What Iowa Means for Sanders

Liberals feel obligated to vote for Hillary, for a variety of reasons. Chief among them are her perceived electability advantage over Sanders, the fact that she's a woman, and her length of service in politics. But in their heart of hearts most of them would prefer to vote for Sanders. The longer Sanders sticks around and remains viable, the more they'll listen to their hearts. Everyone seems to think Sanders can't win, but no one thought Obama could, either.

Of course, Sanders isn't a hip, young, fresh-faced newcomer either.

Liberals for Trump

Listening to a group of liberals discussing the Iowa caucuses yesterday at lunch, the conversation went something like this:

Man, that Trump guy is nuts.

Yeah, good thing he lost the Iowa caucus. He's the loser now! Hahaha!

Sure, but I don't know if he'd be so bad. He just wants to be President as a feather in his cap. No one thinks he'd really do what he says he'll do.

True, true. He wouldn't be so bad. Now that Cruz guy, he really scares me.

Whew! You aren't kidding.

Hopefully we can put paid to any notion that Trump is a conservative at this point.
