    The more I think about last nights debate, the more I'm starting to smell something rotten. Anyone out there believe that the debates are a set up to shake the appearance that Hillary is on her way to a coronation?

    Sanders doesn't seem to understand that he's competing against Clinton. He refused to engage her and not only failed to use his most lethal weapon (Benghazi, the emails, etc) but even dismantled that weapon publicly.

    Webb and Chaffee? What? Who?

    Seems to me that Hillary has already begun the general election. Sanders is there to appear as an extremist, to give Hillary a more centrist appearance. Chafee and Webb are there to expand the field to five, so it looks like the democrats have an actual selection of candidates and omalley is there to answer the race questions. Webb also attracts the moderate/conservative democrats to become engaged in the campaigns. Webb and chafee will bow out before the next debate, to give more time to Hillary and sanders/omalley will eventually drop out and support Clinton.

    I'm not sure I fully believe the above. Actually, I'm not sure if i believe any of it, but after last nights debate performance, especially with omalleys "we're all one big happy family" closer, I do smell something not quite right. Seemed like an act, as if the questions were given to the candidates in advance.

    Biden will be the nominee. No way does Hillary survive what Valarie has planned for her. The email issue, which anyone else would be in jail by now, is just an appetizer.

    Follow the money. Obama wants the Clinton foundation cash and can't get it if she is president. Enter Valarie the enforcer.

    The Republicans eat their own, in the Presidential race and the House of Representatives, maybe they should learn something from the Democrats.

    Looky here fucktard, are you so stupid as to not realize that was a staged event last night? The host challenged everyone's answers but Hillary's, he glossed over the Benghazi question and did the same with the Iraq war qustion.

    The entire thing was setup for Hillary to win and for them not to be pitted against one another. 75% of the CNN questions asked to the candidates from the GOP debate were directed at another person on the stage, that didn't happen last night, you don't find that odd?

    You are a partisan hack.

    It does certainly seem that he is preparing and can get in the race at any time. In fact, the longer he holds out, probably the better. He does already have offices going in Nevada from what I have heard.

    How is what HH wrote inconsistent with what you've written?

    I'm voting next month because I won't be able to stomach my choices in 12 months.

    Hillary has either paid off or threatened any substantial opposition. Wonder what Andrew cupmo, Elizabeth warren and Biden think of your argument.

    If I didn't see Sanders I would have bet it was Ben Stern.

    My argument was that the Republican Party would be better served if they didn't destroy each other.

    "However, if this group of candidates conducts itself as the last group did in 2011 and 2012, Republican enthusiasm will decline dramatically. Republicans did not like then, and will like even less now, personal attacks by GOP hopefuls on other Republican contenders."
