    Meanwhile, Walker gets a pass on his 'etch-a-sketching' on comprehensive immigration reform .

    Well that's way Silver figures it.....with Walker and if he don't screw up. But Rubio only needs to make a showing or place there.

    His best chance would be to take Kasich. Then the Repubs wrap up Florida and Ohio. Won't matter who the Demos have at that point. They have to hope Kasich wont jump in.

    Rubio will be able to make up that ground in New Hampshire where more than likely he will win it being more moderate. (that's with who is in now for the GOP)

    Also the thing is due to the Invisible primary.....Donors have been giving Rubio's some nods.




    Another way is to talk to Republican voters directly or at least to poll them, as The Des Moines Register and Bloomberg Politics recently did in Iowa. That poll asked potential Republican caucusgoers whether they saw each of their candidates as “too conservative,” “too moderate” or “just right.” I’ve re-created that data below, removing voters who said they weren’t sure about the candidate from the sample.



    Rubio and Walker, being lesser known, have more chance to shape their image. And they can make some electability arguments of their own. In Rubio’s case, it’s about being a Hispanic candidate from a swing state with a good life story; in Walker’s, it’s about having been elected in a blue-leaning swing state three times in four years.....snip~

    The most appealing this about Walker for me is that he is battled tested and pre-vetted. If there was serious dirt on Walker it would have been found by now.

    I didn't say it did. Why is Clinton being blamed not only for her side of the relationship, but for Bill's as well?

    Why are you so bitter?

    I feel the same about Rubio in that if there was any dirt on him, it would have come out by now. Walker is a good candidate and his executive experience is a plus. Personally, I think there are a number of fine candidates that would make a very good president.

    Is South Carolina my neck of the woods? I'm in Washington DC. South Carolina is about as much "my neck of the woods" as Indianapolis.

    And yeah, wasn't a fan of Bush either. And hey, yet another comparison of Obama to Bush.

    I wish Kasich would toss his hat in.

    I also like Senator John Thune. He was in my top 3 for Veep picks for McCain in 2008.

    I'm in New Hampshire, and you're closer to me than you are to South Carolina, so technically the primary your neck of the woods (NH) went to McCain.

    I like this pic too!

    He's cute. I always thought he was cute. She's very attractive, I'm not sure I remember seeing her before.

    Greetings, Vesper.

    What does that tell me? Several possibilities come to mind.

    1) The big banks don't want her meddling in their affairs. With the hundreds of trillions - yes trillions - of dollars in derivatives that the "too big to fail" banks are attempting to remove from their books by making the taxpayers responsible for any losses that occur, this is going to be a big problem if things start to unravel globally. She doesn't trust them, and the feeling is apparently mutual.

    2) She has seen the handwriting on the wall that Hillary is totally determined to become the next POTUS, and will not tolerate another "upstart" interfering in her quest - she had that humiliation once, and does not intend to let it happen again. A million dollars is not enough money for her to fight it.

    3) The Clinton machine is a "one-world-government" backer, and depending upon what BHO does to either hinder or help her - since she is apparently his choice as his successor - it looks, at the moment, like there will only be one choice as the Democrat contender for the office.

    Things can change, and when the dust settles and a Republican nominee is finally chosen, that's when things will get serious. Hillary has a lot of baggage, but she does have name recognition, so we can count on seeing the most cut-throat election in history, IMO. World events will see to that, and the China-Russia machinations on the world stage to undo our favored nation status looks to me to be one of the most important in our country's history, because that is bigger than any one person could ever be, IMO. We shall see.

    Sure you did. You're busy claiming the right calls Bill a victim. Bill's certainly guilty of infidelity. Nothing happens within a marriage in a vacuum, however.



    About?
    The Clintons and their obvious problems. You're upset that they are being pointed out. Their problems are nothing new, and they both keep throwing fuel on that fire. That's not helpful to Hillary's campaign, and pointing them out is a normal routine in presidential campaigns. I believe this started several millennia ago in the course of people selecting their leaders. Those of you on the political left have the option of selecting a different nominee.
