Those states are not claiming to be drawn in a nonpartisan fashion!   How thick do you have to be to not get this distinction?

Anytime someone on this site agrees with Republicans about anything, they are deemed a GOP hack.  

This isn't only about the CA thread. This is a overall impression about Torie. I recall him for instance drawing an OHIO map where the democrats would have got only 4 districts and saying it was a fair map.

To which Ohio map that I drew are you referring?  Let's get the map up first, and then I will comment.  Thing is, that I am aware of no such map that I drew where I claimed 1) the Dems would net only four seats ( as opposed to 4 in the bag with other seats within easy reach, or realistic reach), and 2) was "fair" in the sense that it tried to hew to Muon2's metrics. The thing is, is that in so many states, to get a map where the Dems get a share of the seats that matches their statewide percentages, one has to gerrymander in favor of the Dems to get there. That's because the Dems tend to packed in high concentrations in inner city CD's. You draw those hewing to appropriate governmental entity line subdivisions, and voila, a lot of surplus Dems reside within them, in 20% or more Dem PVI CD's. And suddenly the remaining terrain, becomes a much more friendly Pub playground.

The ten countries in the Saudi-led coalition are:
Saudi Arabia
United Arab Emirates

Oman being a notable exception, especially considering it's right next door...

Okay, I'm sorry, St. Leo but Hickenlooper is not going to run, and Warner/Booker won't either.

I doubt that Gillibrand and Klobuchar will as well. I'm pretty sure that Patrick has ruled out running. Warren has continued to deny running and I think that Schweitzer decided not to run either.

She should follow Bush's lead from 2000, and agree to do debates, but only a small number of them.  Refuse all debates until December, by which time most of her opponents will have dropped out anyway.

I don't think its voting patterns would be very different.

She could. I don't think she should, but she could. If she were to avoid debating O'Malley or Webb, then that would be unfairly hurting their candidacies and unfairly helping hers. She has name recognition - if people see her name on the ballot, and she hasn't had to defend her positions onstage, then they'll vote for her (in the primary, I mean). If O'Malley and Webb and others don't get a fair chance to take on her policies head on, then they'll get 2% or 1% (so exactly what they're polling at right now). They wouldn't have a chance to boost their poll numbers and have their opinions known.

I think if a candidate who is unanimously considered to be the frontrunner refuses to debate other candidates, the FEC or the DNC should intervene. There needs to be some regulation in place for that, so that candidates can't cruise to the nomination on name recognition alone and never have to defend their positions. Some sort of regulation that states if credible challengers exist, the candidates must debate. In 2000, Al Gore even debated Bill Bradley, and George W. Bush even debated John McCain, despite the fact neither challengers ever gained nearly enough momentum to win the nomination. If Hillary refused to debate Webb, O'Malley, Sanders, and Biden (looking increasingly unlikely that he runs though), then I would lose a huge amount of respect for her.
