    Do you say that about male politicians too, or do you just save that just for women?

    All the ones that throw staplers at their staff's heads, Yes.

    And you. Except I use "little" instead of "raging."

    If you're a woman you're a bitch, if you're a man you're doing what ya' gotta do.

    Trump's the biggest bitch going and it's in plain sight. We don't have to wait on reports from subordinates to know this. We do hear from those subordinates all the time though. Clown actually does think he knows more than his generals.

    Klobuchar may be rough on her staff but I'll still vote for her over the stain in the White House.

    If that's true...then she's not better than the rest unfortunately.

    generally I think there’s a harder time given to female politicians on every front than male ones

    Can sanders or mayor Pete win or are we walking into a McGovern type slaughter?

    Sanders wins but the moderates show strong. Biden and Warren on the ropes. Nevada is next.

    No way Sanders wins. Pete can win but Trump will play the homophobia card.

    We’ll get to see how far America has come from its homophobia

    Exactly what I am afraid of with Sanders. Yesterday a poll came out that indicated Bloomberg has the best numbers against Trump. That was before all the crap came out. Unless you are a gun nut buying what the NRA is selling, not sure why Bloomberg wouldn't get a bunch of votes from independents and some Republican votes.

    There are essentially 4 candidates left.

    Sanders - Devoted following but little appeal to the swing and moderate voter.
    Klobuchar - May pull the Hillary vote and moderates but has little organization outside of Iowa or NH
    Mayor Pete - Strong position but little appeal among African Americans and you need them to have any chance to win.
    Bloomberg - Could easily buy the nomination and oddly, he polls well with blacks recently. His philanthropic work over the years has paid off

    Sanders can’t win. He’s the one candidate that could make me go back on ever considering voting for Trump.

    It’d be a Reagan/Carter landslide. Trump Campaign would be drooling at the thought of running past speeches of him praising Moscow, Castro, Ortega, Sandinistas, even Venezuela and than one anti-America screed after another.

    I like that Buttigieg has executive experience, actually knowing what it’s like being the one in charge and having to make decisions from imperfect options. I wish it was something more than Mayor of a mid-size town of barely 100K people.

    My nephew and his family lived right outside of South Bend until recently and had Pete and his partner as neighbors. I too like his experience as an executive and his youth refreshing. Is appeal outside of white mid america will be tested in Nevada and South Carolina. If he can do well there, that could be big.

    For 3.5 years democrats have been railing against the electoral college in favor of a nat'l popular vote that'd make rural Americans serfs.

    But here they are in their primary w/Sanders 2-0 in the popular vote so far and Buttigieg w/the most delegates.

    And yet, Bloomberg is
    And Bloomberg is essentially sitting out these early small states, cause he wants to capture the big states down the road.

    So he's going to swoop in where numbers make sense.

    To me...doesn't that make you see the value of electoral college? It keeps you honest and not "gaming the system" that a straight popular vote gives rise to..

    Only the super liberals have complained about the Electoral College. I see the need for it and Trump won in 2016 because his team saw the election that way and focused on winning in those states that got him to 270. Hillary took it all for granted.
