So comrade Sanders won last night. Is America ready for a socialist President?

All I see is a first class collection of misfits, looking to run the most powerful country in the wold. How in the fuck does politics take a shit on this scale.
The people of George Washington's caliber have figured out how not to get roped into such a position or even be seen, anymore.

As I said on another thread, I'm going with Klobuchar for the Demo nomination

The elders prefer Klobuchar to Bloomberg, Bloomberg to Sanders, and when Sanders falters NOT by his own hand, he and his rabid followers will only be able to stomach Klobuchar

The elders won't go with Warren because she's unlikeable in a similar way to Hills, and they all learned their lesson there

Yeah, I guess that's it in a nutshell, that smart people know when to duck. What was that Chinese curse - May you live in interesting times.

Oh, and I'll add one more thing...

AK will have a genuine chance of sucking up a lot of moderates that are on the fence with Trump

The rest of the field is just 'too out there' and could actually swing votes in Trump's favor to the extent we'd witness a landslide victory

The Demo party elders know this

Yup, the more I think about it, AK is my biggest fear...

Yeah, that's the back handed blessing/curse.

I cannot imagine anyone who isn't extremely thick skinned or completely mentally divergent being able to survive a single term.
It has to be a total narcissist who can keep on track with their mission/plans and suffer all the slings and arrows being thrown at them.

Not a job I would be thrilled about since it means pissing off at least half the people, if not all of them, depending on what challenges presented themselves.
