but i think much of the extent of the battle, and the grade of the hill, depend on who is the gop nom. yes, sanders does better than clinton against all of them, but from what i have seen, the boy wonder is going to be the toughest for either of them. cruz's theocratic bullshit won't fly with much of the population, and trump, while formidable, won't get as much crossover as bernie will. but rubio and his golden tongue will manage to con people into thinking he is the gop obama (or anti obama). personally, i think bernie will ultimately wipe the floor with the little snot. i mean, think of a debate...it will be ugly for rubio. and hillary, while she could out debate him even if she had to mime it, has a lot of baggage that he will no doubt exploit in a ge.
so bottom line...we have to keep our eye on the gop race, esp if rubio starts knocking out cruz for the number 2 spot.
