    If a guy could figure out how to make a candidate the cool candidate from the start, he would be rich beyond his dreams of avarice. Being the cool candidate is not a guarantee of success, but it...

    I disagree. The debates are important. They are the only chance that voters have to see the candidates in anything other than scripted situations. Debates can be inefficient. Especially when...

    Interesting subplot from the GOP side of Iowa. Trump campaign accusing the Cruz supporters of stealing the election. Evidently the Cruz campaign sent out a press release that Ben Carson was...

    I get what you are saying. Bernie did much better than anyone could expect. Couple of things to remember though. Iowa is a caucus, not a state primary. The numbers of people involved are much...

    Speaking of big league organizations, the contrast between the Clinton and Trump results is a good example of the importance of doing the grunt work well. Clinton's campaign was ready and organized...

    Interesting. Donald Trump has just rediscovered what every other pretty boy candidate discovered. That organization is important. It is fun to give speeches and get nice poll results, but...

    There will be groups or individuals doing things like Ruby Ridge or Waco. But there are just not enough group discontent to generate rebellion. Things like the Federal Building takeover in Oregon...

    Don't think Income Inequality is, right now, the most important problem, but there is a danger of it becoming an important problem. There still is a large degree of upward mobility income wise in...

    I won't disagree with you that neither GWB nor RR were good choices, but both were super-excellent campaigners. Even money says GWB could be elected again in spite of doing a pretty bad job.

    I am pretty sure that Obama would win fairly easily. Not sure how to explain this, but right now Obama is being criticized by being compared to the ideal, what he should have done. Basically he is...

    Don't know about the GOP, but that number sounds about normal for the Democrats. It is a party made up of guys that are always willing to substitute their opinion for everyone else's.

    FWIW, in some ways it is just too bad that Trump appeared in time to suck all the air out of the room this election cycle. As interesting he is in his own way, it would have been fun to watch both...

    Democratic Debate - 12/19/15

    Not sure there is any point to having this thread, but here it is.

    JMO, but I thought the data breach/theft thing hurts Sanders. It makes him look like just another politician. Running as an...

    GOP Debate - 12/15/15

    Nothing insightful to start the thread, but I am interested in seeing this one.

    Trump seems to be lengthening his lead to the point where he could actually win this thing. The sum of the support...

    kinda off topic for a Donald Trump thread, but the concept of quantity over quality has not proved very effective in the modern era. Modern hi-tech weaponry has just proved itself too effective a...

    I think it is simpler than that. It is mostly Citizens United Court decision. It takes the process away from the many and gives it to the few. Get rid of the 529's and cap the donations to $500 or...

    Cruz was the guy that I picked at the start of this thing. I still think he is playing it smart with this 'be nice to Trump and Carson and wait' plan of his. Another guy I wouldn't vote for on a...

    That would seem to be the smart plan, but everyone wants the other guys to drop out. Politicians running for president are not the kind of guys that are willing to jump on a grenade to save someone...

    I can think of a couple, sheesh doesn't like Obama and it is fun to call people you don't agree with names. Nothing wrong with that. We all do that stuff when discussing politics.
