    There does not appear to be any evidence that he suspected she was a minor, and she is in her twenties.

    This does not mean he acted appropriately.
  2. If you're correct, you're going to have major...

    If you're correct, you're going to have major bragging rights. Most current polls show Pennsylvania, along with Florida, as one of Trump's best swing states, at least when compared to Arizona,...
  3. If the argument is that "Gore won Florida, flat...

    If the argument is that "Gore won Florida, flat out, full stop" or that Dudya won "a stolen election" it matters whether the Supreme Court made the wrong call, and whether their intervention changed...

    Hagel was also one of Obama's Secretaries of Defense. I don't think he was considered for CIA chief.

    David Petraeus was generally considered a Republican, and served as CIA director.

    Jon...

    At this point for Trump to win, something very big has to break very soon, or there has to be some kind of systemic polling error. These are possible but unlikely.
  6. I know we've argued about this in the past, but...

    I know we've argued about this in the past, but the reviews suggest that the strategy the Gore campaign pursued would not have come up with enough votes.

    There was an interesting explanation on why the media may exaggerate the significance of "shy Trump voters." Many journalists hang out in social circles where supporting Trump is just not considered...

    The 2000 election wasn't stolen. The electoral college was the established rules.

    It's also not immediately clear that if we did away with the electoral college that the candidates who won that...
  9. It was an opportunity for you guys to say...

    It was an opportunity for you guys to say something positive about someone who most of us are voting for, who will likely be elected President in two weeks.



    It's not going to come to that.

    I understand that Joe Biden wasn't the first choice for many of the people here, but what do you guys think of his general election campaign? Is he exceeding expectations from when it became clear he...

    This is a fair point on some controversies.

    People do want some level of predictability, and controversial policies can be ingrained once people are dependent on them or of the possibility. For...

    We'll see.

    It's possible Democrats will dominate for some time. There is the potential advantage that if a Democrat wins in 2024, that candidate (probably Harris) will have the benefit of running...
  13. The problem with the Clarence Thomas and...

    The problem with the Clarence Thomas and Kavanaugh hearings wasn't about Democrats taking allegations seriously, but about how they went about it. For example, both allegations came very late in the...
  14. I think a big chunk of the anti-Tony sentiment...

    I think a big chunk of the anti-Tony sentiment came from the character's depiction in the Civil War spinoffs, rather than the actual mini-series which was more even-handed. Part of it is that there...

    Parties tend to bounce back from major defeats.

    Richard Nixon wins 49 states in 1972, and a Democrat wins the next presidential election.

    Obama becomes the second Democrat since LBJ to win a...
  16. If you watch the video he covers his bases, and...

    If you watch the video he covers his bases, and is careful about concrete allegations. This kind of speculation is generally protected. Otherwise, a lot of people here would be in significant...

    It's easier to show an example of something than an absence of it.

    If you see a contradiction, you can point it out. But if I point out concepts that aren't contradictory, it's always possible...

    Yeah, it was a pretty good time for art.

    1) As a Republican, I'm more likely to agree with the policy goals of Republicans than Democrats. I disagree with much of what the Obama administration did: The Iran Nuclear Deal, The Department of...
  20. I'd like to see more of an effort at passing...

    I'd like to see more of an effort at passing major legislation that both sides can agree on. There will be some party line stuff, but that shouldn't be all of the legislation.

    For example, I think...
  21. It is a major goal of politicians that the leader...

    It is a major goal of politicians that the leader of the other party does not succeed, mainly because there are going to be some significant policy differences. Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer did not...

    San Diego is overhauling their system of grading in order to fight racism. Among the changes, students will no longer be penalized for handing in late work.

    For many people here, their main problem with Trump is that he's a Republican. Everything else is extra. My problems with Trump are the things that distinguish him from McCain and Romney, two people...
