Re: Hillary = more than 350 super-delegates

This could be the most contentious convention in our lifetime, not to mention great political theater.

Re: Breaking the Law for Better Lives

WuLong,

First, thank you for sharing the story. It is a good one, and I agree something that everyone can learn from.

Ultimately, any organization will feed its own needs rather than the needs of those it was created to support. [more]

Re: Hilary can deliver revolution. Bernie can't

There's a decent chance right now that the Republicans will nominate a Latino candidate - also an historic outcome, and raising the possibility of the first Latino President as well.

And if they don't select a Latino, their other [more]

Too bad really. He provided a lot of diversity to the rep field and he spoke to those folks that supported a reduction in our military spending, that supported decriminalizing pot, and those that wanted to seriously reform our criminal justice [more]

This is in the instance that the woman gets pregnant during the rape, right? It's not like the victim is betrothed to the rapist.

Re: 51,666

what are the top three problems in Candidate Ted Cruz.

1. He wants to privatize social security (even if you agree with it, you know it is a political loser, probably even among the GOP base.)

Will Rubio be able to take the heat?

Now that Rubio has received the crown of "establishment favorite", he can expect a lot of fire from many directions.

He's going to get hit hard, and often, by Trump on immigration. And on his sweating.

He's going to get [more]

Re: Headlines

Hillary may have technically "won" by the slimmest of margins, but Sanders won the battle of expectations in a landslide.

Re: Bernie vs Hillary

If Hillary is the nominee it is nominating a republican on democratic ticket.

If you believe this, you haven't looked at the positions of the candidates on the issues.

Re: Well, Iowa Voters Are Somewhat Sane

I would expect him to first deregulate the financial sector and then, when the inevitable meltdown comes, refuse bailouts.

Would this happen before or after the carpet bombing of ISIS?

Rubio vs. Cruz

Well, it could be the beginning of the end for Trump! He's a winner, and as long as he wins, everyone believes he's a winner.

Until he doesn't win. And he didn't. Now, he's a LOSER!

For the moment, let's pretend that New Hampshire [more]
