        The Democratic Convention looks to be the hotbed of hostility! Sanders with his "I won't quit till I get the nomination," attitude is going to sink their chances this year.
        Wouldn't shock me if the RNC convention ends up being duckies and bunnies and the Democratic Convention ends up being all out war.

          Sanders is fine for now. But with results projecting they way they appear to be...if there's any kind of 'war' at the Dem convention, Bernie will be more about himself and therefore the country would be lucky by not getting him near the presidency. Hillary will be incentivized to work with Bernie to gather his supporters...Bernie will either work to advance his policy causes by working with her or his own cause by working against her.

              The Clintons have had every second of the convention scripted since 2013. It will be fine.

                        But why? They're putting their eggs in the basket of the man who is still behind Marco Rubio to stop Trump. Or are they giving up and getting behind Trump?

                          Republicans unite. Democrats snipe at each other.

                            Cruz also "suspending". Hope against hope.

                                So that's why Cruz brought on Fiorina. He needed someone with experience at laying off huge numbers of staff.
