It would look a little something like this.
Both sides now have a two-person race, each with an establishment candidate and an outsider. On the left, it's Hillary Clinton vs. Bernie Sanders. On the right, it's Marco Rubio vs. Donald Trump. Cruz's win, while it did shake things up, is a distraction.
With the Iowa caucuses upon us, it seems like every Republican tramping through the snow claims to be a Bible-believing, God-fearing, Jesus-loving Christian. Some trot out their parents; others offer personal conversion stories. Some defend persecuted Christians; others explain their policies in Biblical terms. It's a fruitless exercise.
Sifting through a presidential candidate's website is one of the more accessible ways to delve into the minds of those running to be the leader of the United States. But some of their websites don't dive very deep into how they plan to address the current issues facing society. Here, 20-year-old me will dig into how the top ten Republican candidates' websites confront the issues and provide them a letter grade based on their detail and variety.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Tuesday at the 10th annual Iowa Renewable Fuels conference that he supports the notion to maintain the standard, a declaration that must have boded well with many citizens of a state with 41 corn ethanol plants in attendance.
Most people that know of King know of his famed "I Have a Dream" speech, but what of his other speeches? If we really want to honor King's legacy it would be best to remember everything that he said and not pick and choose the parts of his legacy that are most convenient for us.
No one should treat the call to evacuate as something simple or obvious. Experienced evacuation volunteers can all agree that even in the best of circumstances, an evacuation is a living nightmare.
Only in the minds of gun enthusiasts is an action that is "legally meaningless" construed as the president repealing the second amendment. The president is not coming to take your guns.
Everyone else's chances for victory almost require Trump's support in the polls to suffer serious damage. If nobody else manages to break into the front rank, then Trump is the best-positioned candidate to win the nomination -- hands down.
This political season has been dominated by dangerous anti-LGBTQ and other divisive rhetoric that is capitalizing on people's fear and fueling discriminatory attitudes. It's time to call it out.
In a surprising move this holiday season, Our Father, which normally art in heaven, descended down to earth yesterday and added His Almighty voice to the call for gun control. Dressed in a pure white suit, and looking not unlike Morgan Freeman in Bruce Almighty, God appeared on Fox News and said:
It may be about Mexicans yesterday. Gays today. Muslims tomorrow. But as the Reverend Niemoller assured us, each of our days will come. If we do not stand together against hate, we can each die individually as its accomplices.

Mike Huckabee would be a terrible president. Just look at his nearly 11 years as governor of Arkansas. Mike Huckabee is bad for the Republican Party. I stuck my neck out four years ago as the first openly gay candidate to ever run for president and I ran as a Republican.
It is time for those who share this faulty outlook to finally acknowledge that the party of Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan has become the party of Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Fox News. It is time for them to leave the GOP.
It's been a month since I last took a look at the Republican presidential horserace, and there have been a number of dramatic developments in the meantime. So it's time once again to cast an eye over the Republican field.
