. Trump’s biggest problem, according to Cuban, is that he isn’t really self-aware. He has a useful side that will make him tinge down some of his some-more impassioned rhetoric, however.
3. Bernie Sanders is many engaging candidate
Of all a candidates, Cuban says he would many like to lay down with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, even yet he objects to Sanders’s position as a approved revolutionary and devise to levy a special taxation on billionaires. “I’m like, yo dude, come on, we … got here by tough work!” Cuban said.
4. Bloomberg should enter a race
Former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and Vice President Joe Biden would be acquire additions to a race, Cuban said. “We know his policies, from his time as mayor of New York,” he pronounced of Bloomberg. “We know where he stands on guns. We know where he stands on other issues. He’s very, really on-going in a lot of respects on amicable issues and he’s rather regressive on mercantile issues.” As for Biden, Cuban pronounced he’d be a improved gamble than Clinton, since he has a improved possibility of distinguished a center belligerent with Republicans in Congress.
5. Clinton is too polarizing
Cuban pronounced Clinton is too polarizing to win a presidency. “I consider Hillary is smart, yet she’s only dissapoint so many people on a other side, that it’s going to be very, really difficult.” Also, a imbroglio over her doing of personal email while she worked in a State Department shows she knows really small about technology, he said.
6. Ted Cruz is a disaster
As he has in new weeks, Cuban saved many of his vitriol for Cruz. “He is Joe McCarthy reincarnate,” Cuban said. “He … labels a others, we know, and denigrates people who don’t, who aren’t pristine in how they are. …He’s not a form of chairman who will accomplish anything. He’s only obstructionist.”
7. Choose a wild-card probity for Supreme Court
Regarding a rarely polarized atmosphere around anticipating a inheritor to Scalia, Cuban pronounced he’d select someone who’s independent-minded. “I would demeanour to find a smartest, many big person, who is means to say, we know what, where there’s a magnanimous interpretation that’s improved matched for what’s going on, fine,” Cuban said. “If there is a regressive interpretation that’s improved suited, since that fits a law better, fine.”
8. It’s a economy, stupid
Finally, Cuban pronounced a outcome of a choosing eventually will be all about a economy: “There’s so most doubt with markets, there’s so most doubt with general finance, that people could start feeling a effects privately and that could change what they’re focused on,” he said.
