The dems will be debating tonight. I swear, it's as if these guys don't want folks watching their debate. They have these democratic debates at the strangest times.
Anyway, I hope to see a spirited debate between Hillary and Bernie. (Sorry Martin, you have zero chance of winning this thing.) Apparently a lot of folks have been "feeling the Bern" ,and he is closing on Hillary. Maybe he will cut his Mr. Nice Guy act on the stage tonight. If he doesn't Hillary will chew him up and spit him out like she did a certain republican Benghazi panel.
The general consensus is that Bernie is a Socialist and therefore cannot be elected president of these divided states of America. Not! Let me say, as someone who should know, Bernie Sanders is not a Socialist. But I get it, he might be the closest thing to that particular political ideology on the American political scene these days.
Hillary, of course, is far from a Socialist. Hillary, I think it's safe to say, is someone who is a center/right politician when it comes to foreign policy and economics.
She is hated by the right, not really loved by the left, but is Bill's wife and has been in the public eye long enough for most of us to conclude that she is competent enough to hold the job as president.
I have some advice for Bernie, though, if you really want to beat Hillary you are going to have to find a way to get a large percentage of the black vote. Hillary, for now, has the Negro vote on lock, but that could change. Quite a few black folks feel like Katt did in this skit. "Wait a minute, b****, we don't know you like that; we liked your husband"
For now, though, it's still Hillary's race to lose. She is a professional politician so I don't expect her to self-destruct. Unless the FBI comes knocking on her door before the democratic primary vote, Hillary should come out on top.
Here is hoping that unlike those other folks we will get some answers tonight from the dems about how to solve some of the problems we have in this country, and that they will not just demagogue the other guys and their politics. I swear that when I listened to the republicans I thought Barack Obama was going to be on the ballot again in 2016.
It's less than 20 minutes before the start of the democratic debate. I am going to try and watch, but I am guessing that I will be sleeping before the second commercial break.
As I was with the republicans, I will keep an open mind. Hopefully between Martin, Bernie, and Hillary, there will be enough there to keep me up long enough to give me something to think about.
