Perhaps now that it's down to Trump the GOP will line up behind its candidate with the most (back) support:



Given the candidates still in the race, I think Empty Chair's got a real chance this year.

So. It comes down to Clinton or Trump.

Sanders did win Indiana.

(And actually, on the faint optimistic chance that Hillary doesn't insist on acting like an egotistic vindictive a-hole to punish all her political rivals that dared speak against her, Bernie Sanders would make ONE HECK of a vice president.
Used to be, we didn't know what a VP did, and, in fact, most Republicans still don't--We think a VP sits around all day, and they think "He gets to be president if something happens, and then he gets to be the candidate four years later!" and it goes to the candidate dim or crazy enough to take the job when every other competent Republican candidate who tried running for the main office is too proud to demean himself to the position.
But when Obama explained why he picked Joe "Who?" Biden, he really lay it out for us--The VP is Speaker of the Senate, meaning he's in charge of keeping the Senate running in smooth order, choosing the right people for committees, and even working with the senators to get the right people together to help push the president's platform agenda through the sessions.
That's Bernie. He'd have been an odd president, but he'd get things done behind the scenes.)

The pros and cons of this election season:

Pros:
- Both major parties will be forced to reform themselves or risk irreparable damage. And that's only if party leaders are even smart enough to realize what the only option is.

Cons:
- We're stuck with a narcissistic authoritarian as our president for at least the next 4 years.
- We'll have a SCOTUS that works against the people and for the government.
- Our presence around the world will make us look worse than we look now (isolated economy and war crimes if Trump, Middle East cease to exist if Hillary).

Overall, America loses no matter who wins the election. We're going to need a miracle to fix this country after the chaos Trump or Hillary plan to cause.


However, although a bitter pill, it's possible to rationalize Hillary support as "The Less Barking Outhouse-Rat Batsh*t-Delusional of Two Evils".
Thanks to actually having had a past political job, Hillary will be sane tomorrow, and Don will be crazy for the rest of his life.

Can't wait for Trump to make America great again because Obama has done a good job of doing nothing and ruining the country with his idling.


have fun having to pay a premium price to access certain websites you do on a daily basis. Trump is firmly against net neutrality.

I could live with Sanders. I don't think he will beat Clinton though. I don't really see him as VP either. Most of his appeal is that he isn't a standard corrupt politician. Put him on the ticket with Clinton and you tarnish that image. I can live with Clinton too. It's just unfortunate that's the best we could do.

More importantly... we are living in a world in which Donald Trump could actually be President of the USA. Donald. Trump.

It would be nice if this were true. Unfortunately, Hillary's track record in politics says otherwise. Having someone who spent their entire life as a career politician making everything they touch turn to dust isn't really better than a guy with no political experience dumbing everything down to fifth grade level speech. It's like asking what's your favorite method of suicide? Bullet to the head or overdose on meds?

As for Bernie being the VP, you have a better chance of winning Powerball every week than seeing this. Someone already said it, but there's no way the guy who's spent his entire political career as an anti-establishment politician will agree to be the running mate of the very person who is the face of everything he stands against. The probability of that happening is so low, you'd fall asleep before counting how many digits come after the decimal. I bet Hillary's VP will either be Elizabeth Warren or someone I've never heard of.

The most we can hope for now is for both parties to be destroyed and start from scratch after this election so we can maybe have better choices in 2020.

Not sure who you're referring to since that phrase can be used to describe a lot of the candidates this year.

Everything about Cruz is cringe-worthy.

Sure Trump is annoying too but he has NOTHING on Alien Lizard Cruz.

As are Trump and Hillary. What is your point? All three are insufferable people. Just as no one can stand to be around Cruz, no one can stand to be around Hillary. Both are people that make everyone around them miserable. And Trump is an attention-whoring jackass. Unfortunately, Cruz is the only one of the three that wasn't an authoritarian, and actually believed in following the constitution. The other two would sooner use it as toilet paper.

I don't like Cruz. That's my point.
