Yes she was. Without those "magic" coin tosses, she would have lost in a landslide.

Everyone but the most loyal naive Clinton lover would admit this. She "won" by several coin tosses that magically all fell her way. I wouldn't brag about that too loudly.

The same argument you make was said in Vermont. He absolutely crushed the richest man in Vermont who flooded the airwaves with attack ads. A straight shooter who has a 40 year track record of fighting for the working class has excellent cross-over appeal. Reports in NH show that Sanders and Trump campaign workers were fighting tooth and nail to appeal to the same voters.

It was a complete and humbling defeat: Sanders beat Clinton among all demographic groups – including all women, a remarkable rebuke eight years after she “found her voice” by tearing up at New Hampshire diner.

Maybe if all you guys get together, write a letter, the Dnc will put an asterisk next to the delegates she won.

The fact is there are more democrats than republicans, the game has always been about hoping you dont a have strong turnout, the rhetoric on the gop primary guarantees a strong turnout, so unless Bernie somehow manages to convince minorities to vote for him or Hillary gets indicted the gop already lost.

I'm sure that Democrats couldn't care less what a right-winger's opinion on their selection process is.....change your party affiliation and maybe they'll give your comments their attention.

Wishful thinking on your part. The fact is, after 8 years of Obama, many middle of the road dems are just as sick and tired of liberals running the country as republicans are. Most are hard working middle class people who want more and better jobs and to be able to pay their bills. The don't love illegal aliens and want ISIS defeated. The way I see it, liberals are in big trouble thanks to the policies of Obama which Hillary has already promised to continue and expand. Good luck! You also need to get out of your liberal bubble and face reality.

Tell ya what, boys...

Keep pinning your wagons to Rubio, Cruz or whatever also-ran you like. Most likely it'll come down to Hill vs somebody from the GOP. And as you can see, she scares the peewaddle out of your precious RNC. Those are the professional Republicans who draw a paycheck from the GOP and politics is their life. This game isn't even halfway through the 1st quarter yet.

I kinda get the impression that you two haven't been through many presidential campaigns.

9 months is a long time in politics.

See ya in November.

RealClearPolitics - Election 2016 - General Election: Rubio vs. Clinton
So the only repub I know of who is polling ahead of her, and Chris Christie goes after him like no one's business, thus killing his momentum and affecting NH results.
And who can forget the hug in 2012 than many believe helped Obama.
Sometimes I have to wonder, is Christie actually a democrat?

Perhaps your perception of the RNC is flawed? We have yet to see "republicans" rally around a candidate, as there is no nominee at this time. I would offer that the RNC would probably prefer Hillary in the White House before Trump.

Both Bernie and Hillary are fairly poor candidates with TONS of baggage. Both would be easy marks in the debates and would make any republican look good. However, one must appreciate that we have many, many idiots in the US, so I would not dismiss any democrat winning, simply because they are a democrat.

If one was to "fear" anyone it would be Biden. Despite his candidacy being essentially a third term for Obama, he would be a much better candidate and does not have the baggage of either Hillary or Sanders. Gore would be terrible, as he appears a lunatic with his AGW agenda.

Will the dems "draft" another candidate? I think the dems are beginning to appreciate how conservatives felt when McCain was the republican candidate.
