    He was never smart and people were saying he had great advisors. They either aren't great or he isn't listening to them. But he and Andy Young were arrested trying to see Nelsom Mandela, only Ambassador Young doesn't remember it happening.

    I'm still trying to figure out how the Democrat brass is caught off-guard by Bernie. I guess it's the same clan who thought Hillz could ignore Wisconsin. Bernie's the only one up there besides Fauxahontas who can string an intelligible seven word (or more) sentence together and doesn't come off like a complete jackass with every utterance (Bloomberg). Bernie is by far their best talent up there, AINEC.

    A Bernie presidency is a nightmare proposition, but in terms of campaigning talent, the other 5 can't carry his jock, even if they teamed up. I see the dude's ads on Facebook and I have to stop and watch, because he can captivate an audience. His talents are misplaced, but he is a talent, to be sure.

    I think Biden is the worst potential president, than Bloomberg, than Bernie. I dont know why Steyer is still in the race. Buttigieg or Klobucher are clearly the only two competent people up there.

    Bloomberg is probably the most competent person up there, but realistically none of these people is worse than Trump.

    Biden does come off as losing it though in terms of age (even though several of them are similarly up there, along with Trump).

    I like Klobuchar, but actually she needs to get out because...math.

    Yeah math. Biden is good in the south with democrats where he loses to trump across the entire south. Bernie just gave up Florida. Cubans weren't going to vote democratic but a Cuba lover is going to get them to the polls in droves. The election will be won in flyover country. A northeast liberal isn't going to win there. Klobuchar and Buttigieg will. I think Buttigieg needs a little more seasoning. Klobuchar beats trump like a drum in the general. Bern ie won't, bloomberg might and Biden is a senile idiot.

  6. And they are bringing up the rear of the pack... which explains how much trouble the blue folks are in. The radicals and insurgents want to take that party over and the adults are getting pushed aside.

    I have never seen a brokered convention in my lifetime (hasn't been one since the 50's). Will be kinda cool to watch :D.

    The blue folks keep debating and debating.... and President Trump keeps being the "winner" every time.

    Biden wins the rust belt against Trump, that is his electibility argument in theory, and it was a good theory. Though obviously his declining faculties put that greatly in doubt.

    Klobuchar just has no chance at all of winning the nomination, so any theorizing how she would do against Trump is a waste of time. I mean she would be my choice right now most likely, but I suspect she will be gone after Super Tuesday.

    Most likely it comes down to Bloomberg and Sanders, if Bloomberg is smart he would consider Klobuchar as a running mate.

    I think Biden would be a fine President because he wouldn't be running the country. Buttigieg is just ew. So arrogant.

    I know you don't like Buttigieg, but what president hasn't been arrogant? Trump, Obama, W, Clinton. All arrogant as hell.

    Bush senior might be the last president that wasn't arrogant.

    To the extent the others were arrogant, they hid it better (except for Trump). I don't find the guy likable at all.

    If Bernie wins the nomination you know that trump and fox will call Bernie that and worse. Hopefully you will be just as outraged.

    Who would be running the country? I hope it's not his advisors who he either doesn't listen to or are too stupid to tell him to stop being inappropriate with women.

    I am not an expert in age related dementia, and I typically am against people making diagnosis over the tv but something is wrong. I tried to listen to the debate later night but it sounded like he said his assault weapons ban saved 150 million lives over the last 30 years.

    He said exactly that. And not in the last 30 years, but since 2007! Not to mention he told a crowd this week he was running for the U.S. Senate.

    If anyone watched that debate last night and thought Joe did “well” they themselves need to be checked for senility. He rambled incoherently several times and his senility is getting worse by the day.

    Who's running the country now? I think we're witnessing how that works with an erratic president with fading mental capacity at the moment.

    Biden was just endorsed by Jim Clyburn, probably the most influential African-American politician in South Carolina. Between the Clyburn endorsement and Bernie's history on gun control legislation, a double-digit victory by Biden in this Saturday's South Carolina primary is very possible and it could give up a boost in the other Super Tuesday primaries in the South.
