Hopefully the damage Trump does is irreversible and America has to reboot its entire political system. Maybe it will even be a democracy this time.
Same, to be honest.

Mainly, I doubt that most Sanders supporters would vote Clinton, and vice-verse.

Or, and I know this is a strange concept, we could hope and try to make things work better instead of rooting for it to burn to the ground first.

Right, Sanders supporters would either vote Trump or not vote at all rather than vote for the candidate that aligns closest to their top choice.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I put my money on most Sanders supporters voting third party at that point, tbh. Like, I could see this entire race rebalancing the election pattern if Hillary and Bush were the actual bipartisan candidates. That's just like, my opinion, tho, man.

I am not so sure about that. I may not be a big Clinton fan. But I would choice the lesser evil. And I really think that Sanders him self would be behind you picking the lesser of two evils.

Of course the whole situation could spiral all out of control. Where we get 4th candidate or something breaking up the unity of both major parties. But who knows.

Having that many major candidates would be something the US hasn't seen since before the Civil War.  It would be interesting, but very messy.

Sanders will obviously win, you guys are failing to count all the votes from the 15 year old demographic.

If he became president he would be the oldest man to become president.

Well Hillary is about that age in lizard-person years.

When anyone objectionable is speaking or on screen, take a drink.

If Trump is shown on screen, heard in audio form or alluded to in shadow theatre, finish your drink.

Did the CNN stream just start breaking for anyone else? It's skipping all over the place for me.
