Centrists needed

The two major parties are gearing up for another “us against them” presidential election. Our government is not functioning in a positive and cooperative manner and the only people who will be happy with the results of the 2016 presidential election will be either the far left or the far right. The other 90 percent will be dissatisfied and more gridlock and government by confrontation and conflict will occur.

Can anyone out there suggest some centrists as potential presidential candidates whether Democrat, Republican, Independent or non-politician?

We as a country desperately need a centrist leader to emerge who can work with both parties and get us back to government by cooperation. This approach will probably need a third party to act quickly and efficiently. Any ideas of who would be a candidate that meets these requirements and has executive skills and leadership qualities? If so please respond. It is time to act.
