re: Could a Black Republican ever win Louisiana or the US Presidency? - maine82

re: Michelle Bachman possibly entering Minnesota senate race - maine82
Will be tough in this environment. Republicans will probably lose the House in 2018 and holding the Senate will probably be tougher than it appears. Bachmann is a great choice if we want to lose by 30 points. The best option is probably Coleman or Tim Pawlenty....

re: Census Bureau releases state population changes during 2016-2017 - maine82
It's frankly amazing how Texas, Georgia, Florida and the Carolinas have been able to pull their bleep together and us and Mississippi still lag behind. As for Idaho, 1/4 of its population is Mormon. They create a lot of children....

re: Clinton Should Run for Cotton’s Senate Seat - maine82
Chelsea would be perfect for Westchester County. Or the NY-10 or NY-14 seats based in Manhattan when they open up, which should be relatively soon since both Members are in their 70s. But Arkansas? She'd be laughed out of Little Rock....

re: Rank The Presidents In Your Lifetime - maine82
[quote]But we've gotten progressively worse.[/quote] And part of this by the way is we completely discount experience. Reagan was a 2-term Governor and knew how to communicate. H.W. Bush was not only VP but served in Congress, ran a large federal bureaucracy (CIA) and had been a diplomat. ...

re: Buckingham Palace: Staff summoned to emergency meeting on Elizabeth II and Phillip - maine82
Ladbrokes in London stopped taking bets a few days ago on when Prince Harry and his girlfriend would get engaged. The rumors are hot that an announcement is soon. It could be something directly related to the Queen or Prince Philip but it would be very coincidental if both things were happening ...

re: If the Moore allegations were true - maine82
And also, it may just be that a person with whom you ideologically sympathize is guilty. Everyone is fallible. And if you read the history, a lot of people didn't want to believe David Duke was a racist in 1990 and 1991, because they were too wrapped up emotionally in his success. "He's chang...
