I was very disappointed in the performance of my Oklahoma Sooners.  We've got a lot of work to do and now have to run the table the rest of the way to have any shot at returning to the CFP.  Call me skeptical, but with Ohio State coming to town, plus TCU and an improved Texas squad, I just don't see it.  A lot of the Big 12 had a pretty lackluster day with the only real good game coming from Oklahoma State, but that coming against a JV team in SE Louisiana in Stillwater.  That's hardly an indicator of how things will go for them this season.  The only teams in the Top 10 that really did their job like they were supposed to were 1 Alabama, 6 Ohio State, and 7 Michigan.  Clemson had all they could handle from Auburn, Florida State goes tomorrow night against 11 Ole Miss, 5 LSU succumbed to an unranked Wisconsin team.  8 Stanford didn't exactly blow Kansas State out of the water and App State almost upset 9 Tennessee on Thursday.  10 Notre Dame is in a dog fight with Texas tonight and just gave up a touchdown as I type this late in the first half to trail 21-14.

It was hardly a weekend of impressive wins by the big dogs unless if you were from Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Hey, guys, long time no see!!  Can I just say that while I am an ardent Trump supporter and cannot and will not vote for Hillary Clinton, I do genuinely like Tim Kaine for a number of reasons.  He makes me not fear a Clinton presidency as much.  He seems to be moderately-liberal on most issues, definitely to her right and thus way to the right of Obama and Biden.  The only major beefs I have with him are his support for Common Core and the TPP.  On Common Core, Mike Pence is not very good with education, so that issue is really a wash between the two number twos.

Without Cruz, this entire shindig is useless then.

If Trump is going this hour, then what point is there in watching the Kasich hour?  Cruz has a point he is probably not even qualified to make it to the contested convention ballot...

I wish Anderson would let him finish his sentences.

My fb feed is filled with "BERNIE ABOUT TO BEAT THE SHRILL"

"THE WITCH IS DEAD AFTER TONIGHT"

Ugh

You see, Trump is not the only off-color campaign in the race.  Other candidates have questionable supporters, too.
8  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Will Ted Cruz Support Donald Trump When Trump Wins the GOP Nod? on: March 26, 2016, 08:36:52 pm
There is absolutely no way that the highly principled and pillar of honesty and integrity, Ted Cruz, would ever vote for the sniveling coward and pathological liar Donald Trump.

But if he's a pillar of honesty and integrity, wouldn't he hold to his pledge to support the party's nominee, even if it's Trump?


Fair point.  However, a highly principled individual could not, in all good conscience, vote for an individual like Trump who preaches hate, bigotry, racism, who advocates killing babies and toddlers, and who calls women fat pigs and dogs.

Whatever one may say about Trump's behavior, this "issues" were "issues" at the time the whole crew of GOP hopefuls signed a pledge to support the final ticket, one they criticized Trump for hesitating before signing.  Now, with Trump looking more and more like the nominee, look who are the ones not wanting to support the ticket.

Trump may be rude and crude, but a sniveling coward he is not.  Trump has dealt with the voters honestly, and in good faith, regarding the issue of party loyalty.  He has indicated that he would support the ticket so long as he was not deprived of the nomination unfairly by the GOP Establishment.  And I think most reasonable people understand what that means.

On that issue, the sniveling cowards were the folks who had no intention of ever supporting a Trump ticket.  They signed the pledge, then said "Trump's not going to be the nominee." when asked the question of "What if it's Trump?".  That's where Cruz is today.  Frankly, I'd have much more respect for Cruz if he came out and said he couldn't personally vote for Trump after what he's said about his wife, and I think most Republicans would, so it begs the question of why he, and other Republicans, are still playing patty-cake with the issue. 

There's no more "What if it's Trump?".  Right now, it's GOING TO BE TRUMP barring highly unlikely events and/or very ugly machinations at the GOP convention that will likely result in alienating most of Trump's supporters.  Is Rubio really going to endorse Trump?  Is Jeb?  Is Kasich?  If these guys don't ever intend to do this, they need to say this now, because if the entire GOP field of candidates can't bring themselves to support Trump as a nominee on philosophical or moral grounds, shouldn't those Republicans who haven't voted in primaries hear that from them NOW?

Trump may be Cro-Magnon man with his manners, but he's been far more honest than Cruz and the rest of the pack, including Kasich.  Think about that for a minute before telling me I'm full of beans.



THANK YOU!!!  You are absolutely correct!!

Things may be personal now, but at the end of the day Ted wants to defeat Hillary, so yes he'll support Trump.  He may not actively campaign, but he'll definitely support Trump.  The Supreme Court is on the line and Ted doesn't want to risk a 5-4 or 6-3 liberal court for the next 30-40 years just because of a personal attack.

When will we know Hawaii?

CNN said midnight ET before they switched to regular programming.  We've still got about 3 hours until results start coming in there.

You should also be careful saying he will win the nomination.

Nothing is guaranteed, but he's certainly got the best chance.  He's got an outside shot mathematically to win 1,237 outright and putting all this talk to bed.

In my opinion, he cannot afford to wait to shift his attention to Hillary while Hillary already shifts his attention to him.

His polls numbers may be real low right now, but remember, it's only late March.  He has defied all conventional wisdom so far in this campaign and there's no reason to think he won't continue to do so in the general.  Clinton has a lot of dirt to throw on Trump, but Trump has a lot of dirt to throw on Clinton and neither has fully pivoted to the general election, yet.  This is going to be a long, bruising fight.  It's going to get extremely nasty.  I give the edge to Hillary, yes, but in the wise words of Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, and I paraphrase, "Never, ever, ever underestimate Donald Trump."

Get your popcorn ready!

CNN election coverage without Wolf Blitzer?  What is this?

You don't expect Wolf to work on the Sabbath, do you?

I didn't know he was Jewish?  If that's true, very cool.
How could Wolf Blitzer not be Jewish?

I honestly never knew, but as a Christian, I have a lot of respect for the Jews, so good for him.

Sanders getting +70% in a combination of some Seattle precincts according to CNN.

I saw that.  Hillary's going to have a bad day in Washington.

I just hope the WA Caucuses don't have the problems that Utah, Arizona, and Idaho did on Tuesday.

What does everyone think will be the final delegate total for the day by itself?  Don't think of all the prior contests or super delegates, but just today.
I will trust my Google Trends prediction and say Bernie 99, Hillary 43.

That's quite the big day for Bernie.  I assume that's predicting a Sanders sweep?

Weather-wise, it's pretty nice in the Seattle area, so the weather probably won't keep turnout down.

That should be good for Bernie, no?
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Libertarian Party will be on the ballot in Oklahoma (GE) on: March 25, 2016, 02:00:51 pm
I'm very happy to see this in Oklahoma.  It's one of the knocks I've had about my home state not allowing any third parties on the general election ballot.  I'm not a third party member myself, but I still am happy to see this.

Wonderful times!!  I had to chicken out and go to bed at midnight CT the other night.  Depressing.

Before reading this thread, I was going to put HI in Sanders's column, but most of you are saying lean Clinton.  So, I guess I'll tilt it to Clinton, as well.  I agree Sanders on the other two.

When is CNN switching over to Election Coverage?

Ugh, I know, all this whatever nonsense happening in some other country is sooo boooring.  Don't they know there's a primary happening today?  Here in the U.S. of A.??!!

I was kind of joking, mainly because we didn't exactly have any early states tonight.  Heck, it's midnight CT and we're not even halfway through...
