Nominate Gil if you like... I don't care. Clinton's email scandal even if true pales in comparison to lying about WMD's, Torture, the stock market crash, Interfering with the Bush/Gore vote, Disenfranchising voters today, Iran/Contra, . . .

Just to name a few...

When members of the Bush administration get indited on war crimes I'll worry about Clinton's emails

Again... nominate whoever... I'm voting purely to ensure the SCOTUS is aligned properly.

That's an important factor...though anyone that isn't "rabidly right" will be blocked by the Republican Congress...they have that in their sights and won't care WHO they put in the WH as long as it's a Republican....

I guess you and I are saying the same thing, though...anyone BUT a Republican.

Bernie and Trump take New Hampshire.....(eyeroll)

46183. judithathome - 2/10/2016 4:08:20 AM

Oh wow...Kasich beat out Cruz for second on the Republican side!! You go, guy!

46184. iiibbb - 2/10/2016 4:42:50 AM

I like Kasich... unfortunately I can't vote for him the balance of powers the way they are.

46185. arkymalarky - 2/10/2016 6:23:40 AM

Yeah, I really like kasich a lot. I love what Bernie has to say, even though I'm going to vote for Hillary.

46186. arkymalarky - 2/10/2016 6:26:11 AM

by the way, 3i's 46180 nailed it!

46187. judithathome - 2/10/2016 9:28:29 PM

The only thing I cringe at with Kasich is that he has a "tell"...a facial tick that happens when he's rattled. It's very noticable and would certainly be noticed by foreign leaders if he got in over his head with them.

This is the McCain I voted for in 1999

46189. judithathome - 2/10/2016 11:21:11 PM

Carly Fiorina is out...I guess her 17 votes will go somewhere else.

And even though it's being debated whether or not this is accurate, Chris Christie may be out, too.

46190. judithathome - 2/11/2016 12:10:21 AM

Official...he is.

46191. arkymalarky - 2/12/2016 5:20:48 AM

Who in the world picked Hillary's outfit? Star Trek needs to look for a missing costume.

46192. winstonsmith - 2/13/2016 2:55:29 AM

One thought that comes to mind for me WRT Hillary's email server is that I imagine plenty of folks in the DOS, FBI, CIA, etc knew about it and apparently did little or nothing?

If all those agencies knew, and essentially gave her tacit approval by doing nothing, then apparently they were not very worried about it and, incidentally, could be culpable if it turned out to be some kind of actionable offense. (so maybe they will not want to open that can of worms too far)

For my self, it seems like a bad idea that she used it but it seems doubtful that anything would ever come of it other than whatever hay partisans can make of it.

46193. judithathome - 2/13/2016 11:18:08 PM

I mentioned something similar last week in post # 46178.

Should everyone sending emails to her be brought up before a Congressional panel, too?

46194. iiibbb - 2/14/2016 12:12:27 AM

Scalia is dead

46195. judithathome - 2/14/2016 12:14:52 AM

Breaking News!!!

Antonin Scalia has just died. LINK

46196. judithathome - 2/14/2016 12:15:13 AM

Ooops...crosspost!

46197. winstonsmith - 2/14/2016 12:23:41 AM

Oh man, as if this presidential election cycle wasn't already overheated. This is going to be a dreadful, nasty, fight.

46198. winstonsmith - 2/14/2016 12:30:48 AM

Yes, Judith, I agree, plenty of people must have seen what address they were sending to and had been aware. I think Clinton even stated long ago that agencies had been notified that she was using it.

46199. arkymalarky - 2/14/2016 1:04:50 AM

Hm. Wow. Scalia is dead.
