New Jersey Governor Chris Christie came out swinging in Saturday night's Republican debate on ABC. Florida Senator Marco Rubio looked like he was on ...
This debate was not so much about winners and also-rans as it was about the one clear loser: Marco Rubio. If Rubio had not shown so much promise earlier in the campaign, the loss would seem less momentous.
Here are some random but real hints: now that's using social lamestream media; the Alibaba effect has worn off; she got Mitt's help to be in the next debate; and they're trying to heal a 1,000-year-old rift.
Jeb gives one the impression that he feels the presidency is a legacy, like getting into Yale or making the varsity soccer team as a high-school freshman because of daddy's business connections. Unfortunately for him, the base of the party he is running to lead grew up with people like that, and they hate them.

Regardless of your political views, the outcome of the Democratic nomination will create a very interesting situation either way. If Sanders, an older, grumpier, Independent candidate who openly identifies as a socialist, wins the nomination over a well-seasoned, well-known, well-connected, non-socialist candidate such as Clinton, it will easily be considered one of the greatest upsets in our political history. If Clinton wins the nomination, she could potentially be the first presidential nominee to be indicted while running for office.
Donald Trump, the New York billionaire seeking the Republican nomination for president, achieved something monumental in Monday night's Iowa caucuses. He became the very thing he most despises: a loser.
