    The POTUS' SCOTUS pick owes A LOT of money and has a lot of debt (owing more than assets on hand).

    Seems he lacks ... judgement.

    On another note, when Huckabee-Sanders was asked about General Kelly looking pissed the whole time during the NATO breakfast she said ... "he was displeased because he was expecting a full breakfast and there were only pastries and cheese."

    CNN still doesn't get it. Objectivity does not mean that you can't express an opinion. Objectivity means looking for the facts, and if you find that one side argues in good faith, based on facts, and the other side argues based on bullshit, and changes their argument whenever they're called out on their bullshit, it is not a violation of objectivity to point out the bullshit. It's not even a violation of objectivity to use the word, "bullshit."

    Why does nobody ever seem to complain about how undemocratic Caucuses are?

    "We the people" actually has nothing to do with what candidate each Party puts forth for the General Election. Would you have asked in 2006 that the Connecticut for Lieberman Party hold a Primary to determine who their candidate was going to be? At any rate, how political Parties conduct their Primaries are not held to the same rules as General Elections. As undemocratic as it seems, every Party is basically allowed to choose from a wide variety of methods to pick their candidate, so long as it maintains the appearance of impartiality (note - Party leadership revealing their biases does not legally constitute favoritism in this process).

    I'm surprised Trump hasn't said nice things about the dictators of Laos, Myanmar, and Eritrea yet.

    Yes, I despised Lieberman, because I knew what he stood for.

    I don't like Caucuses much either. To me when you have a Primary, you open the primary to all available voters in the state in your party, and to independents as they are the middle of the voter pool.
    Republican or Democrat, you only lock out the people in direct opposition to your party.

    Party leaders hold the primaries among the viable candidates, then the people choose. The party supports the cost of the primaries, and keep the rules even keel state to state.

    Because to a lot of people there is. Some would say he's not being bigoted, just a jerk. There are some out there that don't think other races can be racist. Unfortunately, in a lot of cases it is some one white, thus painting a picture that someone who wasn't would step in, even though that might not be the case.

    Open primaries are awful. All you're doing is allowing the other side to organize monkey wrenching in closely contested contests. You should have to be a Democrat to vote in the Democratic primary. I don't think suggesting that members of the party be able to select their own candidates is shocking.

    Caucuses are even worse.

    A party-member primary really is the best system. If you want to be able to influence the party, you should need to be a member of it. It's not like its hard to join.

    Given that I posting in your response to your demand for open primaries, I am not shocked by this. xD
