No left turns http://theweek.com/articles/583229/democrats-2016-strategy-assumes-america-lurching-left-are-wrong Thing is, people aren’t that ideological, which actually tips in favor of a mildly right-ist political landscape. Which is why it’s true that America was/is a center-right nation. I just don’t think that’s changed.
The making of President Rubio / I’m just not sure the country is ready to elect a sexless nag for President: Ezra think’s it’s Rubio v Clinton. http://www.vox.com/2015/10/16/9548305/marco-rubio-trump Such that the potentiality of a Biden run seems diminished, I agree.
HRC is going to pick Julian Castro apparently. http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/10/15/us-usa-electon-clinton-idUSKCN0S92Q820151015 Ya know, to have a Hispanic on the ticket such that the GOP will no doubt have one.

I think bat flipping is fine, by the way http://mlb.nbcsports.com/2015/10/16/mets-to-start-matt-harvey-in-game-1-of-nlcs-vs-cubs/ Published elsewhere, I’d picked Houston and CHI for the wildcard victors, and Toronto, Houston, LA, and CHI for the divisional victors. So, just a couple wrong by now, but the big ones, CHI and TOR, are still in it for the World Series. I think this is the year, Cubs, team of destiny. Also… Chris Colabello of TOR now, at his advanced age and circuitous route to the majors, is going to come out of this with the credibility to have an 8 year career in which he’s made $7 – $10 mil. Ya know, a second coming of Kevin Millar. …I called that, cuz when he was here I could see he could hit.
Kareem Abdul-Jabber, cowboy gun enthusiast: http://time.com/4065124/democratic-debate-gun-control/ I find this reassuring. It can’t be wrong if Kareem’s into it.
