Bernie's degrading kissing of the Queen's ass was nauseating!

    A disgusting display of self-abasement. At least Cruz had the stones to give Trump the middle finger.

    I wasn't a supporter, but I thought he'd be stronger than this.

    On CNN, a distinct lack of enthusiasm in the after-interviews. Plus, Bernie's speech was as negative as anything Trump ever gave.

    Oh...gotta breathe...it's too much...the hilarity.

    I mean, I thought there'd be nothing funnier than Cruz taking a dump onstage at The Donald Show...now, watching Trumpsters see how party unity is REALLY accomplished... :cool:

    Breathe aaronvan...breathe. You are running the risk of incurring some sort of health incident with all the hysteria.

    Funny comments. "I'm going to Jill Stein". Yeah that'll show them when the progressive policies Bernie negotiated are sitting in a trash bin with a Trump presidency.

    There are a lot of people who just don't seem to think things through further than the end of their toes. Shortsighted to the extreme.

    You think you have problems now with a lack of enough progressive policies in a Clinton presidency? Just wait for a Trump one. He won't be making deals with Bernie to insert more progressive policies into the Republican platform I assure you.

    Bernie was showing class and maturity. Seems like some Bernie Bots can't deal with reality.

    He told Americans to choose gonorrhoea over cholera. Kind of an obvious choice, isn't it? There is a bigger game afoot right now.

    Well the first president Clinton probably gave a lot of women gonorrhoea so it is a fitting anology.

    I'm not sure what's more strange. People thinking he had a chance or the absolute bitchiness of butt-hurt Bernie supporters.

    yeah how dare he try and run for president in the country he lives and who he has served for? who the **** does this guy think he is? he should just get in line and anoint someone with a blindfold. give me a ****ing break

    even if that anointed person was crystal clean, having people run gives the public choice. why do staunch hillary supporters hate democracy? (hehe)

    There is only a 50/50 chance of "us guys" (Trump OR Hillary supporters) hurting in November. You on the other hand have a 100% chance of hurting in November with your go nowhere third party vote. Thus I'd rather be me than you. :p

    Nah, he lives in California. Third party is the right answer as Clinton will win anyway.

    Because you live in a country that uses first past the post. Outside of safe seats you have to vote for the most plausible candidate otherwise you waste your vote.

    So, to be a pragmatist is not preferable to jockeying-for-position in 2020? Got it.

    I think you missed my point. No matter what 3rd party he votes for, they will not win and thus it's a 100% chance of loss for his candidate on election night. Anyone who votes in the two major parties on the other hand, have a rough 50/50 chance of either being happy or unhappy election night.

    this is not a football game. It's not a matter of picking a candidate in order to be happy if he/she wins. You should pick them based on their policies. I can understand voting for HRC in order to avoid Trump, but picking her simply because she will win (hypothetically) doesn't make any democratic sense.

    So, a Presidential election is a vote for who you want to lead the next four years. Thus, the goal is to win. Not just symbolically put your vote on a piece of paper just for the hell of it. The goal and purpose it to actually get across the finish line. A third party candidate will not be doing that. And @jkcerda will not be happy.

    I'd rather not be happy and had my say than not be happy and voted for the lesser of the evils

    I've never supported third party. This election, much like the last one, is a joke. I support any post-elected president that rolls back regulation in the financial sector.

    Well actually, no.

    You should make your choices based on not just the candidates expressed policies; but also a) the chances of that person being elected to office and b) if elected, them being able to have those policies enacted into law or legislative action.

    In a purely "I agree with his policies" model; the optimal choice is to write your own name in on every ballot. I agree 100% with Drew's "policies" - which are to lavish millions of dollars on my personal happiness and security. Of course, the chances of Drew being elected are pretty much zero. So a vote for myself is a wasted one.

    Where people set themselves up for disappointment; is if they base their vote on a candidate's policies and electability - while ignoring the feasibility of those policies becoming law. A candidate who promises to legalize marijuana and round up all the Muslims might, in some districts, be elected. But once in office their plans are highly likely to be thwarted by the realities of a Constitution that makes rounding up of Muslims illegal and a legislature that sees drug legalization somewhat differently.

    You might agree very closely with Bernie Sanders plans for breaking up banks and free college education for all. But a President Sanders would face strong, almost certainly insurmountable, opposition from Congress on those proposals. You might have succeeded in getting Bernie elected - but your goal of broken banks and free college would come to naught.

    Better instead to vote for the Candidate whose policies most closely align with your interests; and yet who has a reasonable chance of getting them enacted.

    Sanders really got up in there. His head was so far up Clintons ass his feet were off the ground.
