So everyone comes out of Iowa as a winner!

Sucks for whoever actually ends up getting the most delegates because there won't be any surge or momentum or all the immediate headlines that can help put wind in their sails and put doubt in the other candidates and their supporters.

The closest thing I could pick up on was that Bernie probably won, Mayor Pete might've also done very well, Amy did better than expected and Joe didn't do well...and I didn't get a pulse on where to guess Warren finished. Strange thing there was that CNN and MSNBC didn't carry Warren's speech live. Think it was Biden who they choose to go with who started at the same time, then Biden ended and both networks decided to have their panelists comment about it all while leaving a little box on screen without audio of Warren talking away. They did then go back and play it in it's entirety, but they could've cut in after Biden was done. Kinda feel like she got a little short changed on her air time.


If this is your takeaway from Iowa the dems failed you. You are not remotely excited about anyone.

Bumping up for the debate tonite. I think this is the one Lil' Mike bought his way into and the DNC bent the rules that ended Corey Bookers chances of competing.

They're getting better at verbalizing their ideas. Andrew Yang is a contender. Listening to Joe is like hearing Al Bundy talking about his 4 touchdown game. Oh, am disappointed no lil' Mike yet.

Purposely and obtusely avoiding the point, as usual.

Although it is inspirational that you feel the forefathers nailed it the first time, right down to women not having the right to vote or a slave being three-fifths of a person. We all gotta admire something.

"The rest of the country doesn't matter."

This comment was taken from what I believe to be a whining criticism of the Electoral College. Funny, the exact same peeps on this board complaining about President Trump's alleged lack of respect for the Constitution are the very same ones who are still pissing and moaning about Hillary's loss. The rest of the Country might take exception to the above "argument"....


well lets take a look at the full quote from 2112 below to find out:

quote:
People need to keep in mind, the winner is really dependent on the winner in about 5 states. The rest of the country doesn't matter. If the Democratic candidate can beat Trump in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Florida...that's all that matters. If the Democratic candidate doesn't appeal to voters in those states, Trump wins. Trump's favorability never changes. The cult loves their leader no matter what he does. All that matters is voter turnout in a few states.


he's projecting that most states won't matter in this upcoming election due to the electoral college. nowhere is he denying that we all have a say with our vote, and nowhere did he suggest ending the electoral college. bhawk never suggested people don't have a say. they are both talking about how the electoral college could either help or hurt Trump. care to follow-up with their point? sounds like they are genuinely interested in hearing your view, but you keep pivoting....hence your wonder about:

The fact they made the Constitution amenable pretty much nullifies your nitpicking. Do you know for a fact that all the forefathers felt that way about women and/or slaves? Nope They discussed compromised, and came to the best solution they could. Something the I'll in DC couldn't do today. Their cult following would never go for anything like that.

Does this argument pertain only to President Trump? Did not President Obama carry the electoral college?...How about Kennedy?....or Bill Clinton?

I repeat, the forefathers got this right. California emerged as one of the most populous states in the Union, some 73 years after the adoption of the Constitution, proving their insight into the possibility that heavily populated areas should not control what happens everywhere. Saying that smaller states do not count is the most asinine & ignorant thing anyone can write, I suggest you return to H.S. and take civics again.

Well, damn. I certainly can't not answer your question, that would be tragic.

The point I was making (and you consistently ignore every time I bring it up) is that, depending on how you view it, the Electoral College is actually already mostly a population contest. There's plenty of examples in electoral history where the smaller states didn't matter at all. Take a look at the 2012 map and tell me that Rural America voting for Romney ended up mattering.

I'm not for getting rid of the Electoral College system, so don't make that leap. Personally, the representation math in the Senate is far sillier to me.

As for the Forefather worship, it's equally as asinine to believe that they nailed it all the the first time when it's been changed 27 times since.

California's population boom began around WW2 - in 1900 there were about 2 million people there. When it emerged as a state there weren't many people there, 49ers, settlers, lots of Chinese - maybe half million or so, a lot less if you subtract the Chinese, who weren't allowed citizenship until 1943.

Making my point that California was not a colony, has emerged as a population center and should not be the voice of people everywhere.

New Hampshire tonight.

What might it mean if Biden finishes 4th again, or even 5th if Amy can beat him?

My gut tells me Joe lives for Nevada, SC, and Super Tuesday. He should perform better then, however I think Mayor Pete is taking away from Joe's votes. Joe's trend has been down. I f Joe is not well up in the mix after those 3 voting days, then he is toast.

I don't think AK gains enough traction to be a real contender. In the end, if Joe is out of the mix, then it'll come down to Bernie, Mayor Pete, and Michael B. I think Bernie's message may be a big liability.

Time will tell.

If somebody makes a derogatory statement about people of color online, does that make them an e-racist?
