Off topic, but...does Bernie Sanders have a realistic chance of getting the Dem nomination or is Clinton the candidate in all but name?

i honestly don't know. everyone assumed it was hillary a year ago but i think everyone underestimated just how hated she is AND i don't think anyone expected someone like bernie sanders to be drawing the kind of crowds and popular support he is.

it's going to be interesting.

We have a similar situation in the UK with Jeremy Corbyn a surprise front runner for the leadership of the Labour party. If he wins, Labour will be further to the left than they have been for over 30 years.

All we've got is early polling. Personally I think the Dems are about as likely to nominate a self described socialist as the Repubs are to nominate Trump. Certain death in both cases. Well..unless its Trump vs Sanders in the general...which would be hilarious.

oh well poverty is worse in africa guess we should ignore it in america.

what kind of dumbass stupid piece of sh....

anyways, we only have, effectively, two parties. it's much worse in the UK having some pretty sizable minority parties. and this last election showed why first past the post is an awful system for a many=partied parliamentarian system.
