Good lord, all political processes are more or less soiled. It's a human thing. Show me a squeaky clean one. Plus, electing a president alone won't solve our problems. I think I've seen just about every trick in the book by now. But it's what we have to work with so I'm working to clean it up as much as possible and use it.

Watched the Sat,13Feb16, 9th Republican debate on CBS.

Couple of observations:

Jeb had a couple of (deserved) applause lines.

Rubio did much better, but his youth is still showing.

Cruz was pushing Trump's buttons and "the Donald" almost 'lost it'.

Trump also avoided directly answering the question, "Who can tell you 'you are wrong' ?" He started his evasion by mentioning his wife...

Carson sounded mature and calm.

Kaisch did fairly well.

Bush's pronouncements on Obama Care sounded like Bernie Sanders'.

The CBS moderator was inadequate and should have allowed the two guest reporters to question more.

For those of you who are sipping the Sanders kool-aid... need I remind you that it was not long ago when Barak Abu Ali Hussein Obama -- self-described "closest thing to a Jewish president" -- was sitting with Edward Said at "Free Palestine" events and such.

Dude stop comparing Bernie to Obama, it is childish.  Bernie has been involved in politics for ages, he could very easily have achieved mainstream political prominence decade ago were he to just toe the party line.  You would be blind to not recognize that he isn't your typical establishment candidate, give the man some due.

I've been following RealClearPolitics -the website- and it looks like the battle for the White House is in the Democratic Party.

Sanders beats all Republicans in the General Election --Trump included.

Opine: no matter who wins -Trump or Sanders- they will need a Republican controlled Congress or the winner will not get anything done.

Example: Sanders wants to get rid of ObumaCare and put everyone on Medicare. Republicans will go for this, but Democrats will object.

Thursday the 18th news said the Washington insiders are saying 'Clinton can govern but she can't win election'.

The biggest hurdle for Sanders are the super delegates, Hilary has 98% of them.  So the Democratic party itself is still heavily backing Hilary.  Sanders is hoping that with enough popular votes from the public he will be able to convince the delegates to back him, without their support its virtually impossible for him to win.

Bismillaah ir Rahmaan ir Rahiim.  As salaamu alaykum. 

How then is it possible that half of Democrats would prefer Hillary? Is it because she is a woman and women want a woman president more than they want their civil liberties, peace, and employment for themselves, their spouses and their children?

If you vote for Hillary, you are voting for someone who has been paid off to the tune of $153 million by powerful vested interests who have no concern whatsoever for your interests. In addition, Hillary has the necessary campaign funds from the powerful interest groups for her presidential nomination campaign. As if this isn’t damning enough...
