US election 2016: Trump and Sanders win New Hampshire - BBC News
Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Bernie Sanders have shaken up the US presidential race with decisive victories in the New Hampshire primary.

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who beat mainstream Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, said his victory showed people wanted "real change".

Mr Trump and Senator Sanders have both made rallying against mainstream politics central to their campaigns.
Due to the exceptional status of the USA as the only superpower in the World, Presidential elections are highly important event.
Whom do you prefer to see in the White House?

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

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.

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.

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.
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
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is seriously considering a possible independent presidential run and is looking at making a decision sometime in March
A source close to the former mayor has previously told CNN that Bloomberg would seriously consider entering the race if it appeared Donald Trump or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz would face Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the general election.
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?

It's easy to understand why a country with 145 million people only has effectively one political party. Bought, owned and dictated to by oligarch clans too.
No charge

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.

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.

Someone must have a mountain of dirt to dish on Hillary as we get nearer. There are a lot of unexplained episodes in her past. Primarily among others her best mucker offing himself near the White House allegedly.

I remember hearing a line once, TV or film, can't remember: "......this country is owned and run by six families, old money, don't get the idea that politicians are elected, have any power and run the country. We rent out the White House for four years at a time and they manage the country for us....".

Something like that. Then you have a look at the old money and who is actually who in the US.

It doesn't matter who is voted in, the ones in control always get the President they want.

Tinfoil hat maybe but I'd defy anyone to tell me that there isn't more than a nugget of truth in it.

2016[edit]
Jesus, the campaign slogans. I don't know which overpaid suit dreams this shit up but they ain't channeling Don Draper from Mad Men.

Huckabee's is the only half decent one. Hillary's is just promising Hillaryness. Trump is so lazy he stole Reagan's. Rubio's is name checking a neocon think tank, dissolved in 06 ignominiously. Cruz's is plainly intended to tickle the gonads of the pure mental. Fiorina's would not get you elected head of the local PTA. Bernie borrowed Barry's and has broken it. Jeb[!] nicked Bob the fricking Builder's. Carson's is like a damn Wellness centre. Paul's was crayoned by someone thirteen with braces.
