You'd think the Democrats would give more time to their rising star and a "strawng woman of cullah™ " who the GOP supposedly fears so much. :lol:

It's not impossible I guess, but Biden and Harris are probably safer than Obama ever was.

I prefer the one who doesn't want to steal my wallet and guns.
So even after the shutdown, you're going with Trump?

Re: What do we have to do to get better presidential candidates?

I would suggest this for the primary schedule: February: 5 states have primaries (choose 5 states that had the closest result in the last presidential election) March: 5 more states (choose the next 5 closest) April: 5 more states (the next 5 closest) May: same thing June: The other 30 states hold t...

Re: What do we have to do to get better presidential candidates?

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, we need to get rid of our idiotic system of staggered primaries, or at least rotate which states go first. There should be no bitching about how the EC makes some states matter more than others until that is dealt with.

What do we have to do to get better presidential candidates?

Is there anything that can be done?

I would be fine with requiring at least 3 or 4 people in each debate, but I'm not sure that's going to help third parties or independents very much.

I've suggested banning all closed primaries before, but that's probably not going to happen.

That whole interview is a cluster fuk. No one can say these are sparsely-cut and pasted pieces, And just in case it isn't obvious to some, that's not stuttering. Stuttering is being unable to get sentences out. It doesn't mean you come up with stupid sentences.

isn't this question really at the very center of it all? Why do some groups have more wealth than others or more single moms or more incarceration or drug use or worse health?
