    Bernie all the way! He's no Socialist, but he's far better than any of the rest.

  4. No, doubt that mr.Sanders is something unusual for the American polical Circus. He doesn't pretend to be a strongman, he is not a clown. He is not playing Copperfield. He would be the most remarkable president for decades.
    As for mr.Putin then he likely prefers Trump. He would find common language with him, reach agreements acceptable for both sides. Mr.Putin likes Berluskoni type politicians.

  5. When Dubya was running they used to say he was the sort of guy you could imagine sharing a beer with. Same was true with Bill Clinton. Lousy way to pick a President but with this lot you'd move to the other end of the bar.

    Dyed orange Trump is a lazy tub thumper, Clinton is an incompetent corporate drone, so's Rubio, Jeb stinks of failure, Bernie probably smells of wee. Creepy Ted Cruz is by far the smartest of them but probably plays with himself nights.

    They all sound like perfect candidates for POTUS.

  7. It's hard to understand why a country with 350 million people only have two political parties. Both bought and sold by Wall St too.

  8. You asked a question and answered it.
    If tomorrow the parties unite and form one super party then essentially nothing would be changed.
    Michael Bloomberg seriously considering White House bid - CNNPolitics.com
    By the way
    A Democrat before seeking elective office, Bloomberg switched his party registration in 2001 to run for mayor as a Republican. Bloomberg won a second term in 2005 and left the Republican Party two years later. He campaigned to change the city's term limits law and was elected to his third term in 2009 as an independent candidate on the Republican ballot line.
    Republican , Democrat or Independent oligarch - does it matter?
     
  9. No charge
     
  10. Not so much Trump and Saunders have outlandish policies it is more to do with everyone being hacked off with the run of the mill also rans......

    If Trump takes a couple more States he will become unstoppable.
     
  11. Jed Bartlet or Morgan Freeman

    What?
     
  12. You mean Russia and you are right and not right at the same time.
    The distance between Putin's United Russia and the Communist party (that has a lot of legislators in the Duma) is huge. On many points their positions are absolutely different - on social issues, privatization/nationalization, policy toward oligarchs and big business, education, health care. I always vote for Communists because Putin's party of Crooks and Thieves is a 'party' rather by name. They are gang of corruptioners.
    However, essentially you are right. The Communists have no chanses to get a majority. Their leader 'Comrade Zyuganov' is Putin's the best buddy and in fact rather plays role of 'fierce oppositioner'. Other parties represented in the Parliament are just Putin's puppet ones. Anti-Putin liberal opposition parties are not popular in Russia (for many reasons) and are unable to get 5% during elections (electoral threshold).
    In fact ruling elite in Russia monopolised power ... as in many other countries.
