    results? Debates, I don't really contest this, or care too much. It would be fun for us as spectators.

    But Obama is by far the best politician in terms of getting elected that the Democratic Party has had in ages.  Obama is in fact a very good leader at assembling people who know how to analyze data and campaign. That is in fact very impressive to the friends of mine who work in political science for a living. They are in awe of his political abilities.

    Sanders does not have that. He may have a sliiiight touch of the old-school way that Wellstone did. Signs and pavement, basically. But Sanders has never, ever, faced an environment that has made him anywhere near as tough as a Wellstone or Obama in elections.

      Absolutely crushed him. The reason the win was so big was because of his organization and how well he campaigns, but virtually any Dem would have won. The GOP doesn't have an electable candidate that can get past the primary, it's as simple as that.

      If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.
