When you say 'in its most common form', do you mean, as in, 'not joking', 'actually am', or 'what does it look like'? Or in the more common form like 'put my money where my mouth is', 'watch and see', or 'wanna bet'.
See if you define the word, then I will be able to use your definition to determine the validity of the candidacy of each candidate for all presidential campaigns.
