    Unforced errors matter unless they are constantly and repeatedly excused.

    Yeah. For whatever reasons, that seems to be an exponentially greater issue with Trump's base than any other politician I can think of.

    Pat Boone and Ozzy Osbourne were once next door neighbors and both of them have said they got along great.

    Hillary's problem was she was an unlikable person who thought she knew best for everyone.

    I took a women in politics class (one of only 2 men out of 25 students or so) during my UF days and wrote a paper on Edith Wilson that was to make up something like 25% of the total grade. When I got it back the prof wrote something to the effect of "interesting story and well presented but this assignment was supposed to be about an ELECTED woman, therefore C-"

    I walked right over to the registrars office and elected to drop the class

    Arrogant idiot teacher. “Women in Politics” doesn’t mean “elected”

    That's exactly what I said....there were no specific instructions on "being elected". I actually found the story interesting and at the time (early 90's) it was pretty obscure.

    Yep. You should have gotten an A. Amazing how bad some college professors were.

    Maybe the guy had never heard the story and couldn’t properly grade it. What a jack ass.

    I'm more interested in the stories of how you fared in a class with a 12/1 female to male ratio??? Even in a "Women in Politics" Class, there had to be some lookers.

    Yeah, yeah I know. It's that Vast Right Wing Conspiracy that she was railing about years ago, wasn't it??

    I'd have voted for him in 2016 and would vote for him in 2020 in the GE. If it's Pres. Trump v. far left wing Dem, looks like I'm going third party (again).

    Agreed. The only real time that was a factor was 1960 (Kennedy-Johnson). Really not sure that a VP is needed to "balance" the ticket anymore.

    I know. It couldn’t be her criminal acts involving mishandling of classified data, or destroying evidence under congressional subpoena, or telling the country that the Libyan embassy was attacked because of a stupid video. And there’s no way it could be because she is a total phony and complete biotch, could it?????
