Warren. Maybe Brown. We'll see how Harris does, but she seems promising.

Way too high. 50-50, even if Warren is already in. You will see that this man is more power-hungry than Hillary ever was.

Two presidential runs each sounds like a tie in that category to me.

So did Hillary, so what?


Donald Trump will be President of the United States in less than two months, Hillary Clinton is a has been politician who will never hold public office again. The election is over, you can't keep crying 'BUT HILLARY!' every single time Trump does something stupid.

Just pointing out the constant double standard that permeates this place.
One was 10 years ago, and the other is the future president yesterday. 

So did Hillary change her view since then or was she pandering back then, or is it just convenient to focus on Trump since he won without even acknowledging a President Hillary would feel the same way Trump does?

Sure she probably would feel the same way. The thing is, she's not going to be President and has zero power. Her opinion is irrelevant and it's a straw man.

Donald J. Trump's opinion matter. The Left also historically, at the base, tends to support flag burning as a first amendment right. Not that they approve; that they believe it's a constitutional right.

You and Jerry Arkansas are making my point on double standards.  Hillary lovers don't care she feels the same way Trump does only because she didn't win.  Thanks!  Smiley

Uh, yeah. If Hillary were PE and proposed this, I'm fairly sure we'd all oppose it too. But she's not, Trump is.

So, the people of Crimea should have no say over where they want to be? If you consider the referendum illegitimate, fine, but are you saying that no referendum should have happened?

In 1861 the states of Texas, Virginia and Tennessee each held a referendum in which their citizens voted in favour of secession from the US. Needless to say, the US federal government did not accept it.

Well, their white citizens voted that way.
6  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: SNL's beautiful, non-comedic tribute to 2016 Election and Leonard Cohen on: November 14, 2016, 01:39:56 pm
I'm sick and tired of comedians, who are supposed to be able to laugh at anything, turning comedy into just another bastardized venue for left leaning entertainment. Think George Carlin could survive the Clinton crowd?

I think the Leonard Cohen tribute was beautiful, but I also thought it was pretentious and antagonizing to a large amount of viewers.

Yesterday in Tallahassee was the Gaines Street Festival downtown. I went to see my best friend's band play and passed a "Dunk Trump" tank where some guy in a Trump costume could be dunked for a dollar per throw. It was being shared by Planned Parenthood and Transgender Tallahassee. I declined a chance to throw the ball but gave the Transgender Tallahassee organizers a dollar to put in the jar, and also though about giving the woman from Planned Parenthood with the bullhorn a piece of my mind as well before I realized that I was there to enjoy the music, not continue debates I've already won on Facebook

Why do they have to antagonize people? Why did SNL have to do this? Republicans like Leonard Cohen too.

 It's not about antagonizing people. Not everything is about you. I realize, though, that this is apparently a widespread problem among all Trump voters, not just you.
It's actually more about me than it is for a rando Canadian who was anti-gay marriage and anti-gay rights until he suddenly realized the truth and then did a complete political 180 to fit in with the new crowd. I've never seen some one change so much so rapidly and it speaks volumes about your character. Quit using our countries political affairs to justify your emotional tourism. It's not about how LGBT school teachers in Vancouver feel, it's about how we feel. Ok? This is getting really old. Knock it off.

Who exactly is "we" in this scenario?

It'll pass when the Democrat wins the electoral college and the Republican wins the popular vote.

Well, if Congress does what it does and votes to repeal Obamacare again, he'll have to sign or veto the bill, won't he?

@Nate_Cohn  1m1 minute ago Manhattan, NY

Last two days of early voting in NC have been very good for Dems, per our estimates. Lots of irregular Clinton vt



So if I read this graph correctly, and it hurts my aging eyes... Wink

Basically Nate Cohn is currently predicting an NC +6C win and that 55% of the electorate has already voted?

Around that, yes.

It is a conference about a program that has helped college students with disabilities and I will just talk about the help I got when I went to college.  I was selected because I did better than other students at my school who got the support.

Ooh, I do something like that too, I think! What's the program you worked with?

sources in both parties tell me their (separate) internal polling shows @GovGaryJohnson is sliding fast and it benefits @HillaryClinton

He wants to win. He wants to be President. He does not want to do the work of being President.
