When your name is "Flake" and you were born in "Snowflake", and your destiny is to manage a star, a little Senate campaign is nothing.

I feel like Flake just must not care. He knows what his numbers are and still he stands against Trump. As he should. Perhaps he has a Plan B in mind.

Hard to win a race with a investigations and legal troubles surrounding you. Just ask Hillary Clinton.

I think we should have term limits. Since must of these aging politicians have been in office forever like Pelosi and McCain. One term and run for something else after you finish your term. Let someone else get a shot.

What other career but politics can someone get paid to try to acquire a different job.

Wonder how many of the crowd that praised the pardon because the old guy would never make it in prison are willing to vote for him, and expect him to do anything resembling a good job for them.

Yes, it's early. But, those multi-term Republican Senators who live in the DC bubble which includes the media better snap out of it or start job hunting.
Trump isn't going to win a second term. Don't any of you get tired of the me, me, me rallies he does in red states. Did you even see his speech in Texas. It was all about him lol

I cannot remember a President who was not all about me, me and me, again. As an example check out the first person usage in President Obama's farewell address. Or even some of President George W. Bush's addresses. Who else would put up with abuse a President receives, but an egotist?

I enjoy the rallies more than anything. It's what I miss most from campaign season. Trump always says, "We." He even has a hand gesture that goes with it. He makes a circle with his finger.

I think 12 years at any one spot is reasonable. 2 senate terms, 6 house terms, 3 term governor. Too be honest that is actually generous. I think simply capping consecutive terms would do- 2 in senate, 3 to 6 in house, 2 in governorships. Sometimes there really is someone with that much skill. But usually they simply become entrenched... like a bug on a fly strip. You can't remove them without things getting very ugly.


I think Flake is going to be knocked out in the primary but would win a general.
