Still haven't actually shown how accusing people of using sexism to absolve Hillary of all criticism isn't a giant strawman, but I guess you aren't going to so there isn't any in continuing

The first point is a valid criticism. There is certainly room to bring up people like Warren to counter the argument that Clinton's gender makes it impossible for her to be as progressive. But argue...

Yeah I'm still not seeing where anyone is trying to use Hillary's gender to shield her from all accountability.

You posted an article complaining about people who used cries of sexism to shield Hillary from any accountability.

I said that was a straw man, because it is

you can't just say its not

Not all Sanders supporters are Berniebros, but if you haven't had the pleasure to meet them consider yourself lucky. There are a lot of Sanders supporters on the internet who spend most of their time...

Not sure your point. Are you actually suggesting that sexism is the only reason why anyone would vote for Sanders over Hillary, or are you saying that person is implying it? Because neither of those...

You obviously don't replace them with the same jobs, but can't you create more jobs that can't be outsourced for whatever reason? Just for starters, our infrastructure is in disarray and our schools...

I don't really know much about the issue. But I don't see how refusing to trade with other nations is a good idea. Even if that means some jobs go overseas, that should just mean we create more jobs...

If a republican said the same things Sanders did about trade, wouldn't they get blasted for being xenophobic?

Her definition of progressive is different than mine, but she is doing a really good job substituting her own...

jeb might last to SC. Kasich is riding on a good showing on NH and I don't see him getting higher than 4th which won't be enough for him.

Christie I don't see going anywhere, but figure he doesn't...

So when does everyone else bow out?

My guesses:

Fiorina: Within the next couple of days
Christie: After NH
Kasich: After NH
Jeb!: After NH
Carson: After SC
Trump: After Super Tuesday

3 million people in Iowa

~300,000 turned out to the caucuses

So that is one in ten. Even if you bump the number of caucus goers up to 400,000 and say there are just 2 million eligible voters......

Seems to be 12 precincts left to report. Clinton still has a four state equivalent delegate lead. But haven't seen any updates for a while now. Doubt an actual "winner" will be declared for a few...

1) It was a county delegate. so not even a state delegate (whatever that means)

2) How else would you break a tie?
