The battle for the Democratic nomination is nearing crunch time with roughly one month left before the Iowa caucuses. Some big-name candidates have dropped out — most notably Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) — while former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has joined the field. Who has the best chance of winning the nomination? 1. Former Vice PresidentJoe Biden (July ranking: 2) Biden has led national polls since he launched his campaign in April. His advantage has eroded since then, but it is still significant. The former vice president is roughly 10 points ahead of his nearest challenger, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), in the polling averages

All of the current candidates are placeholders until Hillary steps in to “save” the party. Every demographic and geographic group is covered, but none of these candidates have realistic shot.

A fine crop of losers. Can you imagine Bootyjudge as President? I doubt he could even find the front door of the WH without help.

Biden may be the best known, but age seems to have caught up with him. If elected, he would be a figurehead President with somebody else pulling the strings. It would be nice to know who that somebody would be. Possibly it would be his VP running mate, but it could be somebody hidden from view.

My opinion is that the Democrat nomination process is fixed. The DNC will select the nominee. The current process being played out is only for show.

Everyone needs to be aware of the loophole in the Democrat party rules. Should a nominee die or be disabled or even voluntarily step down AFTER winning the nomination at the convention but BEFORE the actual November election, then the Washington D.C. Democrat party "leaders" get to nominate the front-runner. The Vice President nominee does NOT automatically move up! This is where the devil is in the details. Yes ... a month before the election Mooch-ele, Hitler-y or even Doom-berg could be given the nomination. Convention be damned. Some states make you keep the dead nominee as they can't change the ballot in time but those electors (remember them?) can vote in the Electoral College for the "new" guy/gal. Put nothing past the Dems!

Once upon a time, Howard Dean was sailing to the nomination until Iowa slapped him down. The resulting meltdown ended his candacy. Jeb Bush was the assumed front runner and never made it past 3rd. If a candidate isnt running away in the polls, all bets are off.

I keep waiting to see if either Bloomberg or Steyer start gaining traction. They have been carpet bombing Florida with Ads on TV constantly. Is it like that everywhere else in the country? I can see either of them 'buying' the nomination or possibly the VP spot. Befuddled Biden still looks to be the top contender, but mainly because the field is so weak. None of them are believable or have workable plans. It should be a landslide for Trump in the general election, but with the way things are anymore don't bet on it. The best thing going for Trump is his own willpower. The man is driven. Will that be enough to get people to vote for him? There are many corrupt forces working against him. He cannot count on the Republican party or a fair media.

To be at the front of a collection of nags does not make you less of a nag. If all the current candidates really tried, they might find two brain cells to rub together. That they will actually do so is very doubtful. Remember the Hawkeye Caucii are exclusively blue-stocking Democrats who do not have to work for a living and can spend 8 PM--4 AM doing their caucus thing. This is not your average voter. So the odds are on Bernie. It is his turn.

They are all ranked as LOSERS in a imploding party. Unfortunately, 30% - 40% of voters are delusional and would vote for a dem donkey, a real one. Trump is going to win. The question is, how much of the mushy middle retains the sanity needed to vote to support the Republic? Enough for a landslide for Trump, solidly winning the House, and increasing our hold on the Senate?

I continue to believe the democrat nominee will be someone not talked about in this article. I also can't believe that any of the candidates on the list are placeholders. Campaigning is a demanding sport - physical as well as mental. The party leaders, whoever they are, cannot give a big enough prize to a placeholder. A better discussion would be to speculate whether any of those on the list would be selected as a vp running mate. Balancing the ticket, for a party of categories, is tricky. Lady Lucifer, in 2016, selected an absolute dud as running mate. DJT made a brilliant choice in Pence.

Biden as the front runner because he leads in "national polls" is as specious as PIAPS winning the election because she led the Popular Vote. It's meaningless. He is trailing in early individual primary states, and poor showings in those contests will expose him as a Potemkin Candidate. And he only leads in national polls because of the name recognition garnered from being The Won's Veep, not because of any great groundswell for his candidacy.

If I recall correctly, the dems' primaries and caucuses are not winner-take-all (any candidate that gets 15% of the vote gets a portion of the delegates) which means that there is a strong likelihood that none of these wannabes will get to the convention with a clear-cut majority of the delegates. And this time around super-delegates are barred from voting on the first ballot. Then the fun begins. Deal making; back stabbing; smoke filled rooms; garden variety chicanery and the whole spectrum of democrat depravity will be on display.

They all know Trump is going to win and at this point it will be a self sacrifice to be the nominee. It’s like who wants to be the first to see if the gallows works. They all have a sense of impending doom and dread knowing they just have no chance of winning. Even if Hillary pulls the football on the Charlie Brown conga line of wanna be’s even she knows it will be a two-peat major defeat even bigger than ‘16.

The 'Rats don't have a 'best' candidate. All that they have right now is a 'least bad' candidate. As bad a candidate as Quid-Pro-Joe is, the others are ever worse. What do the evil schemers behind the green curtain at the 'Rat party have in mind? We KNOW they have a plan, we just do not know what it is. Will they stage the HildeBeast swooping in on her broom to 'break the deadlock' in their pre-'brokered' convention? Time will tell. I believe that regardless of who the 'Rat candidate is, that President Trump will beat them (as Joe Dan Gorman says over at 'IntellectualFroglegs.com') "Like A Red-Headed Rented Mule".

‘Epstein Didn’t Kill Himself’ Explains
Why Trump’s Impeachment Is A Sham
16 replies
Posted by Pluperfect 1/9/2020 5:02:24 AM Post Reply
There is a simple reason President Donald Trump should not have been impeached by the House, and the Senate should acquit him: Epstein didn’t kill himself. In writing this, I don’t mean I am convinced that the billionaire child sex-abuser was murdered by one of his many wealthy and powerful acquaintances to keep him quiet — although I wouldn’t rule that out. Rather, I mean it in the sense in which “Epstein didn’t kill himself” has become a pervasive cultural meme, as a general assertion of cynicism regarding the incompetence and moral degeneracy of our elites, which has produced a crisis of credibility for our leaders and institutions.

Elizabeth Warren’s once-surging Democratic presidential nomination bid is losing steam. After largely shunning national television interviews, the Massachusetts senator, 70, appeared on Sunday morning news programs and MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show. She also unveiled a scarce endorsement from a former rival for the 2020 Democractic presidential nomination, hosting a rally this week with Julian Castro, 45, in New York. And she bounded into the New Year with campaign trips to Iowa and New Hampshire. But, while she’s built a strong organizing network of paid field staff and volunteers in the states hosting the first two nominating contests, she’s making her final push ahead of the start of the primary season

News organizations intent on framing news events to meet their ideological predispositions should carefully consider the legal fallout from last year’s coverage of the Covington Catholic high school students. It is risky to force news reporting into partisan sociopolitical templates. CNN has agreed to settle a lawsuit filed earlier this year by Nicholas Sandmann, the high school student who became the focal point of news coverage when a Native American demonstrator encountered Sandmann and his classmates in Washington, D.C. That coverage, by CNN and other major news outlets, was extensive and sensational, sending the nation into an unnecessary uproar. Sandmann was originally characterized by journalists as the aggressor

In his address to the nation this morning, Donald Trump asserted that the ballistic missiles that targeted the al-Assad and Erbil bases in Iraq yesterday were paid for using “funds made available by the last administration.” Few things irritate media fact checkers more than Trump’s accusation that Obama helped fund the Iranian regime and its terror apparatus. Probably because it’s completely true. Now, we don’t really know that Obama’s ransom payments to Iran in 2016 subsidized those specific ballistic missiles, but we do know that money is fungible — especially when you have access to small denominations of European cash — and that the military,

Instead, let’s start with that plane. You know about the plane, right? That would be Ukrainian International Airlines Flight 752, which took off from Imam Khomeini Airport in Tehran at 6:12 a.m. local time, accelerated quickly to 275 knots,

If you have played poker, you have played against a guy like my friend Woody. Woody talks a big game, makes big bets, relentlessly raises the stakes at all kinds of inappropriate times and usually walks away with the biggest pot at the end of the night. President Trump is like Woody. He would be a nightmare to play poker against. He is always on offense. He is always making a big show of his big bets. When he does fold, he does it so quietly, nobody really notices, because he is on with his next big bet. Predictability used to be the hallmark of America’s international policy. But Trump has changed that equation.

A passenger plane bound for the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, has crashed a few minutes after taking off from Tehran’s main international airport, killing 176 people. Iran’s Red Crescent said there was no chance of finding survivors, and Pir Hossein Kulivand, an Iranian emergency official, later told state TV all those onboard had been killed. Victims of the crash included 82 Iranians, 63 Canadians, 11 Ukrainians, 10 Swedes, four Afghans, three Germans and three Britons, according to Ukraine’s foreign minister, Vadym Prystaiko. Most of the passengers were en route to Kyiv, transiting through there to other destinations.
