And We're Off!

Iowans are now caucusing! Just a friendly reminder to my fellow Democrats that are lucky to have two front-runners who would each make a excellent nominee and, I think, a strong President. There are perfectly good reasons to support one over the other. But there is no reason to threaten the apocalypse if your preferred candidate ends up losing.

As for the Republicans, well, your options range from "fine" to "catastrophic", and so far the latter seems to be running away with it. So, um, best of luck with that.

I don't see how Hillary could make a good president, other than "FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT YAAAAAAY!!!". Congress and the media are considerably less terrified of her than they are of Bernie, and I find that to be very telling. It means Bernie has a real shot at changing things, whereas with Hillary we can expect more of the same.
