Lefties ignore the fact that the dumocrat vote will be split by those committed to Bernie...unless, as usual, they continue to lack standards and values.

Anyone voting for him should know exactly what they're getting at this point - and let's just say I'm very unimpressed.
Generally, we don't disagree, BUT the agreement/pledge was not legally binding. We all know how important that is in other facets in life. From the beginning, I have said that if he were not chosen as the GOP nominee that he would run 3rd party with the line "What can I say, my supporters love me so how can I let them down by not running?" He would have a point.

It's just like business. Sometimes you put money and effort into something that doesn't pan out. The GOP took him on probably hoping that he would recruit GOP voters to another candidate in the end. It just one side working the other.

I think they are talking about the pledge/agreement where if he doesn't get the nomination not the Constitution, it is Obama that doesn't believe in the Constitution and we are trying desperately to forget about him.

And, your candidate who is truthful would be? Truly, I would like to know. Obviously, not Hillary. Maybe Bernie as I haven't heard him called out on lying. Now, I actually support Ben Carson because I prefer an honest and intelligent candidate and am hard-pressed to find one among the choices. Although a tad bite too religious for me, that characteristic pales in comparison to what characteristics the other candidates demonstrate.

I think they had Trump confused with Obama. Obama is the one that blows off the Constitution. Just some confusion with so many others not adhering to the Constitution.

You ignore the fact that only one Democrat will be on the ballot for President and Bernie will not run as an independent. There is no vote to "split".

Who cares what Trump does. He's a nonentity.

What scathes ME is the fact that *Cruz*s poll numbers are so relatively high! Are there *that* many superstitiious Jezuz-humpers in this country? REALLY?

The establishment also know that there's a likelihood that if that happens, many GOP voters will abandon them forever (since they're so disgusted with the establishment) and that Hillary might win the election.
Yep.

I think Bill Clinton knew this and that's why he urged Trump to run.
