I admire you too, Ashley.

Your little friendly personal comment aside, it wouldn't surprise me if progressive types outside of the US don't take too kindly to the term. And I guess the responses here go to show how uncontroversial a term it actually is.

Another Republican debate is tonight.

So far, I have watched all the debates from both political parties.

I agree with Ran Paul's decision not to participate when he was banned from the main debate. This splitting to an undercard and main event is not a fair deal for the candidates or the people watching.

Its on now......

Shouldn't Donald be in favor of a temporary ban on guns until we can figure out what's going on?

Rand brings something unique to the debate stage and brings up important discussions. The media had it out for his father and they have it out for Rand. He actually qualified for the debate.

2016 US Presidential Election Pt. IV

There is some merit to having many debates. These guys are all much improved from the fall.

Competition would be a good thing for Mrs. Clinton. She's going to need to be sharp in the general. Remember after the first debate where she was great? And seemed to put away Sanders? And now he's apparently gaining momentum? Possibly because the DNC and DWS decided to hide the debates as much as they could? That strategy seems to have backfired.

For me, if I had to vote for these people, I'd obviously vote Kasich. I also think that we could survive a Jeb or Christie presidency.

The rest are just horrifying in so many different ways.

DWS puts the debates on Saturday Night when people are watching football. You are correct. It's not really helping Clinton stay sharp.

Trump gets GOP nomination, outside chance for Cruz, no brokered convention.

Agree. Add this to the prediction.


Cruz will be his VP. They have been sparing recently, but it's not mean spirited. Even the birther moments in the debate was filled with humor. Trump was saying he wants Cruz to cover his ass and get a declarative ruling from a judge. Trump saying he wants to be sure he's squeaky clean if he wants him as VP. Cruz won out on the birther exchange, but Trump crushed Cruz on the New York Values exchange. Trump's best moment.

I think Trump wants to keep Cruz as an option and not alienate his supporters.
Not sure he will choose him.

Rubio was born in 71. Neither of his parents were U.S. Citizens until 1975.

Both of these guys owe their rise to the Senate on the tea Party founded on birther movement.

This campaign is begging for a moderate third party candidate.

He wasn't banned. You overuse that word.

It's the GOPs own fault for allowing the clown car.

Stop blaming "the media" Paul had his own issues and skeletons that were real and his to own up to.

An interesting conundrum indeed.

A Trump or Cruz candidacy all but guarantees a D in the White House until 2020. This is where the more moderate Clinton would sweep the purple states.

One could argue, however, that this would present an opportunity for a real progressive (Sanders) in the WH because the competition will be so weak. But, gosh, that's some high risk/high reward going on there.

HRC should choose Bernie as her VP. Take his white college kids.

There is still a world in which Rubio is the nominee.
