How many more polls are you going to make?

BRTD has to make a new poll every 3 hours, otherwise he'd explode. It's like breathing for him.

Looks like Hillary can do what Mondale couldn't; be the first Democrat to lose Minnesota since 1972.

LOL

CHA-CHING!

There's hardly cause for petty gloating. Clinton won a state that was assumed safe by less than 2% and with only 46.5% of the vote. It was the worst performance of any Democratic presidential candidate in Minnesota in the absence of either a significant independent candidate or a landslide Republican victory since WWII. In retrospect, we all should have been terrified by this prediction, not laughing at it.

Seriously. The "voted Democrats continiously" streak almost ended with no one seeing this coming.

1. A business man in the White House instead of a community organizer.  Expect better organization of all things related to the executive branch.

When will you guys understand business =/= government?
107  General Discussion / Constitution and Law / Re: Could you merge the positions of Senate Majority Leader + President Pro Tempore? on: November 28, 2016, 11:47:14 am
I believe in some State Senates (most notably New York) those position are merged.

If we have Speaker, who's still his/her party leader in the House, in the line of succession, why not have the Majority Leader as well?

Of course.

Sure, everybody's responsible for Hillary's defeat but herself and her team.
110  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Which Cuban Regime Was Worse? on: November 28, 2016, 08:13:48 am
Also, we can't rule out that if Cuba remained the same as under Batista (possibly replaced by a succession of other little caudillos), we'd eventually see a banana republic torn by a long and devastating civil war, like in Guatemala or Nicaragua, once the population couldn't take any more of being a casino/brothel for rich Americans and mafia.

Saying Cuba would be actually better off without Castro is a big "if".

To draw an embarrassing but accurate parallel: the "sock" is the Forum equivalent of an undocumented immigrant.

No, the sock is the forum equivalent of a criminal who flees to Mexico to escape getting caught.

Wouldn't it be more like an escaped fugitive who takes on a new identity to live a new prison-free life (within same country)? A criminal fleeing to Mexico implies they are running away from the forum, not returning.

Not necessarily. We're talking about a criminal who'd been legally deported, but can't resist visiting frequently via illegal entrance.

It's not Florida 2000. Such challenges won't change the outcome of this election and Hillary seriously jumps at it, she'll only deepen a perception of her being power-obsessed in addition to becoming a sore loser.

Trump doesn't have a popular mandate. Trump won the election fair and square per existing rules. Those two are not mutually exclusive.
116  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Did the Sanders challenge cause HRC to lose the general election? on: November 27, 2016, 04:47:13 pm
This idea that candidates somehow benefit from field-clearing and that we should make their primaries as easy as possible is bs. If the Democratic Party hadn't intimidated everyone except a kooky old radical from Vermont out of the race, Clinton might have actually benefited from practice against serious competition. As is, she was in an absurdly tight race against Bernie Sanders and it just goes to show just how weak a candidate she was that she wasn't able to put him away right from the start.

Good point. Competing with Hillary till the last moment certainly helped Obama come GE.

I think Clinton and her team always lacked self awareness. They should have consider this (Sanders' performance while being her sole opponent) as the early warning and learn from it. They failed to notice and paid the price... or rather screwed the country.

No one is going to seriously argue Hillary couldn't have won the election. It was her election to lose and she managed to flush her entire box of advantages down the toilet.

119  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2020 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Would Elizabeth Warren make a strong candidate? on: November 27, 2016, 03:25:20 pm
Elizabeth Warren would appeal anti wall street citizens and those who are worried about healthcare. She has a great charisma also.
But we don't know if she can attract African-americans and other minorities in southern and western states.
Because she's from New England, she'd need to pick a midwesterner like Brown or Ryan, a southerner or a westerner.
She shouldn't do like John Kerry in 2004 or Dukakis in 1988.

She is born and raised in Oklahoma.

Three good things that came from the state of Oklahoma:

1. Mechaman
2. Fred R. Harris
3. Elizabeth Warren
