The field has dropped to just 2 people now, with all the others dropping out of the Democratic race. They were all so nice in the beginning, and last debates got a little testy.  "Anyone blue, no matter who", died on the vine when Bloomberg jumped in, and all the multimillionaires told you the Billionaires could not be trusted. $500M + Bloomberg spent of his own money, chastised for it, while all the rest of them blew hundreds of millions of everyone else's money. Bernie didn't  spend a dime out of his pocket.  All of them preach global warming jumping on to private jets.  Promises, promises, promises from free school, medical, even give you all $1000 a month forever, and the top 1% will pay for all of it. Sound too good to be true?  

Now the nasty is even getting worse, as Bernie started right in on Joe, with a laundry list of what Joe will have to explain,  wagging his finger and waving his arm, Bernie has to explain how all the math will pay for his garbage, and how on earth Congress will pass any of it, as in 30 years almost none of his bills have ever passed. 

Will Joe get away with never explaining Hunter? Will Bernie's legal problems with loans be explained? 

The biggest question is who will run as running mate for either of them?  God forbid Hillary would come back, pretty doubtful since she just badmouthed Bernie. Imagine Bernie running with AOC or Omar who seem to be his big allies, and Warren who just dropped out probably signed on to be his VP.  Will Joe pick Amy?  Both of them probably need to run with a woman VP, so who are any other choices.  Harris? Age is a big factor this time, the old men including Trump are all pushing or will pass 80, so the VP is going to be a major factor.  Who could possibly imagine Bernie, Joe, or Trump dropping dead the day after inauguration, it could be a President Pence, Kobasher, Warren, Harris?  What if AOC or Omar ended up President as Bernie's VP?  That would be scary as hell. Bottom line is the most important factor this time is going to be the VP.  

Going to be interesting. If "anyone blue no matter who" is your idea of a good idea, I hope you really think it over. All the Trump Derangement syndrome could never think of seeing AOC or Omar as President in that worst case scenario.

Looking like 24 is boiling down to 1 as Joe is killing Bernie now in 3 states tonight. 3 more still have not closed polls yet. Bernie in his town hall sounded like a liar spouting off facts and figures about Medicare nobody could believe. Said running mate had to have his beliefs as AOC was shown campaigning. Young voters have not turned out, Bernie is at the end of his road.

If they're attached to a vine they probably aren't blue.  Blueberries grow on bushes.  I prefer my representatives to be standalone, of their own opinion and unpressured with clones.  Not off a production line.  That's what you get though when you go searchin' around the Democrat area, just a number in a series.  Whittled to a single quality, dehumanized.  Passed off like a widget for the party to tap when needed.

Aliens, traitors and mortal enemies would oppose me and attack me but not my loved ones, my family, my countrymen or my allies.
