    I wish they had at least one more night. The numbers are so high that I share your concern.

    I'm going to guess that a few of them will drop out relatively soon, and by the primary season next year that half of them will be gone. And that's a good thing. The real contenders will have their voices heard better. This crowd is just too large.
    It's disgraceful. I'm going to maybe and I'm looking at it very seriously. We're doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we're doing now. But we're looking at it very seriously because you can't do that. - President Donald J. Trump

    Well... other than a promise of a laundry list of things paid by the wealthy, i.e. “free” for them, to rally that base just as Sanders did for the 2016 run.
    Yup. It's kind of funny to watch the MSM go after Biden, not because he is the front runner, but because the MSM's agenda is further to the left. Biden has to go.

    I won't be watching but will rely on the sound bites coming out. I'm also interested in Hickenlooper and a few others who are to the right of Biden. I hope they do well but Surey here wants these people to bleed. If a moderate breaks out and looks like a real possibility then I'll start paying more attention. Not likely to happen.

    Yup. Most of the MSM are attacking Biden, not because he is the front runner but because they have an agenda more to the left of Biden and will further that agenda anyway possible.

    You may want to check out Gov. Bullock holding a town hall in your state on night two.

    Other than that, these debates should have started no earlier than August, when Congress is out of session.

    The left's evidence has always been nothing but worthless goo.

    It's amazing how blind they are to this.

    They, like the Saudi's, constantly do so but Trump can simply blow it off (react "proportionally", let him tell you) in order to stay in power. It's not like our NATO allies would demand Trump start a new ME war to join us in. Of course, the Chinese or Russians would love to see us (and our allies) spend loads of treasure on a new endless chapter of ME "nation building" while they enrich themselves coming to the aid of our oil rich "victims".

    2/3 of the primaries and caucuses will be over by the end of March. That locked it up early for trump since most gop Ps/Cs are winner take all and winner take most delegates.

    Since all DEM Ps/Cs have a proportional allotment, I’m seeing a contested convention in Milwaukee. We may also see a repeat of Chicago 1968, with or without the violence, with so much animus remaining in the party.

    Yep, those sent from the party for a bigger federal government and those sent from the party for a huge federal government. Heads - they win more power, tails - you lose more power.
