Name another Democratic Party Candidate that COULD win the election. I think there's no other choice for the socialists nee Demo's.

Rand Paul is much closer to a Liberatarian than a social-demo. And if wishes were horses, I'd bet Paul v. Trump.
But wait, both of those have the job of Ross Perot. Get that 3rd party in there to steal votes. Now if you REALLY wanna mess up the election have a Trump/Paul ticket against the Donks and the Reps.
Some people need to reimagine their thinking.

First, Hillary said she was not intelligent enough to use 2 emails on one device.

Now, we hear how she could not figure out how to use a fax machine!

It is not like fax machines had not been around 25 years when she was SoS.

Now, remember when Bush41 marveled at a new scanning cash register at a trade show and the media made it out like he never saw one at all? He was just marveling at how far they had come. Will Hillary get the same treatment? Will our lamestream media cover this at all?

Her campaign picked up 45 million last quarter
45 million dollars and the election is way off in the future.

Like it did at this point in 2007?

Educate me, how much did her campaign rake in that quarter 8 years ago?
Was it 45 mil? or a lot less.
Gotta tell you, 45 million is a lot of money, a tremendous amount this early. Besides Trump, is any other Repub candidate raising this much coin last quarter?

Not "a lot less" when you consider fundraising trends.

Quote: Wikipedia



On April 1, 2007, Clinton announced she had raised $26 million during the preceding three months, along with an additional transfer of $10 million from her Senate campaign account to her presidential account.

For the second quarter of 2007, Clinton raised about $27 million, less than Obama's newly set records for the quarter of $32.5 million in donations from 258,000 contributors but more than all other candidates.




I haven't heard of Trump raising any money. The GOP has more candidates and does not have the wealthy donor base Hillary has.

Maybe she can use some of that cash to actually pay her interns?

He didn't have to shop then, most likely had never been in a supermarket or any other retail outlet. I recall it as being just a fact, he'd never seen one. No big deal. A lot of rich people don't mix with rest of the people. They don't have to and don't want to, plus, it isn't safe to.

He had seen and understood scanners. He was looking at an upgraded model that had yet to hit the stores. Chances are he would have shopped pre-VP and even as VP he probably at the least did some photo-ops. It was a hit piece. MSNBC tried the same nonsense with Romney when he said how great the automated ordering at a C-Store was to compare it to government services.

I think a Paul/Sanders ticket would be fun. They're ideologically opposed on economic issues, but could say "we need to come together and fix..." then have a list of stuff, like ending the drug war, breaking up the military industrial complex, restoring the 4th ammendment, etc. It would put a lot of heat on the mainstream candidates, who would have to explain why they would oppose such measures.
