    She said no, even though in 2008 she said debates should last up to the end of the primaries. Trump just trumped her, said he would debate Bernie. What a classic move!! She looks weak and afraid. Never seen in modern politics. Ever. Dude is crazy smart.

    History is replete with men and women who thought they were smarter than everyone else, and they inevitably fell victim to their delusions--e.g., Adolf Hitler (killed himself with a gun in his bunker); Benito Mussolini (shot to death and hung upside down on a public square to be abused and insulted),; Richard Nixon (resigned the office of the US presidency because of certainty of impeachment for his role in the Watergate Scandal); and many, many more.

    One desperate loser (Trump) wants to debate the other desperate loser (Sanders).

    Both will be rendered irrelevant in November when a majority of Americans vote Clinton as out next POTUS.

    Trump and Sanders may be many things, but "desperate losers" aren't among them. Both have proven themselves adept campaigners who attract huge numbers of votes and massive numbers of people showing up for their rallies.

    As for Hillary Clinton, it's still not a given conclusion that she will win the nomination, much less the presidency. Yesterday's report on her emails was a stinging rebuke that doesn't look good for her. Who knows what comes next.

    I also don't know how this whole thing will play out and I normally have a fairly accurate read of it way sooner than this. One of the few I didn't call correctly was a decision usurped by the Supremes. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure of my sense of things even in the primary. This one I can not at all call. Too many variable which could still fall in any direction. How bizarre.

    This is a real curious move, I hope not meant to damage the Democrats--I'll still hold out some faith in Bernie--but as a continuing delegate grab to further his agenda even if not getting the nomination. And being not satisfied with how far to the right the left has moved over these decades, I'm okay with that. That this process could hurt--though who knows how this will play as it could very well wind up helping--Hillary, I can't really blame Bernie because that would be not in small part on her by refusing debate she had originally agreed to. And certainly, Bernie is justified, not just by wounded ego be it that or completion of contract (said agreement to debate), but especially in his promise to allow registered voters to participate in the primary without cutting it off--them off--short.

    So this is a real curious move. I don't know yet if it will happen. I imagine it would be a bit of a spectacle so I don't know how seriously taken; yet who knows what could come of it.

    This is less campaign, rather, more kaleidoscope.

    No debate, it turns out. Trump has already backed out -- that didn't take long. icon_rolleyes.gif
    His word means nothing -- he flip-flops on every issue. Who knows what he will really do if elected?

    Trump said from the get-go that he was willing to do a debate with Bernie IF the network carrying the debate (or anyone) were to donate $10 million to a women's health charity. No one ponied up, so Trump isn't going to do it, and I don't blame him. Bernie is the one who needs this debate, NOT Trump.

    He'd do more flip-flopping, naturally. But with far more serious outcomes affecting the entire US, not merely damaging his own already laugable personal "brand".

    Hopefully an indictment so we don't have to face the possibility of this corrupt, power hungry, incompetent whore winning the democratic nomination. If she wins the democratic nomination, than I am through with the democratic party permanently. I will cast my vote for Trump in November because he will be the far safer candidate and the much lesser of two evils.

    If you are a loyal Bernie supporter than I will change my opinions and feelings about you since I also want Bernie to win the democratic nomination. It is either Sanders or Trump, pick your poison bunkicon_exclaim.gif
