Race to The White House!
I'm surprised we're not talking about this yet.
Can Sanders win the Democratic nomination? Clinton comes with so much baggage, i.e. Bengazi, Blowjob Bill, losing in 2008, the email thing... and Sanders, well, his campaign seemed like a write-off for so long, but now he's ahead in the polls in the first two primaries coming up next month. For the longest time I'd thought he was just there to wedge Clinton to the left on social issues, but his now his campaign has the momentum of a runaway freight train. Why is he so popular?
On the other side of the coin is Trump... I know we're all entertained by the spectacle, but are there really enough stupid people at large that when it comes crush time they will push that button? Generally I can't empathise with anyone stupid enough to be a Republican, but at the very least go for a moderate-seeming jerk like Rubio, who I'd put money on previously but am now not so sure about. Jeb! was always going to crash and burn, you can't make a hattrick out of a political legacy as shallow as that family name. In any other race I'd consider Cruz to be the too-idiotically-conservative-to-get-a-serious-look-in candidate, but this has not been your normal campaign. Not by a long shot.
Or has it?
