RE: Donald Trump
Just a question, because I'm not really following this that much considering I don't get a vote, but what are the chances of Bernie Sanders actually getting nomination for the Democratic party over Hillary? A quick little google shows me that he's got some very sensible views, especially for such an old git. Seems to have opinions more inline with Europe, Canada, Aus and NZ than the typically very conservative (even the "liberal" ones) people you guys seem to keep electing (admittedly though Obama is pretty decent. But Romney almost got in so...).

I think if he got in he could really improve America. I think you guys could have a good shot of catching up to the rest of the western world. Provided he doesn't roll over and die.

Lindsey Graham?

Sanders is the only alternative to Clinton in the Democratic Primary as of now. Hard to say how real a chance he has (it is 400+ days before the actual election) but I know he has a strong following.

Pretty much the same as all the other cookie cutter republicans. I'm with her on guns and foreign policy, but once it gets to her view on marriage, homosexuality, abortion, sex education, contraception, etc., she's your stereotypical conservative.

I guess what I want is a pro gun, foreign policy conservative, civil rights liberal, economic somewhere in between...or something like that. There just aren't any, even that don't stand a chance.

Stop that, girly! I did a double take - thought Woof was back.

Zero.

US politics is not about sense but spectacle and Bernie ain't got no spectacle.

I recommend tuning your dials permanently to Nate Silver's excellent fivethirtyeight.com for the least spun analyses of US politics, plus a lot of other stuff that's useful and interesting that's ignored by the rest of our media because it isn't grisly or pornographic enough, or requires a three digit IQ to comprehend.

I don't think the Col. has much of a chance myself, but what does an outsider like me know.

That aside, I don't think he has no 'spectacle', given that he recently drew a crowd numbering ~27000 people...

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.
