Kasich did exceptionally well, highlighting that there are at least some non racist evangelical tea baggers left in the Republican Party.

Go Bernie, the 20 point spread is what Hillary feared most. I guess a lot of NH women will be going to hell since they didn't vote for Hillary.

Trump's primary win speech was ridiculous, sounded like he was accepting an Oscar and not a paltry 34%.

It's all rigged anyways, Bernie wins by a huge margin and Hillary walks away with almost all the delagates committed to her. Learn about "Super delagates" and you will understand your primary vote is a waste! I work with a NH "Super Delagate".

Not really Jeremy, Having run for political office I have seen firsthand how the system is rigged to keep the outsiders on the outside. If it was not for mass. election laws I would have never been allowed to be part of the local debates. The establishment wanted to keep me out but the law in mass says that if you get enough signatures to get on the ballot they have to include you in the debates. That made the chosen ones in both parties VERY UNHAPPY!

In the end the incumbent spent $11,000 to get a job that pays $1,000 a year. Ask yourself why!?
I spent $15 and only lost by 63 votes thanks to the law letting me in the debates.

I felt the same way when I read about Hillary taking the delegates.  If Bernie had any sense, he make that into an issue on the campaign trail.  So much of his campaign is already based on millions of Americans being shut out of the political process,  I think it bolsters his case.

The electoral college was designed to allow only certain people to elect officials..not the general public.

Do you really think that many americans will vote for a socialist, jewish, democratic candidate ?  not going to happen

People said similar things about Obama. Plus he was both a Socialist and a Nazi Muslim  :o

To tell you the truth, I think NH was only a speed bump for Hillary.  I'm pretty sure she leads by ten points or more in most of the states set to primary within the next month or so.

The above may be  true but polls are not actual outcomes as one pundit noted on VPR (I think she was from SC) she had received upward of 3 or more poll calls a day and was having her daughter answer them while other coworkers had yet to see one. 4 years ago I answered one poll call when I had a landline and from that day on I received poll calls about every Podunk session at 9am, 12:30, 4, and 6pm.

I wonder with Bernies win if Hillary will keep with the promise of not running "attack" ads.

Super delegates I doubt will vote heavily outside the popular vote, but if the popular vote is close in % there's no hope for Bernie, shit Shumlin and Leahy early on endorsed Hillary. It's possible with a strong showing on Super Tuesday Shumlin could change his mind (some of his political agendas are closer to Bernie's) but me thinks Leahy will stick regardless with Hillary. Regardless, I think the DNC is going to get heavily restructured in the upcoming years.

BTW, I'm still bitter about Dean and the lack of support from the DNC back when he ran. I was so pissed when they offered and he took the chair position, it basically destroyed any hope for him becoming President in future elections. IMO If they but a bit more energy towards his outsider campaign Bush may have still won a first term but he certainly would have lost a second term.

I think that both Republicans and Democrats are in denial about what the people want which is why Bernie and Trump are so popular. If either party had even a small clue both Bernie and Donald would be gone by now.

Both "parties" (actually the left and right side of the Corporate party) DO have a clue, it is "Corporations First"

Trump and Bernie, despite their differences, are both the "Anything but the status quo" candidates.   Funny how the corporate media never points out that they are the only two candidates against the wonderful corprate-friendly Pacific Free Trade Bend Over pact that everyone seems to want to stick up our asses.  I'm sure it will make things better, look at all the great jobs NAFTA and GATT created!

I don't know where Trump is coming from and surely don't trust him.

I am also about as far as can be from a socialist, but I will be voting for Bernie next Tuesday as he actually seems like an honest guy.  In this election, that makes him the only one as far as I can tell.

I wouldn't vote for Hillary for town dog catcher.
