For those turned off by my considering anything other than the issues, I can't help you. And for those who were hoping I'd bash either of these Democrats, well, I can't help you either.

Now that he has declared his candidacy for president, after flirting with one in 2012, it is galling to see him rise in the polls presumably due to his telling it like it is, which a lot of people find refreshing, punctuating his hyperbole with cheap insults hurled at anyone who challenges him.
If you just woke up from a coma and read only the past week's headlines, you'd be wondering when Clinton will be scheduling her concession speech, as she prepares to exit the race. That this is patent nonsense seems to have escaped everyone.
Here we have a claim that Iran will not only make and use nuclear weapons, but will use them against the United States. I'm just going to let the extremeness of that claim sink in.
