Well that was an interesting race. The conservative primaries were insane and they trotted out all their old school crazy and we all laughed at their barely cloaked bigotry and gaffes and lip service crankery. eventually of course the backers pushed through the vaguely least wingnutty one that had a ghost of a chance at winning. But its not like they were going to bet Hillary "snoozer" Clinton who breezed right through the comparatively most boringest primary. Though those were some super weird general election shenanigans as they tried to plant FUD on her like always. I like how yet again Nate silver called it but conservatives were in denial. See you all in 2020

Who does Nate Silver predict will win the Republican primaries?

I'm pretty sure its way too soon for that; his models require a lot of polls.

Anyone there's no contest in my mind who to mentally support when it comes to the issues; between the USSC nominations, the Iran nuclear deal, healthcare, entitlements, foreign policy, etc; there's not a single reason for me to remotely consider wanting a Republican candidate over Hillary.

Whenever the Republicans occasionally support something sane my response is usually "stopped clock is right twice a day" which annoys my conservative thread but its true. Their ideology outside of a few minor and obviously trivial technology related issues is so backwards, reactionary, and regressive that I'd have to be a maddeningly blind narrow minded single issue voter for that ONE issue to outweigh the harm to millions of people.

Mental hypothetical support, but my friend is half American and can technically vote. So its relevant in our discussions.

And Hillary, while more Hawkish than Obama, is going to be less Hawkish than the GOP.

the republican playbook will respond to Hilary's generally hawkish centrism with the proclamation that it is, as anything the Democratic Party does or is, the most far left liberal thing ever.

The resultant revisionary declarations will shift how they define the nebulous "middle" and more importantly shift how far out their definitions and declarations of conservatism are.

Which may be super hilarious, so.
