  1. well this is disappointing, but realistic. He was out of money so couldnt continue. I hope this means he endorses Biden and becomes his VP.
  2. He has the most delegates in the bag, but won’t be enough for nomination. Convention will see everyone else get behind either Biden or (because he’ll give money to people) Bloomberg. I’d be happy with a Biden presidency - in the SC debate he’s the only one that seemed like an adult.
  3. All true, but that, unfortunately, is why he wont ever be able to win the election proper. He's seen as too much of a risk for most americans. We saw that in Australia - all Bill Shortens policies were sound and sensible, but too many people got scared.
  4. This. Not being ageist, but in all liklihood he wont go two terms, and so probably will have no time to actually achieve any of the things he's promising. Would be interesting to know who he's thinking of for a running mate... This.
  5. So are they saying that lacking morals and being a bully is a bad thing??? So hard to know what trump supporters think....
  6. I hope so too. Maybe a lot of people are still hooked on Biden just because he's associated with Obama (although clearly not in Iowa!), so maybe once there is a clear candidate that's not Biden, everyone will get behind them. I don't much about US primaries - do they get the same kind of turn-out as the election proper? Or do a lot of people not really care about primaries and just wait til November? (PS: if some one can actually explain how these 'caucuses' work???)
  7. Pete FTW! I’ve always been team Pete. Not only is he the best looking ( ) but he seems the most inspiring. Reminds me a lot of JFK. so happy he has won Iowa and now hopefully others will see he is a real hope to get rid of trump. but apparently the blacks won’t vote for him. Why?
  8. I need someone to explain all this to me. The Australian government has been saying in the past few days that we are not withdrawing the australian troops that are in iraq because we need to "stay the course" - I can't even remember why we are there (Oh! was it WMDs?), but Im pretty sure the reason was not to have a war with iran? Is Iran supporting ISIS? Is Russia supporting Iran? I'm a bit worried as I have friends that live in Oman, Qatar and UAE, including airline crew that routinely fly over Iran. I hope Iran knows that most people in 'the west' dont want war. (Im not a big fan of sanctions either). What's the solution?
  9. ??? this is for planes, not trains. And rates like this are only averaged over many flights, not a single flight (or train) that is already going anyway. But I accept your general point - if people must travel by plane or train, getting rid of premium classes would mean able to move the same number of people with less flights/carriages, and reduce emissions. Or at least, w should force people to pay for their emissions (so long as the money is used for genuine offsets, which in most cases is not the case). but isn't DB already pretty low emission energy?
  10. Agreed. As an economist, I can say that nearly all of Trumps policies are bad for the economy, so anything going well is because of other factors, and without Trump things would probably be even better.
  11. I also don't understand the Republicans motivation in this. I thought before 2016 they hated him (and he hated them). This could be their chance to get rid of him and get back control of their party. Thought they would love it if Pence took over. I guess theyre only supporting him because the polls still have them in front for the next election. But still, impeachment was never a good idea, as he'll be able to say he was 'cleared' and it was all a witch hunt. Better to just keep the issue hot with the public up to election. They need to make voters think they were duped into voting for Trump in 2016 because of interference and propaganda, and are being duped again in 2020 through Trump's own actions. Nothing changes people's minds more than feeling stupid for thinking something. But now, Trump voters will just feel vindicated, and be angry that the deomcrats tried to undo their vote.
  12. Clinton was impeached not for sexual acts, but for lying under oath about it. And in the end was not removed from office. So, sadly, lying under oath is OK. Now Trump just lies about everything...
