You know, it’s always sad when guys who should rightfully be best buddies start feuding. Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin. Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble. It just breaks your heart, you know?

The latest bros-turned-foes tragedy happened recently when presidential candidates Ted Cruz and Donald Trump fell out. Some of us remember the halcyon days when all of the appalling harlequins who’d recently staggered out of the Republican Klown Kar were sniping at each other. But not Ted and Donald.

Democrats sure have some strong candidates - Monica Lewinsky for VP I guess?? What a bunch of losers. Hillary went out of her way to destroy all of Bill's mistresses further enabling his behaviors - and they tout how she's looking after women. Give me a break crooked Hillary. Trump 2016 - the only sensible candidate. I cant wait till he cleans up that Washington cesspool - especially Obamas idiots

The Democrats need someone "as smart as Trump"?
The Democrats have a long time Senator and a prior Senator and Secretary of State in the running for the nomination.
The last thing Democrats or the United States needs is a sociopath like Trump.

No matter what spin people put on Donald Trump. he just completed a hostile take over of the Republican Party without using his own money and they did not understand what was occurring. If the Democrats get lucky someone as smart as Trump may do the same for them. Unfortunately I am not sure you can find any Democrats that smart, otherwise they would not be Democrats.
