Presidential election minus 31 weeks

A thread for discussion of the US presidential primaries, in which this week’s primaries offered a decidedly mixed bag for the front-runners.

Another week, another dedicated thread for presidential election discussion. Since we last met, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump won big in Arizona and lost big in Utah, with Bernie Sanders also trouncing Clinton in Idaho. The Democrats have got Washington (101 delegates), Hawaii (25) and Alaska (16) on the weekend, whereas the Republicans have nothing doing until Wisconsin on April 5.

  1. Hillary Clinton would be a poor president or vice-president. She gets the big calls wrong – on macroeconomic policy, universal health care, college tuition, fossil fuels, campaign finance and lobbying, military intervention, welfare systems, criminal justice system, respecting the laws pertaining to government archives.

  2. Democratic resources are still being frittered away on the primaries

    The Sanders campaign raised $44 million in March. Resources are not an issue.

  3. FFS! Rosario Dawson.
    That is just sad.

    I’m sure that a privileged Hollywood actress who lives in a gated community with a net worth of $16 million is very anti-establishment.

    I wonder how the far left supporters who support Sanders feel about Rosario Dawsons lucrative partnership with Sodastream.

    You know Sodastream, the Israeli based corporation which has suffered boycott and protest by Palestinean supporters and activists.

    Why doesn’t Rosario Dawson support the Palestinean people?

    Why does she take money from the establishment?

    Namely an Israeli corporation who had built a manufacturing plant (now closed resulting in 500 Palestinian workers out of a job) in the West Bank on supposed illegally taken Palestinian land and are accused by their Palestinian workforce as treating them like slaves.

    Typical hypocrisy from Sanders supporters.

  4. Bill Daley, commerce secretary under President Bill Clinton and ex-chief of staff to President Barack Obama has been interviewed on CNBC and given a couple of names who he predicts will be Hillary Clintons VP running mate.

    He thinks it will be either Senator Tim Kaine from Virginia or Senator Al Franken from Minnesota.

    My prediction from the other day @ 51 is looking better and better 🙂

    But your prediction from about a month ago that Bernie would be gone within the week isnt looking so good.

    And my bet on Kasich is heading south. He seems unable to make any significant gains in Pennsylvania or NY. He needs to win a couple more states or at least challenge them if he will be anything more than a whimper at the convention. And no new endorsements either.
