    1. People illegally in the United States should be given driver's license to insure they have full driving privileges.

    2. That people illegally in the United States should be allowed in-state tuition, but my daughter in Florida would have to pay radically higher tuition - unless she denied she was an American citizen and instead claimed she was illegally here from another country.
    1) Driver's licenses should be based on your ability to operate a motor vehicle.

    2) Doesn't bother me if they reside in-state. Each state has the prerogative to do what they want in that regard.

    Re: Hilary vs Huntsman 2016

    Huntsman has no chance to be the Republican nominee. After getting nowhere in his run for President, he went all bitter announcing he was boycotting all Republican functions and promptly rushed to the aid of Obama and his staff on Benghazi and on "the Dream Act." In return he has unsuccessfully sought appointment via Harry Reid including wishing to be president of the World Bank. He appears to me the worst of typical politicians willing to shift his position and loyalties on anything to climb the personal success ladder anyway possible. When he fails, he becomes bitter, changes his loyalties and pursues another path to power and fame.

    Is there really a difference?

    While not the stance on the subject that I would take, I would still take that over unlimited abortions paid for by the public.

    So first you claim Huntsman "ran as far to the right as possible" but then whine about how he gave illegal immigrants drivers licenses? Those are mutually exclusive claims. Then you declare his support of the dream act to be a "shift of positions and loyalties", even though is entirely consistent with his earlier stance on immigration.

    Your arguments are utterly irrational. You can't even avoid logically contradicting your own statements. It seems you have some personal hatred of Huntsman that causes you attack him regardless of what the issue actually is.

    He doesn't have the "it" factor for the national party either.

    Re: Hilary vs Huntsman 2016

    I truly don't understand the left's seeming acceptance of Huntsman. He was an ardent supporter of Ryan's budgets and by in large a social conservative. Why he garners so much praise in comparison with the remainder of the GOP field is beyond me. On topic though, I'd likely lean towards Huntsman in a choice between the two, given the right circumstances.

    Thankfully, I wouldn't have to choose either.

    Why does the Republican candidate have to be as lame, or lamer, than Clinton?

    I'd vote for anybody else. Jesus, God in heaven, I hate to even consider the idea that either would be on the final ballot. At the present, to be honest, I'm wondering if I'll vote at all. I voted for Gary Johnson last time. I'd vote for him again if he runs.

    In the grand scheme of things, I don't think either of them are going to do anything about the most serious issues in the country and government: jobs, infrastructure, government over-reach and war-mongering, etc. I don't have any hope for either of them doing jack about any of that.

    So... yeah.

    I honestly don't give a crap about 2016 at this point.
    Nobody's going to do anything with abortion, either.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
