Paul is really the only one on the GOP side that interests me at all, but he's not going to be the nominee.

Paul will turn into a social conservative neocon to appease the base.

I would love an Elizabeth Warren/Cory Booker ticket for the Dem's.

I think Jeb will be the Republican nominee, but supposedly the Koch brothers are going to spend over a billion to buy Scott Walker the nomination.

I love politics, and this is going to be fun.

it's incredibly obvious how the metro area will vote. we're reliably democratic; even the whole combined statistical area went to obama in 2008. the question is, will it be enough to turn the state blue? my thoughts are that we're going to be like north carolina in 2008: we'll be discussed as a swing state for the first time, and be a prize for the winner. expect a lot of campaigning here, more than you've ever seen in this state.

I damn sure hope we don't turn blue. I'm sick of my tax dollars going to idiots that can't make the right decisions in their life. The Republicans are no better. I just dont want Ga to turn into NY, IL, CA, NJ etc with high taxes.

I think Texas will turn purple before Georgia does. The big question is will black voters in GA and NC turn out for Hillary like they did for Obama? I'm thinking they likely won't, but who knows.

If Georgia goes blue I doubt it will go that blue. At least not for a while.

Its pretty clear already who will win Atlanta. A $#!++% politician.

We keep accepting garbage. We keep accepting the system that only allows the current power structure to select our leaders. We keep re-hiring people with a 17% satisfaction rating. We are pretty fn stupid as a group.
